What size bollards does the Ribbed cover fit over?
Ideal Shield's Ribbed Decorative Bollards Covers are only available in a 10" option. We do offer inserts to fit over smaller pipe sizes in order for the bollard cover to fit secure.
How does the insert work?
The only information we need from you is the size of the pipe you want to cover. When you receive your material, the insert is inside of the bollard cover. All you have to do is slide your deco cover over your steel pipe.
How do I determine what bollard cover size to order?
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’’
Why is the size of the bollard cover smaller than the outside diameter of my pipe?
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.
How do I install a bollard cover?
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.
What colors are available?
Ribbed Decorative Bollard Covers are available in any color to match corporate branding or architecture.
How does the custom color process work?
All we need is a Pantone color number. We have done Custom Colors for Fortune 500 companies with great results.
What is the lead time on custom colors?
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.
