    Shallow Mount Technology

    Did you know our shallow mount bollard requires an excavation of just 4 - 6" with no need for rebar? Shallow mount technology not only speeds up the installation, but also simplifies it by removing the need for rebar. That's an impressive feat considering most traditional bollard installations require deep excavations and extensive rebar cages. Shallow mount bollard installation also causes minimal site disruption and uses far less concrete.
