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.

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
