Post Covers

Protect Your Posts

Ideal Shield’s U-Channel Post Cover is a plastic sleeve that perfectly slides over U-Channel posts to shelter your channel post, covering ugly rusting or markings, and eliminating the need to constantly fix or substitute the post. 

Our U-Channel Covers are made of HDPE plastic and are easy to install by snapping over the existing u-channel with our locking device. This product will not fade, peel or crack, significantly reducing damage to your signposts while maintaining a fresh look as the covers can withstand harsh climate conditions as it is fashioned using weather-resistant plastic. 

For an eye-catching look, our product implements white strips to increase visibility, creating a fresh clean look to enhance the appearance of your signpost.

The U-Channel Cover fits over a standard 2-pound u-channel and a 1-1/2″ pipe.

Available in our standard colors (Blue and White, Red and White, Green and White, solid Galvalume, or solid Black), customers can also request custom colors for the product. Ideal Shield offers a clean, precisely machined product to ensure your sign system looks professional and inviting.

Don’t settle for the alternative. Ideal Shield has you covered!

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
