Pro-Sleeves - their most successful Postsaver product

"People really are looking for a solution to longevity of timber posts, and with their proven track record they can believe in Postsaver. This doesn't mean they are an easy sell, there are still a few stuck in their ways [for instance] '...it's ok I'll put a carrier bag on the end.' We do our best to educate wherever we can."

Top Tips from ALS Trading Ltd

Smooth, consistent movement is the key, while passing the flame a few inches past each end of the sleeve or wrap, to get an even finish to the top and bottom.

A measuring stick is a must, if applying repeat volumes, to save fumbling for the tape measure repeatedly.

Postsaver Application Training

Correct application of a rot protector is essential for a valid Postsaver guarantee. To help our trade customers achieve this, we offer Application Training for any stockist or installer planning to apply and install Postsaver. For advice or additional training from Postsaver, please contact Claire who will be happy to answer any questions.

To help you help you effectively and efficiently apply Postsaver rot protectors, we created a range of useful Postsaver application videos. Tony clearly demonstrates and explains the application process from start to finish for all rot protector products. This includes sleeves, wraps, Wrap & Tack and garden sleepers. Use the perfect application image below as a checklist to ensure your application will meet our guarantee requirements.
