How to Properly Measure Bollards for Bollard Covers

So, you’re in the market for some new Bollard Covers but you don’t know exactly how to measure your Bollard post to get the right size fit. It’s more difficult than you may think as different companies have different sized Bollard Cover listings.

Let’s get you properly informed on how to properly measure Bollards for Bollard Covers

Step 1: Measure the Circumference around the Bollard

Some may have you measuring over the top of the bollard but if there is any concrete poured in already then there’s a good chance you will get an incorrect measurement.  That is why using the Bollard’s circumference is the safest and easiest way to ensure a proper size measurement. 

Step 2: Measure the Height of the Bollard

This is the simplest measurement to get. Just go from the base of the bollard to the top of the pipe, give our experienced sales team the height, and we’ll ensure your covers will fit properly over the pipe. You can also request the Bollard Covers to be taller than the pipe to make them look larger for determent.
