The problem with timber posts now compared to 50 years ago is that there were only so many old gums about. The trees that are currently getting cut for posts are younger and will not last as long. Not only that — Even though the quality continues to decline, suitable trees are getting scarcer and prices are rising. We believe this is a developing problem that will eventually lead to timber posts being substituted with alternate products.
It’s still early days, but in response to this looming threat, we are developing a steel substitute design. It will be roll formed from 1.5mm HR Steel and Hot Dip Galvanized in a unique “W” profile.
Pictures and prices as soon as we have gone through our trials and testing. ETA Late 2018 / Early 2019
