Frequently Asked

Ideal Shield’s clearance bar’s standard sizes include 5 ¼” outside diameter and 78” length, 5 ¼” outside diameter and 110” length and 7 ¼” outside diameter and 110”, however, custom sizes are available.
Yes, currently Ideal Shield offers two different types of clearance bars. The classic yellow clearance bar is a solid molded piece. Other colors are (2) pieces twisted together in the center with rivets. The second option will save you money on shipping costs.
Our standard color is yellow, but any color is available upon request.
No, reflective stripes do not come on the clearance bars but we are able to add them at an additional cost. However, Ideal Shield does not endorse or recommend the additional of reflective tape because you are turning a maintenance-free product into a product that requires maintenance as tape will start to peel. Depending on the application, the tape will need to be replaced several times during the life of the clearance bar.

What our customers are saying

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
