*Premium colors available at an additional cost.

*Reproduction of web colors are not always “what you see is what you get” because colors on your monitor and the color produced physically can, and most likely will, vary. This is because different devices have different color “languages” and will output color differently. The colors you see on your monitor are the result of reflective light and colors you see physically are a mix of different inks which will vary from your monitor display.

To get a better result it is important to choose your colors CAREFULLY. We cannot be held responsible for colors that are off a few shades due to the vast complexities of media differences. Choose a Pantone or Sherwin Williams colors to get the best result, or contact us and we will happily send you a sample.

 

How many different sizes do you offer?

Our Decorative Bollards Covers are made to fit over 6’’ pipe or 10’’ pipe. We have four styles that fit over 6’’ pipe and three styles that fit over 10’’. We do offer inserts to fit over smaller pipe sizes in order for the bollard cover to fit secure.

How does the insert work?

The only information we need from you is the size of your pipe you want to cover. When you receive your material, the insert is inside of the bollard cover. All you have to do is slide your deco cover over your steel pipe.

How do I determine what bollard cover size to order?

  1. Measure the circumference (distance around the post)
  2. Take that dimension and divide it by pi (3.14)
    Example: Circumference is 21’’. Divide by 3.14. Pipe size in 6.625’’
  3. The bollard cover size you need is 6’’

Why is the size of the bollard cover smaller than the outside diameter of my pipe?

Pipe is measured by inside diameter. For example, 6” pipe has an outside diameter of 6 5/8”. Our bollard sizes coincide with the pipe’s outside diameter, ex. our 6” cover has an inside diameter of about 6 7/8” to fit over the 6 5/8” outside diameter of a 6” pipe.

How do I install a bollard cover?

Each bollard cover is delivered with two pieces of our patented foam neoprene tape. Apply the neoprene tape around the circumference of the steel bollard 3? down from the top of the post and 3? up from the bottom of the post. Once the tape is applied, slide the bollard cover over, eliciting the sound of air squeezing out between the post and sleeve as it creates a vacuum seal. If the above directions are followed correctly, the Ideal Shield Bollard Cover should fit tight with no gaps.

What colors do your bollards come in?

Decorative Bollard Covers are available in any color to match corporate branding or architecture.

How does the custom color process work?

All we need is a Pantone color number. We have done Custom Colors for Fortune 500 companies with great results.

What is the lead time on custom colors?

Lead time will depend on if we have matched the color before. We have over 300 color matches in inventory. Lead time is 2-3 weeks if matched and 4-6 weeks if it’s a custom match.

Is there a minimum quantity?

No, we do not require a minimum quantity.
