Product Description

The DuraFlex is a durable and passively safe traffic bollard that is compatible with a suitable 50x50 Retention Socket. This enables the rapid installation and removal of surface mounted street furniture, by authorised personnel.

  • Rapid and safe installation and removal

  • BS EN 12767:2007 100kph NE4 compliant

  • All round 360° visibility 

  • BS 8442:2015 compliant

  • 100% Recyclable shell

Once the 50x50 Retention Socket has been installed, the DuraFlex bollard is ready to be inserted into the socket. Using an Allen key, the plate covering the side chamber of the Retention Socket is removed. The compatible foot of the DuraFlex bollard is then inserted into the Retention Socket, a spanner is used to tighten the locking mechanism, which will then hold the DuraFlex bollard in the correct position. No further excavation will be required and you can simply, open the chamber, unlock the mechanism and insert a new bollard as and when required, in a matter of minutes.

The bollard is simply slotted into the Retention Socket and secured into place
On occasion installation cages used for the mounting of Retro-reflective Self Righting Bollards can be damaged during a vehicle impact, this can bend or even shear off the threaded sections used when installing the bollard. It is then often necessary to excavate, remove and replace these. Retention Sockets are flush to ground level therefore cannot be damaged in this way.

Due to the increased efficiency when implementing the changeover of a DuraFlex Bollard into an existing Retention Socket, replacement may be able to be done with little or no traffic management. This should however be subject to a risk assessment by a suitably qualified person.

DuraFlex a durable and passively safe traffic bollard that will rapidly return to a vertical stance following an impact

The DuraFlex is the latest addition to the Mallatite traffic bollard range. This new bollard has been engineered to produce similar results to the highly successful TrueFlex RSRB, delivering reliable performance at a highly competitive price point.

  • All round 360° visibility

  • Single or twin aspect

  • Impact tested

  • BS 8442:2015 compliant

  • 100 % Recyclable shell

  • Compatible with any standard base light, socket or ground anchor


Passively safe:

The DuraFlex is a Self Righting Bollard (SRB), and has been tested in line with industry standards to ensure it will flex under impact, and then rebound to an upright position. This minimises both the likelihood of injury or vehicle damage as well as the need to replace the bollard following an impact.

Installation options:

The DuraFlex is easy to install using our foundation cage, retention socket, or can be retro-fitted to any redundant base light.


The DuraFlex is very low maintenance. As with all retro-reflective traffic products it is important that the reflective material be clean and free from damage. The surface of the DuraFlex can easily cleaned with water mixed with a mild detergent.
Regular inspection and cleaning schedule is recommended to ensure optimum performance.

Also available in black:

As standard, the DuraFlex is manufactured from a white polymer, however you can have a black one if you prefer. Just ask our sales team when you enquire about our new black DuraFlex Traffic Bollard.

Standard Sign Options:

Our traffic bollards are single aspect as standard, with the option of double or multiple aspects if required. We manufacture all our bollards at our facility in the West Midlands, which means we can apply any compliant sign face for use on the highway, and we can even make branded or bespoke sign faces for use off highway.
