What is OctoPost Used For?

Our unique “Octoposts” produced from Swedish Redwood are kiln dried and pressure treated with Tanasote.

The Tanasote Octo posts come with a 25 year guarantee with a life expectancy of 35 – 50 years. The Tanalith E come with a 15 year guarantee. Posts have a unique mark which identifies the year they were produced.

Posts are machined into an octagonal profile providing a flat surface for fixing. Each post is identical making erecting quicker and giving a consistency which is pleasing to the eye

Crucially the same process, timber and treatment, are used in the making of the telegraph poles and the Octopost. The timber grown is PFSC certified which means that the forest is guaranteed to be replanted.

All of the Octo posts are sold through stockists nationwide. Contact your local agri merchant or contact us direct and we can send you further information regarding your area.

The Octopost rails are treated in the exact same way as their posts are. The rail has a half octagonal profile therefore the completed fence is very pleasing to the eye. The rails come in two lengths 3.5m and 4.2m and have an overlapping joint. This makes erecting the fence far simpler as the rail ends do not have to end on the post.
