Frequently Asked Questions

Bollard Covers

What is the purpose of the reflective tape on the sleeves?

The reflective tape actually increases the visibility of the sleeves. During the day the reflective tape offers a color contrast increasing the visibility. At night the increased visibility comes from the tape being reflective.

Will I need to purchase any installation material?

No. We send all of the needed installation material, so no additional tools are needed.

Why should someone buy a bollard cover?

Bollard covers eliminate the need to scrape and paint the existing pipe bollards. When you paint a post, and it gets scraped, it looks ugly until the next time that you paint the post. Scraping and painting a bollard usually costs about $15.00 to $25.00 to paint each time.
