Light it up

Accent Your Outdoor Pathway

Ideal Shield’s Lighted Bollard Covers are environmentally friendly and cost-effective solutions for outdoor applications to help illuminate walkways. 

We’ve created two attractive designs to meet your needs: Solar Lighted and Hardwired LED Lighted.


Available in any color, these long-lasting Lighted Bollard Covers do not require painting or any other maintenance efforts. Forget the hassle, add these illuminated bumper post sleeves to provide a touch of elegance, while also increasing visibility and vigilance, to any site.

Both our Hardwired and Solar Powered options fit over 6” pipe and are made of 1/4” nominal wall thickness polyethylene thermoplastic (LDPE).

Besides the installation process, the difference between the two options is the light casing as the Hardwired features a dome top with frosted light glass while the Solar powered option features a flat top and a clear acrylic light glass. 

Our Lighted Bollard Covers measure up to 58” tall with a max pipe fit of 51″ but can be cut to custom heights at no additional cost.

The Solar Lighted Bollard Covers recharge with rays, even on cloudy days while the Hardwired Lighted Bollard Cover draws 5 watts of power and can be wired in a circuit up to 200 lights.

Like all of our Bollard Covers, the lighted sleeves come with our patented installation tape, ensuring a quick and easy fit.

Our Solar Lighted Bollard Cover requires solar rays which means daylight to charge the cell. That means in either sunlight or in cloudy skies, the bollard will charge. The Hardwired Lighted Bollard Cover draws 5 watts of power 120 volts and requires a professional electrician to install.
Our Lighted Bollards Covers are made to fit over 6’’ pipe. For smaller pipes, we do offer inserts for the bollard cover to fit secure.
The only information we need from you is the size of your pipe you want to cover. When you receive your material, the insert 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. You will apply the neoprene tape around the circumference of the steel bollard 3’’ down from top of post and 3’’ up from bottom of the post. Once the tape is applied, you will slide the bollard cover over and you should hear air squeezing out between the post and sleeve creating a vacuum seal. If the above directions are followed correctly, the Ideal Shield Bollard Cover should fit tight with no gaps.
Decorative Bollard Covers are available in any color to match branding needs.
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.
No, we do not have minimum on Ideal Shield Bollard Covers.

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
