Business owners often overlook the bollards on their property. For those of you that do not know what a bollard is; a bollard is a sturdy, short, vertical post that is used to control and direct traffic, protect properties, and prevent cars from ramming into things for security measures. They’re normally present in most commercial areas as well as public places.
Bollards are a critical part of protecting your parking lot or property. They act as a guard that prevents vehicles from hitting walls, curbs, doors, or any other parts of your property. They’re just like bumpers for your property! Think of them as your first line of defense when preventing damage from occurring in an accident.
Although they’re effective in preventing damage from occurring, they’re not the most aesthetically pleasing thing in the world. Is there anything more boring looking than a plain concrete cylinder?
To help you spruce up the look of your parking lot and property, EverLine can install a variety of different bollard covers to spruce up the look of your bollards and property as a whole. Why settle for a boring-looking property or parking lot when there are ways to make it look better!?

Crazy Bollard Covers
Hydraulic Retractable Bollards
Hydraulic Retractable Bollards
These retractable hydraulic bollards give your property some great additional functionality. If you’re in need of bollards for security purposes, these are hands down one of the best solutions available. Thanks to utilizing a hydraulic system underneath, they’re able to be retracted and raised at the flip of a switch. This means your property is protected when they’re raised, and it is accessible when they are lowered.
If you ever need to move vehicles or large objects in and out of an area while keeping it secure, these are a great way to do that. The only downside to these bollards is the cost. Given that they are hydraulic and would require hydraulic lines to be installed underground, they would be quite expensive to install on your property.
Shark Fin Bollards
Who said that bollards need to be a cylinder? This is the kind of creativity we like to see. Whoever made these crazy bollards was definitely thinking outside of the box.
Although this may not be the most cost-effective way to protect your property, they sure make it stand out! How often do you see shark fins sticking out of the ground? If you really want, the sky’s the limit when it comes to bollard design and style. If you have an aquatic business, or something else shark-related, this would be a great style of bollard to have on your property.
Cigar Bollard Covers
We thought this was a cool concept for a bollard cover. This is a plastic bollard sleeve that has been made to look like a cigar in front of a cigar shop. This bollard cover is a good example of how your parking lot can be customized to reflect your business! Almost anything can be wrapped or printed on a plastic bollard cover. If you sell a product in a similar shape, it can be done!
This one gave us a good laugh! This bollard is in London and has been shaped to look like a policeman standing in front of a nursery. We think more people should get creative and make interesting bollards like this. If you see something like this, it is very likely that you will stop to take a picture so you can show your friends. Chances are, you will even take a look at the business that has the bollard in front. Use your creativity! Cool and crazy looking bollards are a great way to grab attention.
