First invented back in 1994, Ideal Shield’s 1/4″ Bollard Cover is The Original Bumper Post Sleeve and the most trusted bollard cover on the market.
Our “Never Paint Again” cover fits 3″-12″ (diameter) pipe sizes and covers a max pipe height up to 84″ (depending on diameter) with a secure fit every time. And unlike the competitors, Ideal will also cut each cover to match your pipe needs exactly at no additional cost.

Measure the circumference (distance around the post)
Take that dimension and divide it by pi (3.14)
Circumference is 21″
Divide by 3.14
Pipe size in 6.625″
The bollard cover size you need is 6″
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.
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.
Our 1/4" Bollard Covers come in 12 standard colors but are also available in any color imaginable with our color matching and custom color programs. Contact us for more information.

“We purchased some sign bollard covers from you all a few months ago and they work great! So far we’ve had 0 signs fall over in our parking lot. This time last year we had 2-3 fall over so already we’ve saved roughly $500 dollars in damages.”

“First and foremost, we have loved the sign bases. They have gone through the various states of weather that Minnesota has to offer and they are withstanding the weather and doing a great job for us. At this time, we have all of our needs, however, after the Super Bowl and when we head into our spring events we could be looking to purchasing additional signs. ”
Representative from US Bank Stadium, home of the Minnesota Vikings & Super Bowl 52
