    Overview

    Model # 4442C12 Store SKU # 1000749661

    Post Protector is a slide-on barrier system protecting in-ground posts from decay by eliminating soil-to-wood or concrete-to-wood contact. 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 fibre 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, to name a few.

We don't worry about in-ground termites but we do have to protect from water caused rot from surface on down. I use Post Protectors along with 8-10" Cylindrical concrete forms. Don't forget to drill drain holes and pour some gravel before the concrete!

The included fasteners were a mess though. Several washers were missing, about 10, and a couple lag screws were missing. I had to put just 3 screws with washers in most of my 16 posts.

Suggestion to an end user : when installing this quality product , temporarily wrap a piece duct tape around the post /protector interface to keep drain rock and concrete from the space between the post and the protector.
