Bollard Covers

Light it up

Accent Your Outdoor Pathway

Ideal Shield’s Lighted Bollard Covers are environmentally friendly and cost-effective solutions for outdoor applications. We’ve created two attractive designs: UV Solar Lighted and Hardwired LED Lighted, to increase safety for any darkened walkway.

Available in any color, these long-lasting products do not require paint or any other maintenance efforts. Lighted Bumper Post Sleeves provide a touch of elegance, while also increasing vigilance, to any site.

Both our hardwired and solar powered lighted bollard covers fit over 6” pipe and are made of 1/4” nominal wall thickness polyethylene thermoplastic (LDPE). The light cover is made of clear or frosted acrylic glass.

The Bollard Cover measures up to 58” tall, but can be cut to custom heights at no additional cost.

The UV Solar Powered Lighted Bollard Covers recharge with daylight, even on cloudy days while the Hardwired Lighted Bollard Cover draws 5 watts of power and can be wired in a circuit up to 200 lights. Our products also include patented installation tape, ensuring a quick and easy fit.

Frequently Asked

Our Decorative Bollards Covers are made to fit over 6’’ pipe or 10’’ pipe. We have four styles that fit over 6’’ pipe and three styles that fit over 10’’. We do offer inserts to fit over smaller pipe sizes in order for the bollard cover to fit secure.
The only information we need from you is the size of your pipe you want to cover. When you receive your material, the insert inside of the bollard cover. All you have to do is slide your deco cover over your steel pipe.
Measure the circumference (distance around the post) Take that dimension and divide it by pi (3.14) Example: 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. You will apply the neoprene tape around the circumference of the steel bollard 3’’ down from top of post and 3’’ up from bottom of the post. Once the tape is applied, you will slide the bollard cover over and you should hear air squeezing out between the post and sleeve creating a vacuum seal. If the above directions are followed correctly, the Ideal Shield Bollard Cover should fit tight with no gaps.
Decorative Bollard Covers are available in any color to match corporate branding or architecture.
All we need is a Pantone color number. We have done Custom Colors for Fortune 500 companies with great results.
Lead time will depend on if we have matched the color before. We have over 300 color matches in inventory. Lead time is 2-3 weeks if matched and 4-6 weeks if it’s a custom match.
No, we do not have minimum on Ideal Shield Bollard Covers.
Our Lighted Bollard Cover requires UV rays which means daylight to charge the cell. Unlike solar, which requires sun rays to charge the cell. That means that your bollards will light at night even on the cloudiest, snowiest and rainiest days.

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
