How many different sizes do you offer?
Our 1/4” bollard cover can fit over all pipe sizes from 3”- 12” diameter. Height depends on the diameter though the max cover height we offer is 84".
How do I determine what bollard cover size to order?
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″
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.
