Frequently Asked

The 1/8" bollard cover is available to fit 4" and 6" steel pipe diameters. If you have a larger or smaller pipe size diameter, our ¼" wall thickness bollard cover fits all pipe sizes 3"-10".
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 standard colors are yellow, red, orange, white, handicap blue, gray, forest green, urban bronze, black, brown and orange. Custom colors are available for larger quantities upon request. To discuss a custom color option, please contact customer service at (866) 825-8659.
We do have some options that include reflective stripes! Ask a rep for details.

What our customers are saying

“First and foremost, we have loved the 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
