Parking posts are the ideal solution for those looking to restrict vehicle access at specific times. This makes them great for areas such as car parks or pedestrianised areas where vehicles may be allowed access during some time of the day but not others.
Here at Locks and Hardware Direct we have a huge range of parking posts, which can be viewed below. If you have any further queries about any of our products then please get in touch with our team of experts by phoning 0800 304 7355.
As parking posts are designed to only limit access at certain times, there must be a way to allow traffic past at certain times. We have three main types of parking posts available:
Fold Down Parking Posts
As the name suggests these parking posts fold down, allowing access when in the folded down position and restricting access when locked in the upright position.This gives the benefit of not having to store the parking post when not in use, but some may find this aesthetically unpleasing.
Removable Parking Posts
These are parking posts which can be removed when not in use. This means that you’ll hardly be able to tell that the parking posts should be their when they’re removed, removing the aesthetic issues faced by the fold down versions. It does mean that you have to have an area to store the parking posts when not in use.
Mole Parking Posts
Mole parking posts, sometimes referred to as telescopic posts, are the ones that can be pushed into the ground when not in use. This means you essentials get the best of both worlds when compared with fold down and removable parking posts. Due to the nature of these posts it does mean that they are harder to install, with a hole needing to be dug inline with the height of the parking post.
