Durapost fencing components offer a modern, secure and strong framework that will work with fencing panels or rail based fencing such as closeboard or picket types.
The posts are manufactured in the UK and are made from galvanised steel using a cold rolling process to fold the post into a slotted ‘H’ shape. This makes the Durapost very strong and able to handle winds up to 110mph. The manufacturer of the product offers a 25 year guarantee on the products.
The benefits of the Durapost system over traditional timber or concrete posts are many and whilst the cost of the system is initially higher its long life span means it is ultimately a more cost effective option.
Also you don’t have to use the whole system; it is simple enough to just specify the Durapost and perhaps the post cap to give you a long lasting solution. Durapost also overcomes the ‘rattling panel’ problem that many people experience with traditional slotted posts. Each post is pre-drilled on the back face and the panel or rails are screwed into position. So when the timber dries and shrinks after installation the panel remains held firm in the slot.
Durapost metal components are made from 50% recycled steel and are 100% recyclable at the end of its long life. It is made in the UK using low energy manufacturing process and is lighter to transport.
The DuraPost system is available in four finishes. Galvanised Steel, Sepia Brown, Olive Grey and Anthracite Grey.
DuraPost components include Composite Gravel boards, Post Caps, Panel Caps, cover strips, bolt down post plates, Gate Posts and ‘U’ channels to enable multiple fixing options. These items are all available in the four colour schemes offered. Please see the images below for detail.

In the three larger images above you can see how Durapost components can fit into projects.
At the top the client needed a low fence to meet boundary height requirements. On this project we used anthracite classic posts (and post caps) composite gravel boards and 90cm high panels which the client also painted anthracite. You can see the Gate post works as a corner post with the matching U Channel fitted.
On the second image the client had traditional closeboard panels installed on Sepia Brown posts using a brown composite gravelboard and again the Durapost gate post, holding the gate and forming the corner for the side run that is out of view. And yes the gate is not level across the bottom but cut to suit the rise in the path, all part of the service!
The bottom image shows how we have used the Durapost gate posts for a pergola. In fact my colleague and I carried out the entire landscaping package which included turfing and paving.
Durapost can offer many different solutions for your garden from simply offering a rot proof post for a standard panel install to a complete feature fence using composite gravel boards, panels and trellis.
