SECURE SET POST SETTING FOAM

The easiest way to install posts and poles of any type – no heavy concrete bags, no water. 

SECURE SET FOAM - The ideal solution for many DIY projects

Secure Set is the back-saving concrete alternative

SS vs Concrete

To install 20 fence posts in holes measuring 8″ x 24″ you would need 40 bags of concrete weighing 3,200 pounds.  Compare that to just 4 gallons of Secure Set. 

Your back will thank you.

Whether you are a homeowner or a contractor, if you need to install a single post or hundreds of posts, there is no better way than with Secure Set.  

Secure Set not only gets the job done fast, it eliminates the back breaking effort of hauling and mixing very heavy bags of concrete. 

NO WHEELBARROW | NO WATER NEEDED

Secure Set is the highest density polyurethane foam available and higher density translates to higher stability ensuring that what you put in the ground stays upright and in place. 

Moreover, the foam creates a solid bond with the pole and soil, resulting in enhanced foundation strength while also protecting the pole against water, groundline rot or oxidation, all things concrete can’t provide. 

Secure Set Util Industry

Secure Set is the leading high-density closed cell expanding foam used to set and straighten posts.
