An important aspect of every business is keeping employees safe. At Cypress Construction in Florida a car drove through the garage door where the company’s office was housed putting employees in a perilous and potentially deadly position.
Bollards and bollard covers were placed in front of the garage door offering protection to employees working in the office. This also worked to prevent a vehicle from ever being able to drive through the door again.
The Telway Diner on Michigan Avenue in Detroit was part of high speed police chase. An multi-vehicle accident occurred during the chase and one of the vehicles was pushed into the bollards surrounding the sign. Without the bollard protection the Telway sign easily could have tipped over onto the popular burger joint or worse onto an innocent bystander.
During the clean up process the bollards needed to be replaced and Ideal Shield covers helped improve the look of these very important safety precautions.
This is another great example of how taking that one extra step of installing bollards protects people and the investment of hard working people.
