Newly developed reinforced concrete Ox Strain Posts are octagonal shaped strainer posts ideal for agricultural fencing. Regardless of ground conditions, Ox Strain Posts provide a durable, strong, maintenance free, fencing solution with a 50 year design.
Crosby Cleland, of Co Down-based Crosby Cleland Fencing & Gates, recently assessed a number of the posts in situ. He commented
“The fact that the new posts are 8ft6 in length should prove popular with both farmers and contractors. Most of the other options on the market at the present time are seven feet only in length. The new posts are also very well designed and made to last.”
“Ground conditions can vary a lot in Northern Ireland, from very mossy sites, through to the highest quality mineral soils. The good news is that the new Ox Strain Posts can be used in all conditions. High quality fencing is important, when it comes to delivering higher levels of grassland management and utilisation. There is a growing demand for new fencing on farms right across Northern Ireland at the present time. The new posts have been launched at exactly the right time.”
David Junkin another local fencing contractor further commented “We are using a significant number of the new strainers at the moment. What I like about them is the fact that they are built to last and they can be put in with a normal post driver. What’s more, the 8-sided design means that the new posts have tremendous grip in the ground. They do not twist when the pressure is applied to get the required tension in the wire.”
