How parking road hemispheres are installed:

Taking into account the fact that a granite road hemisphere with a diameter of 50 cm has a mass of 90 kg, it can be safely simply placed on the road. It stays there by its own weight. A granite parking barrier with a diameter of 40 cm is already significantly lighter – 47 kg. Its installation can be carried out with adhesives – sealants, as well as frost-resistant cement mixtures. If you want to protect yourself from theft of such an elegant architectural object, then you should drill a hole on the back side of the granite hemisphere for reinforcement, with a diameter of 10 – 20 mm. to a depth of 5 – 7 cm. This reinforcement should be embedded in the paving to a depth of 10 – 15 cm. Then it will be very difficult to dismantle such a parking limiter.
