How To Install Bollards Without Concrete

Concrete bollards are heavy, difficult to install and unforgiving to objects that collide with them. While they may seem like the most effective way to protect your business assets from rogue vehicles, installing the FlexCore Bollard from McCue is a better solution. Learn just how easy it is to add these to your property. 

No More Concrete. Install The FlexCore Bollard from McCue.

FlexCore Bollards: Easier Installation Than Concrete

McCue makes bollard installation a cinch. Our surface-mounted FlexCore Bollards can be installed in as little as 10 minutes using only three self-threading concrete anchors. All you have to do is:

  1. Place the base plate on the concrete mounting surface
  2. Mark three holes on the concrete where the holes of the baseplate are located, then drill three pilot holes into the concrete 
  3. Use an impact driver to drive the concrete anchors through the base plate, washer and damper into the concrete surface and tighten 
  4. Slide the plastic FlexCore Shell over the spring-steel core 
  5. Lock the shell into place with easy locking pins to prevent theft 

That’s it. No excavating. No pouring concrete. No maintenance.

FlexCore Bollard Installation is Easier Than Concrete

Note: These are simplified installation instructions. Read the detailed instructions on how to install the FlexCore Bollard. 

Advantages of the McCue FlexCore Bollard 

The FlexCore Bollard is comprised of two parts:

  1. A high-strength spring-steel post core with an industrial shock absorber – The steel core and shock absorber disperse energy from impacts without destroying the concrete floor. 
  2. A thick HDPE shell that never needs painting – It absorbs small impacts and spins to deflect glancing blows.

Other advantages include:

  • Designed to withstand impacts and weathering
  • Available in two standard colors, or you can order custom colors to match your store or warehouse decor
  • No exposed hardware, which eliminates tripping hazards
