    It’s more than just a modern design and a competitive price.
    The highly reflective Park-Click is also very stable, robust and pleasant to use. The post is made of lightweight aluminium so that almost no rusting can occur.
    Three versions of the Park-Click available: removable, retractable and fixed. The retractable version of the Park-Click can be locked into place or folded away in one smooth movement. The locking mechanism also ensures that the Park-Click will always stand straight upwards. The removable post can easily be unlocked and stored in the Drop-Box storage element. This version is also equipped with sheer pins for added safety in the event of a collision.
    It is a competitively priced barrier post with a modern design.

    Recognition of Good Industrial Design Award
    The Park-Click has recently been awarded a Good Industrial Design Award. In order to qualify for the award, a product must be more than just beautiful; functionality, innovation and materials are equally important. The jury decided that the Park-Click meets all these criteria. In recent years, at least nine products have received this honour.

    The ultimate solution in cycle path safety

    This autumn, VelopA introduces the Re-Flex, a cycle lane bollard that is designed to be kinder to cyclists and helps to prevent collisions with bicycle lane bollards. The Re-Flex posts are easy to see and flexible, making them by far the best solution on cycle lanes and cycle paths. The Re-Flex has also been awarded a Good Industrial Design Award.

    Re-Flex: eye-catching and cyclist-friendly
    The Re-Flex has LED lighting and high-reflectivity strips. It is exactly the right height and width and the colour ensures that it stands out and cannot be missed. All this means that cyclists are much less likely to collide with them. However, if a cyclist does collide with the Re-Flex post, it is not rigid and has some built-in ‘give’. The flexible material will also bend, helping to prevent injuries. But although the Re-Flex is flexible - it has a steel core that makes sure that cars are kept well away.

    Smart LED lighting
    The Re-Flex’s fully recessed and waterproof LED lighting unit is powered with a solar panel, making it fully self-sufficient. The unit has no less than eight LEDs, making the post visible from all directions. Depending on the length of the darkness and the amount of energy stored, the system can select the best lighting programme to run all night (fully lit / blinking / flashing on the right for approaching cyclists).

    The ultimate solution
    By combining the Reflex with Alerrrt raised profile road markings and a Drop-Box storage element, you can create a super-strong weapon to help prevent cycling accidents. The Alerrrt alarm ridges can be placed on the cycle path in front of the post. The vibrations will alert cyclists as they cycle over the ridges so that they can swerve in time to avoid the post. The Re-Flex can easily be unlocked and stowed in the Drop-Box storage element. It takes just a couple of seconds to stow each post below ground level. Once stowed, there is no obstacle at all on the road surface.

    The Re-Flex has recently been awarded a Good Industrial Design Award. In order to qualify for the award, a product has to be more than just beautiful; functionality, innovation and materials are equally important. The jury found that the Re-Flex met all these criteria.
