What types of jobs is Fencemate DuraPost U Channel suitable for?
Fencemate DuraPost U Channel is suitable for all the jobs where you might have used concrete or timber posts.
Why does DuraPost come with a continuous run of holes?
The continuous run of holes provided on the DuraPost allows you to fix your fence panel or gravel board from the rear of the post. The holes make it easier to build fences, particularly those built on a slope.
Which types of fencing is DuraPost suitable for?
DuraPost is suitable for virtually all types of timber fencing panels including feather board, hit and miss, European panels and close boarded fencing.
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 using independent professional contractors demonstrated that the time taken to fit fence panels with DuraPost, rather than concrete posts, took only half the time in terms of man-hours. 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 the Fencemate DuraPost U Channel?
DuraPost is made in the UK from galvanised steel with a wide range of contemporary colours. Patented and Registered Design Protected, it is 100% recyclable at end-of-life, giving you a sustainable choice for your fence. Unlike traditional fence posts, DuraPost won’t rot, warp or crack and is maintenance free. That’s why we’re confident to give our product up to a 25-year guarantee.
With a wide range of colours, styles and with matching accessories, you can create a truly unique, long-lasting and stylish garden with DuraPost.
