Recently Ideal Shield helped a hospital emergency room solve its traffic flow problems. ER visitors and patients could not easily see where they were supposed to park and where emergency vehicles took precedence and were creating flow problems in the parking lot.
Ideal Shield recommended the pyramid sign base in blue and red to increase signage visibility and make sure patrons could easily identify where they were supposed to park. U-Channel covers were installed on all signs where existing u-channel has been utilized to give the parking lot a consistent look and keep all parking spots clearly marked.
Since the sign bases were installed the parking problem has all but disappeared and the hospital couldn’t be happier with the results.
Sky Harbor International Airport was experiencing problems with the epoxy signs kept falling over when hit by vehicles while parking. They are unable to bolt down signs into garage floor due to parking garage safety codes.
Ideal Shield sign bases offered Sky Harbor the perfect solution. Sign bases do not need to bolted to the floor in order to be stable. When filled with water, sand or concrete sign bases will not tip over and will not move if bumped into, making them great for areas where they cannot be bolted down.
Sky Harbor uses Ideal Shield sign bases on all levels of their parking structures and no longer have an issue with them breaking.

One of our customers was having trouble with delivery truck running into poles and causing significant damage to 18 wheelers. The customer needed a way to make their poles easily visible to truck drivers backing up to avoid further damage.
Ideal Shield helped devise a solution that included using several sleeves stacked on top of each other to give them the necessary height to be visible by drivers. Now deliveries are made safely without damage to trucks or anything else near the docks.
Cost savings is among the biggest focuses of every facility and Ideal Shield is committed to helping our customers save money and reduce maintenance.
One of our customers came to us trying to find cost savings in their bollards. They were buying 6″ pipe, primed, then painting it. The facility had nine bollards. They believed that bumper post sleeves would be too expensive but once we discussed it and wrote up a quote for the steel pipe and the covers we were able to show them a cost savings of $15 per bollard which saved them $135 overall. Using Ideal Shield bumper post sleeves the customer never has to worry about maintenance again, eliminating the cost of painting every year.
