Roydon, UK - Bollards International recently refurbished the street furniture for the new Deiniol Shopping Centre in Bangor, North Wales.
Roydon-based specialists Bollards International said the centre, named after Saint Deiniol, the first Bishop of Bangor, is in view of Bangor Cathedral, and style and elegance were important to the design team.
For its street furniture Bollards International uses a high-impact polyurethane, and says an increasing percentage of this is made using natural oil polyols based, for example, on rape seed. While the resulting bollards equal the strength of traditional cast-iron products they do not-corrode and are "virtually maintenance free," says the manufacturer.
For Bangor, the bollards - at roadside and pedestrian locations around the new centre - feature Deiniol logos picked out in reflective yellow paint.
"They will require very little maintenance to continue to look good," commented Bollards International managing director Dr Barrie Colvin.
