Concrete Slotted Posts these posts have 2 grooves, making it ideal to create a run of fencing.
Wet cast, steel reinforced concrete posts slotted are suitable for domestic garden fencing panels, as they provide a more durable alternative to timber posts. They are not susceptible to rot in the ground. These Concrete Slotted Posts are the intermediate post within a run of fencing.
Appropriate post height for your fence panels:
- 3ft overall fence panel, use a 5ft concrete post, a 12″ gravel board and a 600mm high panel
- 4ft overall fence panel, use a 6ft concrete post, a 12″ gravel board and a 900mm high panel
- 5ft overall fence panel, use a 7ft concrete post, a 12″ gravel board and a 1200mm high panel
- 6ft overall fence panel, use a 8ft concrete post, a 12″ gravel board and a 1500mm high panel
- 7ft overall fence panel, use a 9ft concrete post, a 12″ gravel board and a 1800mm high panel
9′ & 10′ concrete posts can also be used when the ground is uneven or soft. We recommend using at least 1.5 bags of Post Mix per post.
How to install a concrete fence post
Digging a hole may sound like a simple task, but a long, narrow fencing grafter will make this task much easier if you have multiple holes to dig, and a post hole digger will make light work of removing soil from deep holes.
Concrete posts are secured in the ground with a mixture of sand & gravel mixed with cement or post mix. Post mix concrete is a ready to use premixed cement which only requires water to activate and sets quite quickly
Dig your hole to the correct depth, allowing for the height of the fence panel and the gravel board. we recommend that the hole should be a minimum 1/3 the height of the fence, so a 6 foot fence would need an 8 foot post in a 2 foot deep hole.
We recommend that the hole should be three times the diameter of the post. To avoid having to cut a concrete fence post to size, which can be hard work you can always set your post deeper into the ground.
