Ox Strain Strainer Posts

OX STRAIN STRAINER POSTS

The precast concrete ox strain strainer post is another customer led product.  We were constantly hearing customers say that the wooden strainer posts of today are not lasting, in some cases having to be replaced after only a few years from installation.  This results in the fence becoming slack and in most cases difficult to retention as new.  The key feature of the Ox Strain post is its durability – likely to last for at least 50 years, resulting in a taut fence for much longer and maintenance free, therefore a very cost effective alternative to wooden strainers.

Concrete struts are also available.  They are 2135mm (7′) long x 75mm (3″) x 75mm (3″).

This video provides a guide of installation using mechanic equipment to drive the Ox Strain Posts into the ground. This video includes a top hat placed on top of the Ox Strain Post to protect the post when driving it in.
