ABOUT THE 5″ SCH 80

5-inch Schedule 80 Steel Pipe Bollards have a 3/8″ thick wall and are a sometimes a decent alternative to the larger, but thinner walled 6″ Schedule 40 pipe. Both pipes are similar in weight and strength and may achieve similar stopping capability if an oversized 18″ diameter footing is used for the 5-inch, similar to the 6-inch pier footing size. At 166 lbs for an 8-footer, they can usually be set into place with a couple workers by hand. To save your back and avoid injury, one can always use some mechanical help from a skid loader, excavator or gantry hoist.

To maximize stiffness of any bollard pipe, add a couple vertical sticks of rebar into bollard when filling with concrete.

IS 5″ AN ODD SIZE?

If you have concerns that 5-inch is an odd size to find bollard covers for, don’t worry unless you want decorative bollard covers. We have 1/4″ thick 5″ dome top covers. If you want something decorative, you would have to use a 6″ bollard cover with a steel insert that is available. But, if the point of using 5″ over 6″ was to save money, but you want a decorative covered look, then we advise that you use the 6-inch Schedule 40 Pipe because that will be cheaper than the 5-inch pipe plus steel insert.

GENERAL APPLICATIONS: The 5″ SCH 80 Pipe might be used to protect:

  • Pedestrians where ever vehicles are present.
  • Signs where if plowed down, could cause minor or fatal accidents
  • Utilities such as fire hydrants, gas and propane tanks and electrical service boxes.

AS A BARRICADE: As a barricade, like at a building entrance, it is advisable to use a more standard pipe, like the 6-inch Schedule 40. And or more certainty in a barrier’s stopping force, it is advised to use an impact-rated bollard system such as the C40, K4 or K12.

VARIETIES: ASTM A500 Carbon Steel Pipe is the common go-to choice for bollards. Although, it is sometimes sufficient to use a structural grade untested pipe. Of course, we also offer pipe that meets various prescribed ASTM and ASME standards. See “Pipe Varieties” below.

PIPE VARIETIES

This Pipe may be available in the following types and grades:

Electric resistance weld (ERW), seamless (SMLS), and double submerged arc weld (DSAW) in all published schedules and walls, Grades ASTM A-500 GR A & GR B, ASTM A-53 GR B, ASME SA-53 GR B, ASTM A-106 GR B, ASME SA-106 GR B, AP1 5L X-GRADES, ASTM A-252 GR 1, 2, AND 3, ASTM A-139 GR B, and ASTM A-501.

UNTESTED PIPE VARIANT

This pipe may also be available as untested pipe without an ASTM rating. It is then referred to by Diameter and Wall Thickness only; no Schedule #, Standard, XH or XXH etc. Untested pipe can be much cheaper, and is often perfectly fine for bollard applications since the testing is really about pressure testing; how much PSI the pipe can withstand when filled with a pressurized liquid or gas. Bollards are just filled with concrete, so PSI ratings are generally not applicable. Their may be a small or negligable weakness in terms of bollard strength associated with untested pipe.

MORE PIPE SIZES AND THICKNESSES

See bottom of page for all of our pipe sizes and wall thicknesses. We offer 1/8" to 36" Diameters and walls from SCH 5 to SCH 160 XH Extra Heavy and XXH Double Extra Heavy.

Alert: Galvanized does not hold paint worth a darn because it's acts like a non-stick frying pan, so don't choose galvanized if you are hoping to paint pipe. Leave galvanized be, or cover it with a bollard cover, don't paint it!
Structural ASTM A500 Grade A is often typical. Untested and Rejected pipe doesn't necessarily meet fluid pressure tests, but is usually OK for bollard applications that aren't critical.

Unloading at Shipping Destination *
You must have a way to receive delivery. Trucks don't usually come with a fork and pipe has to be forked from the side of truck. Smaller pipe under 150 lbs can be offloaded by hand, but the driver may not be happy about it. Note: "Forks" is short for forklift, Lull, Track Loader with forks, Skid Steer with forks etc.
