Capitalising on the active travel boom, Leafield Highways has launched a brand new Cycle Lane Separator (CLS) bollard range and is already seeing success across the country.

The range includes three different styles – CLS Bollard, CLS Modular Island and CLS DB Island – and is in use in Bristol, Liverpool, St Helens, Ealing, North Tyneside, Bradford and Birmingham.

Designed to be easy to install, durable and maintenance free the products are manufactured in-house in Wiltshire for a highly visible separation between cycle lanes and traffic lanes.

Leafield Highways, a division of Leafield Environmental, provided the following technical briefing:

The CLS bollard features a reflex material base combined with a rigid MDPE post, ensuring the bollard can withstand multiple impacts and return upright without any damage and replacement costs. Also, two RA2 (high intensity) reflective bands are recessed to further reduce the potential damage with vehicle impacts.

The reflector material for the bollard range has been purchased and manufactured in accordance with the CE marking standard.

It is available in a wide choice of colours and heights and fixing options are available in shield, asphalt and concrete anchors.

The CLS Modular Traffic calming island features a flexible polymer post allowing the bollard to withstand multiple impacts and return upright into the modular traffic calming island base system. The two recessed areas for 360-degree RA2 (high intensity) reflective bands will also reduce vehicle impacts. Available in various colours, heights and lengths.

The CLS DB Island features a vulcanised rubber ‘DB’ base, a flexible polymer post ensuring the bollard, with two visible reflective RA2 (high intensity) bands, will withstand vehicle impacts. Available in two heights and lengths.
