Questions


Our Decorative Bollards Covers are made to fit over 6’’ pipe or 10’’ pipe. We have four styles that fit over 6’’ pipe and three styles that fit over 10’’. We do offer inserts to fit over smaller pipe sizes in order for the bollard cover to fit secure.
The only information we need from you is the size of your pipe you want to cover. When you receive your material, the insert is inside of the bollard cover. All you have to do is slide your deco cover over your steel pipe.
Measure the circumference (distance around the post) Take that dimension and divide it by pi (3.14) Example: Circumference is 21’’. Divide by 3.14. Pipe size in 6.625’’ The bollard cover size you need is 6’’
Pipe is measured by inside diameter. For example, 6” pipe has an outside diameter of 6 5/8”. Our bollard sizes coincide with the pipe’s outside diameter, ex. our 6” cover has an inside diameter of about 6 7/8” to fit over the 6 5/8” outside diameter of a 6” pipe.
Each bollard cover is delivered with two pieces of our patented foam neoprene tape. Apply the neoprene tape around the circumference of the steel bollard 3″ down from the top of the post and 3″ up from the bottom of the post. Once the tape is applied, slide the bollard cover over, eliciting the sound of air squeezing out between the post and sleeve as it creates a vacuum seal. If the above directions are followed correctly, the Ideal Shield Bollard Cover should fit tight with no gaps.
Decorative Bollard Covers are available in any color to match corporate branding or architecture.
All we need is a Pantone color number. We have done Custom Colors for Fortune 500 companies with great results.
Lead time will depend on if we have matched the color before. We have over 300 color matches in inventory. Lead time is 2-3 weeks if matched and 4-6 weeks if it’s a custom match.

What our customers are saying

“First and foremost, we have loved the 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

“Steris Pharmaceutical chose Ideal Shield handrail because it’s sturdy, and the mounting brackets worked really well. Very happy with the product.”

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

“Ideal Shield has helped me out of many issues over the last couple of years. The restaurant business is always under a sense of urgency. It’s refreshing when someone drops everything & goes the extra mile to help. That is VERY rare this day & age.”
