Product Overview

  • In-Ground Post Decay Protection for posts in soil or concrete
  • Simple installation and Post Longevity increased by 250%
  • Pole Barn, Deck, Fence, Pergola, Mailbox, any post-foundation job
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. It’s first important to understand decay. Many believe that moisture CAUSES decay. Moisture is not the cause of decay but is one 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.
  • Simple slide-on installation
  • Perfect for both Pro and DIY
  • Speed, affordability, and strength of a direct burial post while wood destroying organism have no post access
  • HDPE lightweight, flexible and strong; 449 years of in-ground service life
  • Integral uplift protection feature with Uplift protection hardware/installation instruction pack
  • Integral drainage feature
  • Minimizes chemical leaching into the environment
  • Attractive appearance-rich clay tone color with wood grain texture
  • Easily trims to desired height above grade
  • Stronger, faster, and less expensive than concrete pier and steel bracket method
  • Weed-eater protection
  • Fits the typical 6 in. x 6 in. post with the actual dimensions of 5-½ in. x 5-½ in.
  • Can also be used to create a removable in-ground post
  • Toll free tech-line for expert product information/installation assistance
  • Item is a quantity of 6 Post Protector

Doesn't water get in this when it rains, and then has no way to drain out, so your post is sitting in water and rots? Looks like it should have some small holes in the bottom to drain out water?
Asked by: crj
can not remember if the hole was in the side @ the bottom or if we drilled them, but that is the instructions is to drill a small hole and we put white chat rock down so the drain will not get plugged if that makes sense. but yes they will drain & water will not stand in the sleeves. these worked perfect for our applications and think it will keep our poles good for many years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Option to Protect Posts Installed in the Ground I recently built a pole barn and was looking to add more rot and decay protection to the pressure treated posts that were set into the ground. Compared to other options, the Post Protectors are more cost effective and simple to install. Concrete pillars are expensive due to the labor required to install them. A solid buried post is also stronger than the weak joint of a post bolted to the top of the pillar. The various "wrapped" posts on the market are more expensive than the Post Protectors. The sleeves are simple to install. Just slide them on and install the lag bolts to provide uplift protection. If you're having a contractor do the work, just have them slip them on before they set the posts. Quick, simple, and economical.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very good product The builders were very impressed with this product. It handled well -- several of the workers commented on how much they liked it. The contractor said he was going to ask his supplier to start carrying Prodex.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product ive used this product on the last 3 projects on my farm(2 pole buildings and a lean too) and I love these. The first shed I put up doesn't have protectors on it (it was before I found p.p.) and I'm so bummed because I can see the beginning of rot on my poles. I wouldn't put another pole in the ground without post protectors.

These post protectors appear to be a great product for in-ground post applications.Some say they aren't needed but ..My project was an addition. Couldn't believe the deteriorated condition of the 6x6's i removed. After 14 yrs, the posts I removed were eaten up for first 12-15" that were in ground.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wasted Money? My cost for 24 of these "post protectors was $735.15. The walls of the the protector are .03". Thats 1/32 of an inch. The material is stiff but not hard.The bottem is so thin that I could see sun light thru the un drilled plastic. I don't know how these will holdup but I am not impressed. I could puncture the bottem with a dull nail without much force at all. If I had been able to see this product before I purchased I would have never laid down my hard earned money. JMV Louisiana
