Crash Bollards


Ultimate Stopping Power

Protect People, Places & Products

Ideal Shield is now offering the ASTM K4 Certified Set & Pour Crash Bollard

Tested and certified with ASTM F2656-07 M30 P1 rating, these security bollard barriers have been approved by the Department of Defense (DoD) and are now listed on the Anti-Ram Vehicle Barrier List. Designed for bi-directional stopping capability, one single standalone bollard has the ability to stop 15,000 lb. vehicle at 30 mph within one-meter penetration. 

But it’s not just the strength and sense of security that sets these storefront bollards apart.

The simple Set & Pour installation will also make life easier for everyone. Simply set a single prefabricated bollard in excavation and pour in the concrete (no rebar in the foundation). Don’t worry about tying, bolting, welding, assembly, or specialty subgrade, as it is not required. Excavation 30″ wide by 36″ deep with 3000 psi concrete. The bollards are one single unit with a lifting pin and are also field adjustable, as it is easy to install with turns and across grade elevation changes using a standard bollard.

The security bollards are cost-effective as the posts have an unrestricted spacing limit while maintaining ASTM M30 P1 certification and are also available in a Removable option for temporary access areas. 

Once your new steel security bollards are in place, you’ll want to make it look good by covering it with an Ideal Shield Bollard Cover. Brand it with your company colors and decals, or sleeve it with our Standard Dome-Top Bollard Covers, our stylish Decorative Bollard Covers, or any of our other Bollard Cover options to make the barrier more visually appealing. Galvanizing or powder coated finishes are also available upon request. 

Looking for custom designs for your new bollards? Whether it’s as a Bollard Sign System for the parking lot, linked with chain for a restricted area, or protecting an outdoor seating area, contact our experienced sales team today to learn about your options.

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. ”
