Concrete Steel Bollard-Preventing Smash and Grab Thefts

Solution for StLouis Smash and Grab Thefts-Repost

The Recent Smash and Grab Thefts rampant in the StLouis Region has prompted me to offer a Vehicle Barrier to Secure any Local StLouis store front from costly damage and the insurance claims that come from Smash and Grab Thefts.

Protective Bollards come in many shapes and sizes.  The drawing below is an Low Cost Alternative to the Protective Barriers seen around Banks, Security Offices and other buildings that house valuable assets.

As in all the projects I’m called to work on I go above and beyond the normal scope and choose to add additional protection by setting the Protective Ballard a Minimum depth of 36 Inches into the walkway.
