Now that I’ve taken a gander at ArmorKraft Decorative Post Sleeves, I’d like to bestow their maker, Eagle Manufacturing, with an honorary new motto: “We Make Crudely Functional Bollard Posts Look Gooooooooood.” Seriously, though – while bollard posts and vertical wooden railroad tie-style stakes may be extremely useful in keeping vehicles from going where they’re not wanted, they don’t look too hot. As a matter of fact, they’re pretty much blots on the landscape. And no one likes that.
Luckily, ArmorKraft Post Sleeves give you a way to keep the traffic-controlling benefits of bollard posts without having to endure the sight of their ugly mugs. As a matter of fact, these sleeves can actually transform raw posts into things of beauty and sophistication. Just slip one over your bollard post, and suddenly you have a structure worthy of, say, a West London park or a country club. It’s like sending your bollard posts to finishing school.
ArmorKraft Post Sleeves have the look of high-end cast iron, but fortunately aren’t bogged down by cast iron’s hefty weight and price tag. Since they’re made of super lightweight HDPE, the post sleeves weigh in at only 8 pounds each, are resistant to chemicals, UV rays and, of course, water, and are more or less maintenance -free. And they’re available in several different designs to suit your taste and setting. There’s Classic, which is perfect for lending a park or garden-like feel to your property; Golf Traditions, which is great for roping off walkways at country clubs and golf courses; and Equestrian, which adds extra ambiance at stables and other horse-centric facilities.
