The Ultimate Utility Pole Protection Solution

Polesaver Sleeves: The Ultimate Pole Protection Solution

In the world of utility infrastructure, reliability is everything. Every component plays a crucial role in ensuring uninterrupted service to communities and businesses. When it comes to wooden utility poles, protecting them against decay and deterioration is paramount. While traditional preservatives offer a desired service life, they don’t guarantee long-term protection. That’s where Polesaver steps in with their innovative, patented ground line barrier sleeve which is effective, reliable and guaranteed to maintain a barrier to the causes of decay.

About Copper in Oil

Copper in Oil preservatives are superior to water-based copper alternatives and contain potent antimicrobial properties that protect against decay. The service life of treated poles however varies on the conditions they are exposed to, with excessive heat and moisture impacting the effectiveness of the preservative over time. Periodic preservative reapplication may be necessary to maintain optimal protection over time, and regulatory compliance is necessary to ensure safe handling and application. Against ever changing legislation however, these are the best preservatives on the market and offer a substantial desired service life for utility infrastructure.
