6 in. x 6 in. x 60 in. Post Protector (Case of 6-Pieces)

Post Protector is a slide-on barrier system protecting in-ground posts from decay by eliminating soil-to-wood or concrete-to-wood contact. Decay occurs when the following conditions exist: Moisture saturation of wood fiber, Oxygen, Temperature 40 -100 degrees Fahrenheit. These conditions enable the soil dwelling micro-organisms, to colonize the post using the wood fiber as their food source. This consumption of the wood fiber is otherwise known as decay or rot. Post Protector allows for typical post-in-ground foundations without the decay causing micro-organisms ever having access to the post. The treatment in a pressure treated post is a pesticide used in an effort to make the wood fiber an undesirable food source for these micro-organisms. The treatment is effective initially but loses its effectiveness as the chemical migrates or leaches from the post over time. Post Protector eliminates this chemical migration and keeps the treatment with the post where it belongs. Common applications are decks, pergolas, fences, pole barns, or any post-in-the-ground project. Available in 4x4, 4x6 & 6x6 in 42 in. and 60 in. lengths.

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.
Pros: Multi Use, Easy to Install, Light Weight

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.
Pros: Easy to Install, Seals Well, Light Weight

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.
