"Protector" Lengthens Life Of Pole Frame Posts

"Our new Post Protector prevents underground wooden posts used in post frame construction from rotting or being destroyed by insects," says Ken McDonnell, Pottsville, Pa.
  The 5-ft. long poly unit is designed to be used on both pressure-treated and glue-laminated posts. Slip the Post Protector over the post and attach it using stainless steel lag screws and washers at designated locations on the protector. When inserted into the hole, the Protector extends about 1 ft. above the ground.
  The Post Protector has built-in uplift protection ribs. When the post hole is backfilled with concrete, the concrete will grab the ribs and provide uplift protection to ensure the post won't be pulled up by strong winds.
  "Continuous ventilation allows the post to breathe which also helps lengthen its life," notes McDonnell. The product is available in a wide range of sizes to accommodate the most widely used pressure-treated and glue-laminated posts.
