Glasdon UK - Creating Safer Cycle Routes
Providing space for cycling around our local environment creates a safer and more attractive place to live, and high-quality cycle infrastructure leads to a higher percentage of cyclists. Glasdon have 60 years’ experience in designing, manufacturing and supplying bollards and road safety equipment ideal for use within your cycle scheme.
The Glasdon range of bollards and posts are perfect for creating and highlighting safe cycle routes and cycle infrastructure, with a large selection of sizes and styles available, as well as various options for sign carrying bollards.
The new Glenwood™ 170 Post and Glenwood™ 170 Signhead Post are manufactured from a unique, realistic timber grain material to complement rural environments. Both designs are able to clearly display signs on all four post sides including route markers, which can be adapted to any scheme.
Another product designed specifically for cycle routes is Mini-Ensign™ rebound bollard in white Impactapol®, which can be illuminated for schemes where increased visibility of bollards at night time is a requirement. Illuminated bollards ensure cyclists and drivers are aware of the road layout when the carriageway has been segregated for cycle traffic by a traffic island.
A well-designed cycle route can provide a quicker and healthier alternative for travel around any town, city or urban landscape. Providing a delineated route using Glasdon products to highlight correct usage can educate and motivate cyclists, and encourages safe use of cycle roads and routes.
