Sign Systems

What's Your Sign?

Make the Proper First Impression

Ideal Shield’s Bollard Sign Systems are steel pipe bollard sign post systems that sleeved in a Bollard Cover and fabricated to include a steel signpost. The full sign system is a great alternative to regular steel parking lot signs which require constant paint jobs and repairs. 

The Bollard Sign Systems are maintenance-free systems that utilize a traditional steel post sleeved in an Ideal Shield bollard cover and a 1-1/4” steel pipe sleeved in plastic, giving you both strength and curbside appeal. 

Have an exact size or installation need? Our Bollard Sign Systems are available in 4″ and 6″ diameter options, as well as either Base Plate or Core-In installation application. 

Our Bollard Sign Systems can be designed to meet your needs. The system can be sleeved in any color Bollard Cover and matched with a steel signpost sleeved in one of nine color options we have available. If you want to take your project a step further, we also offer custom decal graphics for the Bollard Cover to meet your branding needs. 

To set our Sign Systems apart, we utilize precision cutting on our Bollard Covers. The clean, precisely machine cut cover will ensure your sign system looks professional and inviting.

Here at Ideal, We’ve Got You Covered. That means that we can meet your project needs. We can do a complete sign system, retrofit an existing sign, or provide the bollard cover and signpost. Contact us or submit a quote today to learn more.

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
