Shield Spotlight: The Versatility of the Bollard Cover

At Ideal Shield, we manufacture and sell the industry’s most trusted products. From our original bollard covers and portable sign bases to our patented steel & plastic guardrail and handrail, customers all over the United States purchase these products to secure and improve their facilities. However, not everyone uses our products as they were originally intended to be used, especially our bollard covers. 

While most use our bollard covers to cut down on maintenance and paint costs, and improve both protection and aesthetics of their facilities, we’ve had several customers use our bumper post sleeves for much more than that.
