When you need an an area blocked off (like an alley, pathway or trail) but need to allow temporary access. You may need to allow delivery, emergency, or maintenance vehicles for small periods of time, but most of the time the area needs to be blocked off.
Although we offer both, we highly recommend the galvanized unit. Through galvanizing, we are able to prevent the unit from rusting. If rusted, bare pipe will rust to the bare floor sleeve and will no longer be "removable."
The unit comes with an 1/8" yellow Bollard Cover, but any other Ideal Shield cover option can be substituted! Please note that there may be a surcharge for different covers.
Ideal Shield offers two standard Removable Bollard sizes including 4" Schedule 40 pipe with a 5" square floor sleeve as well as a 6" schedule 40 pipe with a 7" round floor sleeve. Standard height is 60" total (18" in the ground, 42" above).

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
