"Steelmark has been fantastic to deal with. They always answered all queries in a professional and timely manner. The quality of bollards and time frames provided kept us on track with our tight construction programs. I purchased 165 in ground bollards which we used in our McDonalds projects throughout Melbourne like Cheltenham, Geelong Central and Kangaroo Flat. We are 100% sure to use Steelmark again as they are one of the most reliable companies I have had the pleasure of dealing with.'
I am very happy with the service provided by Steelmark. I ordered two 140mm round base plate powder coated bollards to use at a small shopping centre in Tannum Sands Qld. They had a very easy to use, streamlined quote/ invoice system and I was able to make payment easily online. The products were shipped very quickly and came straight to my office door. The fixings provided were easy to install and the whole job was one of the smoothest we have completed. I would recommend their products and service to anyone seeking safety products online.
"Service with Steelmark has been fantastic! Constant communication via email and phone call made me feel reassured we would be looked after and the product would be delivered on time. Once our payment was made, shipping was instant and the product looks great at our sites in Maryville NSW, Mt. Waverley and Thomastown in Victoria. We have used Steelmark thrice so far and if we need further product, they will be our first point of contact."
“We like Steelmark because of their value for money and quick delivery. We purchased 165mm square base plate bollards and used it in RAAF Base Richmond. Their finished products are nice and it complements our own work. We will definitely use Steelmark again for future projects”
I just wanted to let you know that your online payment method and service is the best I have come across.

Why Steelmark Bollards?
- We love bollards
- We specialise in bollards

- We have the best value for money bollards in Australia
- We are a 100% Australian owned company.
Steelmark started its life as a general purpose fabricator over 30 years ago as Commercial and Domestic Steel Fabricators. When the naughties came along we felt a name change to Steelmark Australia was a positive move and we have moved from strength to strength.
Over the years we have completed work from small domestic work to 12 month million dollar contracts for the top tier one builders in Australia.
Our experience has taught us how to fabricate bollards to the highest standard and our total package is presented with the end user / installer. We put in the extra work that other companies do not.
All our bollards are hot dip galvanised and then polished to remove any imperfections. They are then powder coated to an exacting standard. Once this is finished every bollard is inspected and if any defects are detected they do not qualify as a quality Steelmark bollard.
At Steelmark we understand that manufacturing a quality product is only half the battle. Providing a quality service and at the right price is essential to our customers. To achieve this Steelmark hold thousands of high quality certified bollards in stock. When an order is placed with Steelmark we ship your purchase on the same day.
Steelmark is also aware that while our customers may not think about bollards on a daily basis like we do, we understand when you want a bollard you want it as fast as possible. The traditional process of waiting for bollards to be fabricated, galvanised, powder coated, inspected and packaged with the customer waiting up to 8 weeks before delivery is not acceptable here at Steelmark.
We package our bollards to ensure they arrive at your site in the same pristine condition they were in when they were manufactured. We also wrap all our bollards in a protective plastic wrap to ensure they do not suffer any superficial damage after installation and while you are waiting for the other trades to complete their work prior to final inspection or practical completion.
If you can find a better price we want to know about it. Years of experience and hard work has been done to provide our bollards at the best possible price to our customers.Read More
How To Choose a Bollard: What Type of Bollard Do You Need?
Bollards are posts that stand between pedestrian areas and roads. They serve many purposes, but their main purpose is to ensure the safety of people and properties. Crash-resistant bollard barriers prevent vehicles from entering areas that are not intended for driving, such as sidewalks and bike lanes.
But bollards do much more than that. To determine the type of bollard to buy, it’s important to learn about their applications.
Main Types of Bollards
Embedded bollards, also known as permanent bollards, are installed deep into the ground. Also known as permanent bollard barriers, they’re made of durable materials such as steel and concrete. Embedded bollards need to be crash-resistant since they’re designed to prevent vehicles from driving into a pedestrian area. They also protect properties from impact in the event that a car crashes into the building.
Automatic bollards are retractable bollards that rise from the ground in seconds. Made of steel, they’re designed to temporarily impede the flow of traffic. A common example is a residential parking garage where people need to present identification before they’re granted access. They’re also seen on streets that are open or closed during certain times of the day.
Where do people park their bikes? On decorative bollards. This type of bollard is purely for aesthetic or architectural purposes. Decorative bollard barriers aren’t exposed to traffic, so they don’t have to be for heavy-duty use. They’re usually made of aluminium or iron, and they can be customized to complement the style of the building.
Removable bollard barriers are similar to retractable bollards, but the main difference is that they’re easier to remove. They aren’t installed in the ground, but instead, they’re locked in place. Removable bollards are ideal for areas that need to be opened or closed off at a moment’s notice. For instance, removable bollards may be placed around a building that’s hosting a public function.
Flexible bollards or rebounding bollards bend when they’re run over. They absorb impact and can bounce back without incurring any damage. They’re not intended to protect properties, but instead, they’re used as sign markers. Hence, they’re not ideal for areas with high foot traffic. Rebounding bollards are better suited for parking areas.
Purchasing a Bollard
When purchasing a bollard barrier, you should determine your reasons for buying one in the first place. What do you need a bollard for? Where do you intend to install your bollards?
For instance, if you’re planning on protecting your building, you may be interested in a permanent in-ground bollard. Alternatively, if you want to restrict access for a short period, you should consider removable bollards.
If you’re not sure which type of bollard is the best for your needs, remember that you can always consult a professional.
Installing a Bollard Barrier
Installing a bollard barrier isn’t something you can DIY. You’ll need heavy-duty equipment such as a digger, concrete mixer, and more. With that said, it can be a risky process especially if you don’t know what you’re doing.
That’s why you should always leave bollard barrier installation to the experts. At Steelmark, we work with vetted installation companies that can install your bollards at a reasonable cost.
