Pickets are an efficient and cost effective way of installing a fence. One end is sharpened for easy insertion to the ground, the other is flat to take the impact of a hammer. Our Heavy Duty Premium Hot Dipped and Galvanised Pickets have a much longer life than standard pickets, and can withstand corrosion, tough rural conditions and coastal locations. Galvanised Steel Pickets should be used for alkaline soils. These will be a great starting point if you are looking to build with convenience and a smaller budget in mind. With all holes pre-drilled you simply need to plant the posts and thread the wire through. Another option for Pickets is Black Tar coated - these are lighter but just as sturdy. Galvanised Steel should be used for alkaline soils.
A ‘Strainer Post’ is placed at both the beginning and end of a fence - it is a crucial part of any fence construction. This post takes the strain off the fence posts and allows them to stand upright, supported by a diagonal post and often concreted into the ground. With the many types of fences and wires there comes many configurations for strainers.
