Don't scrape, prime and paint! Maintenance free bollard covers are the answer. The Standard (1/8” wall thickness) 4" bollard cover is 5" inside diameter, so it fits posts from 4" to 4.75" O.D. up to 60" tall. The Standard (1/8" wall thickness) 6" bollard cover is 7" inside diameter, so it fits posts from 6" to 6.75" O.D. up to 60" tall.
Standard heights are 52" or 60", but you can order cut to length, no charge. There is approximately 3.5" - 4" headroom to accommodate the dome, so, for example, a 52" is approximately 56" tall. Select one of the 10 colors, or ask about custom colors.
If you would like them cut shorter, specify the actual height of your post. The cover comes with 2 strips of double sided tape that you put on the post, then slide the cover over and stick it to the tape.
The bollard covers are made from Polyethylene Thermoplastic (HDPE) having ultra-violet resistance and anti-static properties. Nominal wall thickness is 0.125 inches.
Lead time to ship is normally about one week from the date of the order.
