The re-balancing of traffic flows in urban areas to the benefit of pedestrians and bicycles has reinforced the importance of street furniture elements.

Its the case with barriers, which placed continuously, secure dangerous zones or guide pedestrian flows (school exits, stadiums, arenas etc.). The barrier also allows, other than its anti-crossing function, other uses for comfort and conviviality: to hold onto, to lean against while waiting for a friend and more-so. Loyal to its general approach, AREA systematically offers a variety of its bollards and slim bollards in the shape of barriers to be used alternately, resulting in both rhythm and coherence.
