Dock pilings are the only support structures keeping you dry and provide security on your dock. They are expensive and cumbersome to replace, so it’s important to preserve their lifespan as long as possible. Pier Protector is necessary to counteract disrepair in wooden pilings as they suffer from elemental wear and the presence of waterborne, boring organisms that dig into the wood. If not dealt with, dock pilings will continue to erode until they collapse.
Our system targets the 4 most impacted zones. The Atmospheric, Splash, Tidal, and Submerged are highly susceptible to damage by the elements & woodborers. These are the zones that can create unstable docks.
Primarily focusing on the highest damage zones makes installation easier, freeing you from having to rent heavy machinery needed to complete service below the high damage zones, which only accounts for 25% of the dock piling and is free from many of deficiencies seen in the exposed areas.
This durable, yet cost effective system can be used with multiple timber piling styles, round and square. It can also work for new or existing installations and can be installed in any temperature or environment. Pier Protector is easy to install with simple instructions to guide you every step of the way. The combination of shrink-wrap with the impervious outer surface will destroy any organism that may have already infested the piling, preventing the woodborers from reaching the wood surface and will eliminate the infestation in the future.
The end product keeps your pilings protected from elements while also giving a streamlined design that will continue to look sleek for decades after installation.
