Five things to consider for stainless steel bollard:
304 or 316 stainless steel
There are two types of stainless steel: 304 and 316. If you live near saltwater or use salt in winter, it is highly recommended that you use 316 stainless steel. It is made of molybdenum and changed to marine grade stainless steel. Its corrosion resistance is much better than 304.
Which diameter looks best or best for your purpose
What is the total length you need, and sometimes it’s best to check the local code to determine how many pillars must be buried below the slope?
Flat top, dome or sloping top
The flat-topped bollards invite to sit down, birds (and their gifts) and empty bottles. It also accumulates residues in the rainwater, which may contain toxic substances. We recommend using domes or sloping tops as they will prevent other uses.
