Ideal Shield Steel Insert Bollard Cover Installation Process - Banner


Fit Any Bollard Cover Over Any Size Pipe

Pipe too small for the Bollard Cover you want? Don’t worry because Ideal Shield makes specially designed Steel Sizing Inserts to go over your current bollard or pipe to ensure a comfortable fit for your new Bollard Covers. 

Made from U.S. Steel plates and rebar, the Steel Insert is designed to fill the gap between your larger bollard cover and the smaller pipe you may be trying to set it over, allowing for the appearance of a larger pipe without the expense of a new bollard.

As the Original Bollard Cover company, we offer more Bollard Cover styles and sizes than anyone on the market. That means we’ve seen it all when it comes to pipe sizes and fits. 

Adding a Steel Sizing Insert will help make that 6″ Bollard Cover fit perfectly over a 4″ pipe. Or give off a stronger, more secure look by adding a 10″ Bollard Cover over your 6″ storefront bollards. 

Standard Size Options

4″ Pipe to fit 6″, 8″, or 10″ Cover

6″ Pipe to fit 8″ or 10″ Cover

8″ Pipe to fit 10″ Cover

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

“This is just what we were looking for. Well made. We will be installing it next week. Everyone here is excited to have a railing to hang onto with winter coming. We at St. Cyprian thank you and your facility for help us.”

Carl Baltosiewich w/St. Cyprian

Kevin Korb - Rite Hite

“When compared to other railing systems, Ideal Shield’s anchor system is cost-efficient and super strong – plus fully removable for relocation. Ideal Shield offers quality products that are very durable and never require painting.”

Donnie Frederick - Odessa College

Kari Carper - BDH Contracting
