Frequently asked questions about bollards, bollard covers, steel pipe, and related products.
How many different sizes do you offer?
The 1/8’’ bollard cover is available to fit 4’’ and 6’’ steel pipe diameters. If you have a larger or smaller pipe size diameter, our ¼’’ wall thickness bollard cover fits all pipe sizes 3’’-10’’.
How do I determine what bollard cover size to order?
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?
Our standard colors are yellow, red, orange, white, handicap blue, gray, forest green, urban bronze, black, brown and orange. Custom colors are available for larger quantities upon request. To discuss a custom color option, please contact customer service at (866) 825-8659.
Do reflective stripes come on the bollard covers?
No, reflective stripes do not come on the bollard covers but we can add them for an additional charge. However, we do not recommend using the stripes because it would turn a maintenance-free product into something demanding constant repair. Depending on the application, you may have to replace the stripes several times during the life of the cover.
