The Premier Coated Timber Posts
WoodShield offers a product which is the most versatile and complete oyster post, rail and joiner system without the requirement of onsite assembly. In addition to the elements such as moisture and sun exposure, oyster farmers have the added problem of marine borers.
WoodShield posts are ideal in marine, tropical or wet environments, since plastic is inert in seawater and they are not susceptible to marine borers, salt, water, or barnacles. WoodShield posts have the strength and rigidity of other timber posts combined with the protective properties and toughness of polyurethane plastic. They are flexible enough to be break resistant if hit by barges or boats and sturdy enough to survive strong tides currents and storms.
More recently traditional timber preservation products such as CCA treated timber or tar have been identified as potentially harmful to the environment and in some cases have been banned or phased out. WoodShield provides an environmentally friendly timber post that is non-toxic, with no adverse leaching of chemicals and no ‘end of life’ disposal concerns.
