Frequently Asked Questions

What’s a bollard?

Aside from marine docking cleats and decorative lighting fixtures, bollards are any type of post installed for traffic control. They can be wood, reinforced concrete, decorative cast iron, retractable, or good old schedule 40 steel pipe. Bollards are specified in construction drawings and referred to as bumper posts, guard posts, steel pipe bollards, surface mount pipe bollards, dig and set pipe bollards, etc. Bollard covers are specified as bumper post sleeves, bollard covers, bollard sleeves, and so on.

What size Bollard Cover will fit my bumper guard post?

Measure the outside diameter of the steel pipe straight across the top, from edge to edge. Be sure to measure the biggest possible dimension. Standard bollard pipes are installed in the following sizes:

4” nominal, schedule 40, outside diameter = 4.500”. If you measure the circumference (around) the pipe it will be about 14”. You need a 4” cover. This will also work for 3” and 3.5” pipe although these are uncommon sizes for pipe bollards.

6” nominal, schedule 40, outside diameter = 6.625”. Circumference will be about 21”. You need a 7” cover.

8” nominal, schedule 40, outside diameter = 8.625”. Circumference will be about 27”. You need an 8” cover.
