Flat Top

How About Flat?

Been There, Done Flat

Ideal Shield’s Flat Top Bollard Covers feature two grooves toward the top of the bollard cover to allow reflective tape to lay flush against the sleeve.

Made from Low-Density Polyethylene Thermoplastic (LDPE), the Flat Top Bollard Covers are only available in 1/8″ wall thickness, which will end the need for painting bollards ever again. 

Easily installed with our patented tape (included with every order), our Flat Top Bollard Covers slide cleanly over 4″ or 6″ steel pipe bollards for quick and permanent installation.

While the Flat Top Bumper Post Sleeves are 67″ tall (standard), they’re designed to fit a maximum pipe height of 65″. Custom cuts are available upon request at no additional cost

The Flat Top Covers are available in five standard colors: Yellow, Onyx Gray, Black, Red, and 285 Blue. Ask about custom color options. 

Reflective tape is included with every order at no additional cost. Tape colors include Yellow, Red, and Silver.

The Flat Top Bollard Cover is available to fit 4’’ and 6’’ steel pipe diameters. If you have a larger or smaller pipe size diameter, our Standard 1/4" bollard cover fits all pipe sizes 3’’- 12’’.
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. 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.
The Flat Top Bollard Cover is available in Yellow, Onyx Gray, Black, Red, and 285 Blue.
Yes, reflective stripes are available for Ideal Shield’s Reflective Bollard Cover at no additional charge. Reflective stripes are available in silver, red, or yellow.

Our Customers

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
