DuraPost is a galvanised steel fence post system that provides a strong, secure and easy alternative to wooden and concrete fence posts. DuraPost can be used with any type of fencing, is produced in the UK and is available in a wide range of modern colours. Steel fence posts will provide you with peace of mind - they won’t rot or crack and are easy to maintain.
DuraPost fence posts are secured into the ground and can support wooden fence panels, wire fences and can be used to build on-site fencing. This type of fence post has become increasingly popular as consumers are recognising the many benefits. We firmly believe this is the future of fencing and what’s more, DuraPost comes with a 25 year guarantee.
It’s important that your fence lasts for many years. It would not be practical, logical or financially feasible to be replacing untreated wooden fence posts every couple of years. DuraPost steel fence posts provide a stronger and longer lasting option for your property boundary and will guarantee that a long lasting system is there to support your fence panels for many years to come.
As we mentioned previously, the DuraPost galvanised steel fence posts are expected to last up to 25 years. They are resistant to warping, rotting, splitting, cracking and chipping, and have been wind tested, proven to withstand winds of up to 110mph.
Compared to timber posts that require regular treatments and sealers which take time and money, steel fence posts require very little maintenance if any at all. Once your DuraPost system has been installed, you can pretty much forget about it. It requires no ongoing treatments and will stay as good as new for many many years. DuraPost has a protective, powder coating that is available in a choice of 3 coloured finishes and provides additional durability to the galvanised steel.
It would be easy to assume that steel fence posts are more expensive than wooden or concrete ones, but when you consider all of the materials plus the installation costs there really is very little difference. Steel posts are actually more cost effective in the long run because they require little upkeep. DuraPost is light and easy to install which helps to bring the installation costs down and the fact that they are long lasting means you won’t need to spend additional money on repairs or replacements. DuraPost will last around 3 times longer than timber and there are no hidden costs.
As consumers become increasingly aware of their impact on the environment, they seek sustainable solutions for fencing too and this is where DuraPost comes into its own.
Concrete fence posts often come with a harmful manufacturing process that has a negative impact on the environment and it is not a popular choice for many homeowners. Timber fence posts are often sustainably sourced but the products required to treat them can be very harmful to the wildlife around them. Chemicals such as varnish, that helps to prevent wood from rotting, can contaminate the soil and any surrounding life.
DuraPost is made from steel which is an endlessly recyclable material and can be used over and over again. Due to its low energy manufacturing process (the production of harmful greenhouse gases are kept as low as possible) and guarantee of a long life span, DuraPost has been designed to have a minimal impact on the environment. Being produced and stocked in the UK helps to reduce transportation miles and therefore harmful emissions too. If being environmentally aware is important to you, then DuraPost is the sustainable choice.
