Preventing Post Decay
Advanced Post Solutions, LLC evolved from a Pennsylvania based provider of wood industry products for contractors and retail consumers. With a focus on bringing innovative value-added products like the All-in-One Green PostTMto the marketplace, Advanced Post Solutions, LLC emerged as a supplier of the TM. Green PostTM is a product uniquely designed with uplift restraint notches and a polyethylene boot to protect from uplift and rot/decay. Green PostTM is a patented invention proven by scientific testing to eliminate ground contact decay and significantly increase the service life of in-ground posts.
The Green PostTM is the ideal value-added complement for products provided by commercial contractors and the pole-building industry.
Here's how Green PostTM works. The product is composed of two layers - an inner layer of melted bitumen which adheres to the wood posts, and an outer layer of tough UV stabilized polyethylene wrap which is heat shrunk to the bitumen under-layer. The product covers the ground contact area to protect wood post applications from rot/decay while the patented uplift restraint notches provide uplift resistance. The Green PostTM also provides an option where the post is supplied wrapped on both ends and sawed in half for two posts. This is good for shorter post applications like decks and mailbox posts. This product is also good for applications where chemical migration from the post is a concern.
Advanced Post Solutions now also offers the Postsaver® Sleeve and PolesaverTM Sleeve. There are many cost sensitive applications within the fence, vineyard, agricultural, signs, decks and mailbox post markets where the use of the Postsaver® Sleeve may be the best choice while the PolesaverTM Sleeve is unmatched for protecting utility poles and light poles from decay at the ground line zone where deterioration occurs. Tests show that the Postsaver® Sleeve and PolesaverTM Sleeve offer many years of additional service life and that's why they're backed by guarantees.
