Curb Appeal Checklist: 4 Ways to Spruce Up Your Parking Lot

When you talk about the topic of curb appeal, most people tend to think of residential properties. However, its importance to facilities, retail stores, restaurants, and most businesses is invaluable. Maintaining the curb appeal of your parking lot is critical for perception as it will be the first impression for your customers and visitors. We’ve all visited a business, restaurant or facility that has given off the “wrong vibe”. 

That is why we here at Ideal Shield want to show you simple and cost-effective ways to add ideal curb appeal with our maintenance-free product line.

Bollards & Bollard Covers 

There is nothing that helps bring a parking lot or storefront together and adds much needed protection quicker than some Bollards and Bollard Covers. We here at Ideal Shield invented the Original Bollard Cover over 25 years ago and continue to lead the industry in Bollard Cover sales and options. From Dome Top Bollard Covers to Flat Top Bollard Covers, Decorative Bollard Cover designs to any color you can imagine to meet branding needs. That is why Ideal Shield has you covered. 

But it’s not just the Bollard Covers we excel at. We also offer a wide array of U.S. Steel Bollards that are available in standard Pipe Bollards and Crash Rated Bollards for protection, as well as Removable Locking Bollards and Collapsible Bollards for temporary access areas.

Unlike concrete blocks, our lightweight Ultra Parking Stops are the perfect height for low-profile vehicles and allow for lower shipping costs and easy installation while being ultimately indestructible. Made from 100% recycled material and available in three different color options to meet branding needs, Ideal Shield has you covered.
