Helpful Guide to Buying Ideal Shield Bollard Covers

Whether this is your first time visiting Ideal Shield or you’re a returning customer, we’re here to help make your purchasing experience as easy as possible. 

There are a ton of different Bollard Cover sizes and options out on the market. From expensive stainless steel bollard covers to affordable plastic bollard covers and everything in between, finding the right Bollard Cover for your needs takes research. It’s all a matter of preference but for most buyers, plastic is the much more common route to take as it’s not only cost-effective during the sale but also throughout the life of the product from the lack of maintenance and painting costs. 

Follow these helpful steps to make sure you not only get your Bollard Covers as soon as possible but you receive the exact Bollard Covers for your project needs. 

1. What kind of Bollard Cover will you need?

Will these covers deal with high traffic areas and potential vehicle impacts? Or are these covers going to be more for aesthetics and won’t see much impact? If you’re looking to just freshen up your bollards, the 1/8″ Bollard Covers will get the job done. But if you’re looking for something that’ll deal with higher traffic areas, we suggest going with the 1/4″ Bollard Covers.

Looking to really make your property pop? We offer 10 different Decorative Bollard Cover options that will give any storefront, parking lot, campus, or business a high-end more sophisticated look. And, not to mention, the Decorative Bollard Covers are much more cost-effective compared to stainless steel or ornamental bollards.

2. What size Bollard Covers will you need? 

At Ideal Shield, we offer Bollard Covers to fit over anything from a 3″ pipe to a 12″ pipe. As for how we get the right sizing, we’re looking for the Outside Diameter of your pipe. However, if you get the Inside Diameter or the Circumference, we can work with that too.
