Our customers tell us that this is leading to a reduction in pole and post lifespan. This is bad enough for a domestic fence post but much worse when the pole is being used to support high value commercial vines, fruit trees and plants or stock fencing to prevent livestock straying.
It is probably fair to say that most farmers think they have a rough idea of the cost but the reality is probably a bit different.
Network Rail are responsible for ensuring the track remains clear of livestock and other moving hazards at all times. Not a simple task when you bear in mind they have around 16,000 miles of track and around 32,000 miles of fencing to maintain. This represents a significant cost to Network Rail of tens of millions of pounds every year.
With concerns over the lifespan of standard wooden fence posts and a desire to improve performance and reduce costs Network Rail embarked on a comprehensive 3 year evaluation process to asses alternative fencing systems, materials and wood life extension technologies.
This process included installation trials in different locations around the UK and field testing of many different materials and systems as well as extensive consultations with the Country Landowners Association and the Farmers Union.
Throughout this process we worked closely with Network Rail in providing samples and test data and liaising with suppliers, Network Rail contractors and fence installers.
At the end of this process we are pleased to say that Network Rail have continued to use wood as the material of choice for stock fencing and have included the use of composite ground line sleeves within the specification, a big boost for Postsaver

The UK’s leading supplier of home garden gym equipment www.xorbars.co.uk have announced that they will be using postsaver as standard on all their garden gyms.
From a simple outdoor garden pull up bar to one of their full garden gyms, customers can rest assured that the wooden posts used will be protected by Postsaver!
Xorbars uses both 4x4 inch (100mm x 100mm) and 5x5 inch (125mm x 125mm) and 6x6 inch (150mm x 150mm) pressure treated posts.
“There was a feeling across all trades and suppliers that wooden posts and the way they are pressure treated are just not as good as they used to be due to changes in the chemicals used, so rather than worrying about it, it seemed to make sense to simply add Postsavers to our garden gyms” Said Managing Director James Scott.
Xorbars opted to use the Wrap & Tack Postsaver sleeve on a roll.
“So far we have found it very easy to just wrap around the postsaver, staple and then apply as normal. Because we purchase the 5metre roll it doesn’t matter what size post we are using. We don’t get caught out when a customer requests 6x6 inch posts (150mm x 150mm).”Said Mr Scott.
Xorbars looked at the option of charging extra for this service, but felt that by offering postsaver as standard that it would add greater value to their outdoor gyms.
Mr Scott said that “We work very hard to make sure our garden gyms are manufactured and installed to an extremely high standard. We felt that Postsavers will work to maximise this message to our customers.”
Xorbars specialises in installing garden pull up bars and outdoor gyms in residential gardens across the UK. All of their products are available to buy online and can be purchased as a DIY option or as an installed package.
