Octo posts are 1.8m high and 85mm square, with the corners taken off, hence the Octo name. Although new to this area, they have been used successfully in Wales for many years.
Pointed for easy insertion and with flat sides that make stapling netting etc. easy.
Octo posts are made from Larch, which is classed as a moderately durable timber. To add further protection, they are incised and then pressure-treated.
This combination makes them directly comparable with, if not better than the round, peeled Pine UC4 treated posts generally used as agricultural posts for wire netting.
