Never Paint Again

Setting the Industry Standard

Ideal Shield’s 1/8″ Bollard Covers are a maintenance-free and cost-effective bollard sleeve option that compare favorably to the competitor’s “standard” option. 

The 1/8″ thick bumper post sleeves are designed to fit 4″ and 6″ pipes and are available in 13 standard colors, though custom colors are available. Standard heights are between 52″ – 69″ though, unlike the competitors, we will custom cut your sleeves for no additional cost

Each Bollard Cover comes with a 5 year No-Fade Guarantee, meaning you’ll save on time and maintenance costs since you won’t have to worry about painting again. 

As for that installation, it couldn’t be any easier with our patented installation tape. You will be able to install the covers within seconds while eliminating the need for messy adhesives. 

For the eco-friendliness, not only with the covers save on using and wasting paint but the bollard sleeves are also manufactured from recyclable plastic and produced right here in the USA

Want to make your bollards standout? Make your property pop by adding your own custom colors or graphics, including logos and slogans, with Custom Branding Options for bollard covers as well. Eye Bolts for chain attachments are also available.

If you’re looking for even more color options or a more heavy-duty bollard cover option, check out the standard 1/4″ Bollard Cover, which is available in any color to match your branding or style needs.

The 1/8" bollard cover is available to fit 4", 6" and 8" steel pipe diameters at any length needed. If you have a larger or smaller pipe size diameter, our ¼" wall thickness bollard cover fits all pipe sizes 3"-10".
  • 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 standard colors are yellow, red, orange, white, handicap blue, gray, forest green, urban bronze, black, brown, orange and lime green (PPP only). Custom colors are available 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

“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.”

William Myers - Amazon

“I have been truly impressed with the covers we bought from you so many years ago. They have been exposed to direct sunlight for years and have not faded one bit after all this time! Kudos!”

Mark C. - UBT

“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
