Item Information

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.

  • Simple slide-on installation
  • Perfect for both Pro and DIY
  • Speed, affordability, 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
