How much do steel fence posts cost?
When comparing the cost of steel fence posts with concrete and wood, the initial expenses are very similar. As a rough guide, 1 metre of panelled fence for both the product and installation will cost the following:
- DuraPost’s galvanised steel fence post - £67.99
- DuraPost’s galvanised steel fence post (+ powder coat) - £79.53
- Wooden fence posts – £68.52
- Concrete fence posts - £81.03
Not only is the initial cost of installing steel fence posts competitive, but they’re by far the most cost-effective solution in the long run. Due to the strength and durability of galvanised steel, DuraPost will last around 3 times longer than wood. On top of this, unlike wooden fence posts, DuraPost requires zero maintenance, so no hidden costs are attached.
Are steel fence posts sustainable?
With a growing concern for the health of our environment, the sustainability of a product plays a huge part in many buying decisions. Due to this concern, property owners have recognised the negative impact concrete fence posts have on our planet and have been seeking an eco-friendly option in the market. That’s where steel fence posts come in.
A far more sustainable option than concrete is steel fence posts. Steel is endlessly recyclable, meaning once the materials have been used, they’ll remain in circulation given that they’re recycled properly.
Yes, steel fence posts are sustainable, but DuraPost takes sustainability to another level. Being stocked and manufactured in the UK, transportation miles are cut significantly. This ensures harmful emissions are kept as low as possible for minimal impact on our planet. What more? DuraPost isn’t just manufactured in the UK. A low-energy manufacturing process is utilised to ensure the emission of greenhouse gases are limited during production. So, if sustainability is an important factor for you, DuraPost is the way forward.
