Ground line rot and decay in the upper 150mm or 6” of the ground is the number one cause of Fence & Gate posts pole failure. Proven Postsaver sleeves make conventional ground line rot and decay in your fence or gate posts impossible by excluding all the causes of decay.
What is Postsaver?
A Postsaver sleeve is a heat shrinkable thermoplastic sleeve lined with a meltable thermoplastic bituminous liner. Postsaver is heat applied to the post to create a long-lasting air and water tight seal on the ground line section of fence and gate posts making conventional ground line decay impossible and unlike liquid coatings Postsaver maintains a barrier to the causes of decay when the post cracks or splits. The sleeve is applied to the post prior to installation.
Did you know that typically 1 gram of topsoil contains between 100 million and 3 billion living organisms?
Your poles are part of their diet. Believe it or not you are actually feeding them. Many of these organisms consume organic matter such as twigs, leaves and wood, but they also attack posts and poles that you put in the ground to support cables and wires.
How Do I Apply Sleeves?
- Position the sleeve on the post in the correct position
- Heat with a gas blowtorch to shrink in place
- Roll the sleeve on each side(square posts only)
- For high volume application we offer our Pro-Mill machine (up to 500 posts per hour)
What Do I Need to Apply Them?
- Gas blow torch – from just £9.98
- Roller Kit – from just £2.02 (square posts only)
How Do I Install Sleeved Posts?
Just like you would do normally. You can power drive, dig and backfill or concrete in place without problems.
