Ideal Shield’s Architectural Decorative Bollard Covers fit over 6” pipes and steel inserts are available to fit smaller pipe sizes. This sturdy structure, made of 1/4″ nominal wall thickness polyethylene thermoplastic (LDPE), is available in any color.
With an overall height of 52”, we offer to cut to custom heights at no additional charge.
The Decorative Bollard Cover arrives with our patented installation tape for a permanent fit. Designed to match your building exterior or corporate branding needs, our products establish a sleek and striking appearance for your building exterior.
Ideal Shield Decorative Bumper Post Sleeves enhance the aesthetics of security posts and steel bollards. Our Decorative Covers are easily installed and are a cost-effective alternative to expensive cast iron, stainless steel or concrete bollards.
The Architectural Bollard Cover fits over 6" diameter pipes. We do offer inserts to fit over smaller pipe sizes in order for the bollard cover to fit secure. Check out our sizing guide to ensure the proper fit.
The only information we need from you is the size of your 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.
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.
Our Architectural 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.
“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.”

“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!”

“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
