Heavy Duty
Flexible Bollards

Lifetime Warranty

Get some Give with some Grit

Ideal’s Heavy-Duty Flexible Bollard from FlexPost is the strongest flexible steel bollard option on the market and we prove it by offering a Lifetime Warranty.

Better suited for high-traffic and heavy-machinery work areas, our Heavy-Duty Flexible Bollards come with zinc-coated anchors, for both concrete and asphalt installations, and is designed to move only when contacted by a vehicle.

This unique, reliable design allows business owners and warehouse managers to place these flexible bollards in place of existing standard bollard posts that are being hit on a regular basis to help limit impact damage on both the bollard and the vehicles. This makes the Heavy-Duty Flexible Bollard a money saver for both the business and the customer.

We also carry the standard Flexible Bollard, the best solution for areas that seem to get bumped from time to time.

The XL Flex line is more rigid than the standard line and cannot be easily flexed by passersby - they must be bumped by the weight of a vehicle to actually flex. The XL Flex line also has lifetime warranties!

What our customers are saying

“First and foremost, we have loved the bases. They have gone through the various states of weather that Minnesota has to offer and they are withstanding the weather and doing a great job for us. At this time, we have all of our needs, however, after the Super Bowl and when we head into our spring events we could be looking to purchasing additional signs. ”
