OZ-POST INSTANT POST HOLE foundations
What are Oz-Post ground spikes?
Oz-Post ground spikes are pre-fabricated galvanized steel bases (ground anchors) designed to permanently support posts without the need to dig holes and pour concrete foundations. Oz-Posts foundations are used in signpost, marker post, street furniture, underground service marker, fencing, domestic and farm stockyard applications.
Why use Oz-Post?
The Oz-Post range are the original system for saving time and labour when installing permanent and temporary posts. Oz-Posts will save time and money through shorter installation times and longer life span. Across all applications an Oz-Post is fully recyclable, retrievable and re-useable also eliminating wastage. When removed an Oz-Post will not leave a hole, making it the perfect quick and easy option for both temporary and permanent fencing requirements.
Oz-Posts have also been impact tested, rated for horizontal loads and wind resistance and are manufactured in accordance with Australian Standards. Oz-Post is the perfect alternative to time consuming post installation methods and have a straight or tapered fin type to suit soft through to hard soil types.
How are they installed?
An Oz-Post ground spike is simply driven into the ground with a jackhammer or can be manually hammered in, with no digging or concreting required. Simply drive the ground anchor into the ground, insert the post and fix into place using the Oz-Post fixing wedge.

The tapered spike is designed for soil conditions commonly found in well compacted areas. The tapered edge pierces the surface with ease and enters on a gradual angle. The fin is 3mm galvanized steel and the four fins give it lateral stability and strength.More Info
The straight sided spike is ideal for less compact soil densities. The straight fin has a broader surface providing maximum contact with soil and superior grip. Once the driving process is complete the fins give the Oz-Post high load bearing strength making them ideal for post anchoring.More Info
