The post can be used for post and rail fencing but is not designed for any type of wire fencing systems.
Is DuraPost really up to twice as quick as concrete to install?
A test was carried out using independent professional contractors. This demonstrated that the time taken to fit fence panels with DuraPost took only half the time in terms of man-hours when compared to concrete posts. One person was able to carry out the tasks normally requiring two people because DuraPost is so much lighter and easier to use than concrete posts.
Does DuraPost really withstand high winds?
Yes. The product underwent independent testing at the Building Research Establishment and proved to withstand wind speeds in excess of 70MPH.
How sustainable is DuraPost?
DuraPost is made from steel which is a sustainable material and can be infinitely recycled.
Step 1: Set your first post into the ground using Rapid Set Fence Post Concrete and check the height. Dig the next hole. You can now position the gravelboard at the correct height and checked for level.
Step 2: Slide your fence panel into the first post and secure with screws. Position your second post, check for alignment and set into the ground.
Step 3: Fix capping rail and post caps if required.
