Best Fence Post Money Can Buy
Backed by a lifetime warranty, DuraPost is guaranteed not to rot, rust, decay, split or be damaged by insects as long as it's in the ground. "You can drive staples into the post which, for electric fence, is self-insulating," says Mike Harris, sales manager. "Staples hold better than in wood and rarely pull out, even in wet, freezing weather. Because DuraPost flexes above the ground, it won't work its way loose like a steel or wood post. This eliminates labor and money spent on fence maintenance.
"When an animal pushes against a Durapost, it flexes and then automatically straightens itself. Because of its flexible strength, DuraPost isn't recommended for use as a corner post or brace post. In freezing weather, it becomes less flexible and more rigid, but it's still very difficult to break, Harris points out.
Comparable in price to similar length wood or steel posts, heavyweight DuraPosts (2-1/ 4 in. dia.) are available in 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10ft. lengths. DuraPosts are also available in medium weight (1-3/4 in. dia.) and light weight (1-3/8 in. dia.) sizes.
