The Oz-post is a four-finned,
harpoon-like spear manufactured from 3mm hot dipped galvanised
high grade steel which is simply driven into the ground.
Your wooden or steel post
is then slipped into a sleeve at the top of the spear
and appropriately fixed there. It's
As Simple As That!
Point: This is shaped
like a masonry chisel which assists in penetrating light
Body: a tapered or straight-sided,
four-finned spike giving great lateral strength and stability.
When digging holes the soil
structure is disturbed but with oz-post there is no disturbance
other than a mild compaction.
Because of the large surface
area of the fins there is maximum contact with the surrounding
soil giving excellent grip.
During the driving process
the fins also give directional stability so that in most
cases once they are inserted approximately half way they
remain correctly levelled and aligned.
Once the driving process
is completed the fins give the oz-post their necessary
load bearing strength which makes them ideal for supporting
all kinds of structures. they have the ability to withstand
loads both diagonally and horizontally.
Sleeves: these are pre-drilled
for ease of post fixing and designed to suit various types
of wooden and steel posts. they allow water to escape
from around wooden posts preventing rot.
Domestic and light industrial posts of all kinds they can
be installed with the post sleeve in or out of the ground.
should I use them?
Oz-posts are environmentally
friendly removable and reusable.
Oz-posts on extraction
leave a tiny cross-shaped hole that quickly disappears
as the soil closes in naturally.
Compare this with the
man made boulder that is created when concrete is installed
in the ground and the resultant labour required to remove
or replace it if the structure requires relocation or
As there is no longer
any need to bury your posts, wooden and steel structures
may be of shorter length thereby saving valuable resources.
No environmental impact
on insertion or removal and there is no rot caused by
soil and moisture - your wooden posts are protected.
be achieved by either of two simple methods:
For domestic use 1 x level 1 x sledgehammer & oz-post
For professional use 1 x level 1 x any standard jackhammer
( air, electric, petrol, etc..)
- One oz-post jackhammer adaptor regular use of a level
is necessary to maintain vertical alignment during the driving
process. n.b. We can manufacture an adaptor
to suit any jackhammer.
