The Original Post Protector

Plasti-Sleeve Post Cover

Patented in 1994, our plastic post covers are in use in 10,000's of buildings nationwide, Plasti-Sleeve is the proven original for post and column protection. The pole shed has evolved into the modern post frame building and with that customers expect more than a bare chemically treated wooden post to support their investment.  Plasti-Sleeve offers more by completely covering the embedded portion of the post or column with a molded plastic post cover with an enclosed bottom, designed to fit posts cleanly while still allowing ventilation. The clean fit means builders don't have to alter construction methods or worry about fit and finish of other framing members. We have done our "homework" through consultation, research, and construction to develop and refine a product that is simple to use, beneficial to Post Frame Design, and low overall cost!

Plasti-Sleeve - Manufacturer & supplier of innovative Plastic Post Cover components for Post Frame Design.
