The stylish, durable fence post system
How long your fence posts will last is an important factor to consider when installing a fence. The cost to repair or replace a rotten wooden or cracked concrete fence post over the lifetime of your fence will result in higher costs overall that investing in a durable product from the start.
DuraPost is stronger than both concrete and timber fence posts and is guaranteed to last up to 25 years. Made from galvanised steel, DuraPost doesn't rot, split, warp, crack or chip and can even withstand winds of up to 110mph!
DuraPost®: Stronger than concrete
The revolutionary fence post system
With DuraPost you have peace of mind that it will last with a guarantee of up to 25 years on the powder coated option whereas it is well known that timber posts will often rot through in just a few years in damp conditions and concrete posts will chip, crack and even snap as they are corroded by the elements.
So, what are Durapost® steel fencing posts?
Traditionally, fence posts have been made from either concrete or timber. Now a new type of fencing posts made from steel is available as an alternative, providing lots of extra benefits :
• Durability - 25 year guarantee
• Strength - withstands winds up to 110mph
• Versatility - works with panel, closeboard or post and rail fencing
• Ease of installation - 20% of the weight of concrete posts
• Contemporary finish - plain steel or colour powder coated options
DuraPost® is a complete fencing system made up of steel fence posts and caps, corner posts, gravel boards and capping rails that can be used with both prefabricated fence panels and close board fencing with Arris, Cant or 3x2 rails.
It's available in two different heights to support a 1.8m panel or larger, the posts can accommodate a panel thickness of up to 48mm.
Unfinished galvanised steel fence posts give a contemporary, in-line look when placed alongside timber fencing, however it is also available in a range of three coloured powder-coated finishes.
How strong are they?
The main advantages of steel fencing posts over concrete or timber are their strength and durability. DuraPost® is manufactured in the UK from galvanised steel which has been cold-rolled, giving it incredible strength - in laboratory tests the steel posts can withstand winds of 110mph.
It is also incredibly durable. A typical wooden fence post (even if pressure treated) may have a lifespan of 10 years, whereas DuraPost® will not weather or rust and has a 25 year guarantee, built to last even longer than that.
