WoodShield timber posts have been specifically created for use in all general agriculture applications. The fencing posts and rails are perfectly suited to commercial farming or the hobby farm as the coated timber provides strong, safe, chemical free posts which are virtually maintenance free. WoodShield timber fencing posts have equivalent strength and rigidity combined with the protective properties, toughness and lifespan of polyethylene.
Being coated in plastic ensures the timber posts are more resilient to harsh climatic conditions and pests alike while displaying exceptional resistance to bending, warping and splitting. With UV protected polyethylene which is completely inert the plastic coated timber posts provide superior performer in extreme climates. No sagging from heat or brittleness from cold, WoodShield posts will perform on your farm or ranch for decades.
Commercial farming or the hobby farmers have significant flexibility as WoodShield caters for all standard fence fastener systems. Electrification of WoodShield fencing is easier requiring fewer insulators which lessens the overall cost of installation and maintenance. Due to WoodShield’s strength and flexibility there are fewer breakages from mechanical harvesting.

The Premier Coated Timber Posts

WoodShield timber posts offer you a pine post with equivalent strength and rigidity combined with the protective properties, toughness and lifespan of polyethylene. Being coated in plastic ensures the posts are resilient to all vermin as well as the harsh Australian climate and extreme temperatures, while displaying exceptional resistance to bending, warping and splitting.

WoodShield timber posts features a simple yet revolutionary protection system completely free of chemicals. The process creates a strong adhesive bond between the timber and plastic sheath leaving no exposed timber and completely sealing the post. The post ends are protected with very thick end caps which enable them to be hydraulically “whacked” into the ground exactly as a standard timber post would.

The WoodShield production process coats a machined pine timber pole in a protective layer of plastic up to 6mm thick, encasing the post to a finished size of 83mm, standard post or 124mm for row-end posts. Rectangle fencing rails are produced in the same way.

The increased use of mechanical harvesting equipment on most commercial farms has also raised the breakage rate of typical treated timber posts, this has now been addressed by WoodShield’s superior strength and flexibility. WoodShield posts are a totally non-chemical option and are also ideal for organic growers.

Go Chemical Free – No more CCA Chemicals

WoodShield has addressed the many issues of chemically treated posts; splitting, chemical leaching, rotting and breaking at ground level to name a few. WoodShield offers a chemical free long life timber post with little to no degradation over time, a real alternative to CCA posts.

In addition treated posts gradually deteriorate, are hazardous to personnel and can leach chemicals into your soil or water. The disposal of damaged CCA posts is a major issue for agricultural industries and now adds to the unit cost of a post. Mechanical harvesting has also raised the breakage rate of posts which is also adding to this disposal problem.

The many attributes of WoodShield fencing posts and rails including their performance and life expectancy make them the most economically efficient fencing system available to the agricultural and farming industry today.
