Avoid Errors, Protect Retail Air Compressors from Accidents

Many gas stations and retail stores like Shell, Mobil, Costco, Lowes, and more offer free air pumps at their locations as a courtesy to their customers. Similar to gas pump areas, these air pumps are subject to vehicle damage due to distracted drivers and accidents. Without the proper protection in place, you could be in store for costly repairs and replacements.

Don’t worry; Ideal Shield has you covered. We offer the industry’s strongest and most reliable Bollards and Bollard Covers on the market to help ensure the safety of your customers and establishment, as well as to help protect your air pump investments!

Adding covers to your Bollards is a simple way to not only increase visibility in air pump areas but also enhance your establishment’s curb appeal. Bright-colored sleeves can also help make entryways clearer, especially at night when accidents are more prone to happen as everything is more difficult to see.
