Farm gates; only as good as the post you hang them on

Gates are an essential part of any farm fencing installation and to work properly they rely on a having a solid gate post to support them.

Some farmers use more expensive steel gate posts to support their farm gates as they have had problems with wooden posts rotting through and breaking off. But this does not have to be the case. A simple addition to the trusty wooden gate post can transform its performance by preventing ground line rot; the number one cause of post failure.


Broken wooden farm gates

As every farmer knows wooden gate posts ultimately rot through at ground level and break. This problem is much worse on gate posts because of large loads on the post from the hanging gate especially with heavier wooden farm gates .  Any weakness in the post and they bend over or worse still break off leaving you with unusable timber farm gates or worse still  broken wooden farm gates.

And as anyone who has had to change a gate post and farm gate knows this is a difficult and time consuming job. Removing the rotten large gate post which is normally concreted in place is heavy and difficult work. And replacement gate posts are expensive and require careful installation along with time consuming re-hanging of the gate be it a steel gate or a wooden farm gate.

Saving you cost and hassle

Most contractors charge anything from £100 to £200 to replace a gate post. Add in changes in wood preservative legislation and this problem is not set to get any better.

Ground line barrier sleeves  are a proven and highly effective solution to this problem they  stop wood rot preventing  the post rotting off in the first place ,keeping your farm gate standing.

Postsaver barrier sleeves are quickly and easily applied to the ground line section of the gate post using a blow torch and are available to fit all gate post sizes and can usually be purchased either direct or as part of your normal fencing supplies.  They keep the causes of rot out and the preservative in saving you the cost and hassle of having to undertake gate post repair.
