They are building materials that are made from recycled waste plastic. They do not rot, are not affected by termites, mould or algae and hence are very durable.

The posts range in size from 3 to 6 inch cross-section (square or round). The 3 and 4 inch cross-section posts are only available in lengths of up to a maximum of 10 ft. The 5 and 6 inch cross-section posts are available in lengths of up to 18 ft long. We also make planks that are 1.5’’ by 5.5’’ cross-section. These are available in lengths of up to 6 ft.

Aging tests estimate that recycled plastic posts will last at least 50 years with minimal degradation. Overall, they outlast timber in application.

What tools do I need to work with Ecopost®?

Use the same wood-working tools… nothing special. The poles can be cut, nailed and drilled just as easily as timber. Please read our comprehensive installation guide for details.

In fencing applications, we recommend the 1 inch long (2.5 cm) u-nails from Devki Steel. Pre-drilling is not required as the u-nail will easily be driven into the plastic post using a hammer.

If you are using screws, pre-drilling will be ideal though not essential. Remember not to tighten the screw down to allow for expansion or contraction.

On average plastic poles hold nails and screws better than wood.

Use our online calculator to estimate the number of posts, length of barbed wire, chain link and kilos of u-nails you need for your land. Please read our comprehensive installation guide for a summary.
Ecopost are currently only available in black/grey colour. We can however paint the posts to your preferred colour.
No. While Ecopost® is tough and durable, it does not have the same stiffness as wood. Therefore, it is not intended for use in load-bearing applications.Special applications/loading conditions will first require engineering analysis. Kindly consult us for more details.
Yes. However it is recommended that you use an undercoat first as paint will not adhere well to the plastic.
