If a forklift or industrial truck runs into machinery, shelves of inventory or a load-bearing wall in your production facility or warehouse, it could cause serious damage and downtime. The same goes for collisions with pipes, furnaces, boilers, utility meters and electrical boxes. Bollards protect against these types of collisions. Use Eagle yellow bollard covers to catch the attention of drivers and protect your bollards.
All yellow bollard post sleeves meet OSHA 1910.144 color codes for signifying caution or marking physical hazards that cause slips, trips and falls or machinery with pinch points. These bollard sleeves are also suitable for use in the parking lot and on loading docks.
Why use Eagle bollard covers?
Bollard post covers quickly improve property appearance and extend the life of your steel or concrete bollards for minimal costs. Made in the U.S. with American-manufactured HDPE, these long-lasting, all-weather bollard covers are resistant to rusting, cracking, denting or fading.
Unlike our competitors, we only use ½-inch high-density polyethylene to provide the strongest protection. Eagle post covers are nonconductive, chemical resistant, can withstand extreme temperatures (-30ºF to 130ºF) and feature UV inhibitors for fade resistance.
Our post sleeves are easy to install. Simply slide the sleeve over an existing 6-inch standard diameter steel or concrete bollard post that is up to 56 inches tall. Trim to the exact height you need. To clean, wipe down with soap and water.
Opting for 100% recyclable bollard covers rather than going through the effort of yearly maintenance and painting will free up your time and have a positive impact on your budget and the environment.
