Our range of oak fence posts are popular as a premium product because oak is associated with high quality work and traditional construction. It is naturally very durable and does not require a timber treatment before being put into the ground.
For any fence post made of treated timber we recommend that the bottom of the post, which is normally embedded into the ground, is not cut because this will break the treatment seal and reduce the life of the post and invalidate our 15 year guarantee. If it is necessary to cut the fence post, cut the top and not the end that is going into the ground. This end can be re-treated with two coats of end coat preservative.
Another important aspect about installing your fence post is to ensure that the post is dug to the correct depth into the ground and, where necessary, concreted. A typical installation depth for a post supporting an 1.8M high panel or closeboard fence would be approximately 760mm, for lower heights of fencing this depth can be reduced to 600mm, but never less than this, unless the fence is in a sheltered location.
