Plasti-Sleeve Post Protection

First on the market by many years, Plasti-Sleeve literally created the foundation alternative category for post-frame construction. The clean fitting, easy-to-use, slide-on Post Protection sleeves provide the economical protection that many post-frame customers now expect. Quality black polyethylene plastic, more than 20 specialized sizes, and great pricing make Plasti-Sleeve a smart choice for post protection. Market leadership has continued with Short-Sleeve, for economical grade-level post protection, and Plasti-Skirt, an easy-to-use plastic skirt board protector.

Dr!pStop is the absolute BEST WAY to handle condensation in uninsulated metal buildings; it fights condensation without insulation. Specially designed air pockets store condensation and hold it overnight, then it evaporates back into the air as humidity. Since Dr!pStop arrives on the jobsite already installed, it is not only safer, but it saves the time and labor costs of installing insulation. It also protects the steel by adding another layer of protection from the corrosive elements found in livestock confinement.
