About Birkdale

For over 40 years Birkdale has sought to redefine the design and manufacturing standards of fencing systems. Through constant innovation, bold thinking, and a commitment to reconciling form and function, we have earned the trust of millions. Today our products can be found enhancing outdoor spaces, great and small, throughout the UK. We design fencing systems that redefine the outdoor experience, and create extraordinary spaces that homeowners can be proud of. Sturdy, stylish, and effortless to install, our products are built to withstand whatever the elements can throw at them, giving years of trouble-free service. And all backed up by our guarantee of up to 25 years.

Stockists nationwide

When we designed DuraPost the goal was to make customers’ lives as easy as possible. And we think that should include viewing and buying the posts, panels, and other accessories you need to create your perfect outdoor space. We’ve partnered with Wickes and hundreds of other leading outlets throughout the UK, to help you to explore the DuraPost range up close, and select the components you need.

Trained installers

A key principle in the DuraPost design brief was making it simple, both to install and to live with. However we understand that some may not have the time, or perhaps the DIY confidence, to install their own fencing system. That’s why in 2019 we introduced a training programme for installers across the UK & Ireland. It allows our customers quickly and easily to access a skilled, experienced installer in their area who’s familiar with the DuraPost system, and can help bring their outdoor space to life.

Simple to install. Just watch.

A key principle in the DuraPost® design brief was making it simple, both to install and to live with. To support you in the installation process each DuraPost® product has an installation video. Whether installing posts, panels or accessories, you will find a video to guide you through the process on our YouTube channel.


DuraPost® - Inspired by the outdoors

Why choose DuraPost®?

We believe every garden or outdoor space deserves to be framed with stunning fencing. In DuraPost®, we have created a modern, stylish fencing system that combines timeless design with advanced, long-lasting materials, able to withstand the forces of nature. Developed around an innovative H-shaped post design, the DuraPost® system comprises sturdy cold rolled galvanised steel posts, and durable composite panels that won't rot or crack. Manufactured to exacting standards by experienced UK designers and craftspeople, DuraPost® embodies the sustainable principles to which our zero-carbon business is committed. Effortless to install, maintenance-free, and backed by our guarantee of up to 25 years, DuraPost® will help you embrace the joy of your great outdoors.

DuraPost® - Unlike timber, it's designed to go the distance

DuraPost® thrives in the UK's harsh, unforgiving conditions. Impervious to the rotting or cracking of its wooden or concrete predecessors, it offers year after year of reliable, maintenance-free service. DuraPost® has also been exhaustively tested to withstand the high winds that each year reduce thousands of fences to firewood. The DuraPost® system is available in a selection of rich colours, designed to enhance and complement the natural features of any outdoor space. And at a fraction of the weight of concrete posts, it can be installed quickly, easily, and with confidence.

DuraPost® - A core of steel

Crafted in the UK from sustainable materials (made from 50% recycled steel and 100% recyclable at end of life), DuraPost® steel fence posts not only enhance your environment, but are kinder to the world beyond it. The foundation of the DuraPost® system is the robust yet lightweight cold rolled galvanised steel post. Weighing 80% less that the equivalent concrete post, its unique H-shaped design was born of our team's unrivalled insight and experience in fencing. DuraPost® offers the flexibility to work with almost any fence panel or board. Trusted by fence installers across the UK, DuraPost® fence posts are widely used with both traditional fencing materials and our composite panels. DuraPost® delivers performance and long-term resilience unmatched by wooden and concrete alternatives.
