Reliance Foundry is a North American supplier of high-quality site furnishings and traffic management products. They prioritize customer service, quality, and innovation. Their products include a range of decorative and security bollards, bike parking, and traffic management products that can suit any application and complement any aesthetic.
The challenge in this case was providing up-to-date security that did not clash with the early 20th century feel of the park. Regular steel pipe bollards would detract from the architecture and maintaining the historic-feel was imperative at professional baseball’s oldest functioning park.
A bollard is a short post that is used to create either a visual or protective perimeter. They're available in a wide variety of materials (steel, iron, plastic) and functions (removable, flexible, lighting).
The designers overcame this challenge by installing Reliance Foundry’s model R-7539 bollards over top of embedded steel pipe. The cast iron bollards feature a style that resembles that was characteristic of the time when Fenway Park was first built. The bollards feature a hollow interior which allows them to be installed over the impact-resistant pipe, effectively creating a 1912-façade.
In all, 55 steel pipe bollard and bollard covers were installed outside Fenway Park and the end result was perimeter security that was fully integrated into the site’s historic architecture.
