These 1.2m round fence posts are strong, machine-rounded stakes that have been green tantalised pressure treated to protect the wood against rotting and damp, giving the posts an extra-long life outdoors.
Round fence posts are ideal for almost all types of fencing, including garden fences, agricultural fencing, animal fences, boundaries and farm fields. With a chamfered top and a pointed base for easy installation, these machine-round fence posts are most commonly installed with our stock fencing and electric fencing to safely contain animals, as well as smaller applications with chicken wire.

Features & benefits:
Are round fence posts treated?
Yes. Our machine-round fence posts have been green pressure treated to ensure longevity when exposed to the elements outside. We also supply UC4 round fence posts which have undergone a more vigorous and penetrative treatment, as well as cundy peel posts and creosote posts for professional applications. You can find out more about our treatments here.
Are round posts stronger than square posts?
There is little difference in strength between round posts and square posts, but they are used for different purposes. For example, whilst square posts tend to have a more stable base, round posts are most commonly used for animal enclosures and animal prevention as the sharp corners of square posts can rub against wire fencing and cause the wire to deteriorate.
For increased strength where large animals are being contained, we recommend opting for cundy peel posts. Cundy peel fence posts are stronger than both square and machine-round fence posts as the natural shape of the timber has not been altered as much.
What diameter should a fence post hole be?
If the ground is soft, we recommend creating a small pilot hole around 6 inches deep before the post is rammed into the ground using a post rammer. However, the deeper the post holes, the more stability your fence has.
Should fence posts be set in concrete?
Round fence posts are generally installed straight into the ground, taking advantage of the 4-way pointed base. If you choose to use concrete, the concrete should ideally be poured around the post as opposed to underneath to extend its overall lifespan.
