Product Overview

For 18-years, Post Protector has provided simple, slide-on barrier protection for in-ground posts. It works in conjunction with the chemical preservative as an important additional layer of protection against soil-dwelling and atmospheric decay fungi and insect infestation. Its first important to understand decay. Many believe that moisture CAUSES decay. Moisture is not the cause of decay but is 1 of 3 conditions needed for decay to occur. The conditions: 1 Moisture, 2 Oxygen and 3 Suitable temperature. These conditions enable the soil-dwelling or atmospheric decay fungi, as well as termites and other subterranean insects, to feed on the wood fiber. So the Decay/Degradation of ground-contact wood is not CAUSED by moisture but by the action of wood destroying organisms feeding on the wood. The chemical preservatives protection strategy is to poison the wood fiber, rendering it an unsuitable food source for the wood destroying organisms. The downside to that approach is that all chemical preservatives eventually lose resistance to decay and insect infestation. Post Protector becomes the perfect complement to the pressure treated (or cedar) post by simply providing a physical barrier isolating the post so the wood-destroying organisms have NO access to the post.

Great product
I just built a 32x44 pole building and was not comfortable with treated wood being buried and in direct contact with ground. These gave me the peice of mind to bury and hopefully prevent rotting. Very easy to install and work with

Great piece of gear. Easy to use and I think it’s going to be very effective long term. Would be a 5 star but it’s overpriced.

At the moment they look great and should do the job. Guess I'll know for sure in 30 years or so.
