"A Life Long Aussie Mate"
We’ve had enough of drought, floods and economic uncertainty and with the environment firmly on the political agenda at the moment we don’t need fair weather friends but rather innovative solutions so its good to know there is a life long Aussie mate we can depend on.
Fencing and repair of damaged fences in particular is a high priority for many of us now and value for money is essential, the innovative, fully recycled plasmar composite plastic fence posts, (manufactured by Australian Composite Technology) are proving a very successful alternative to conventional fencing materials. This long life range of posts, strainers and other products is suitable for a wide range of agriculture, viticulture and aquaculture applications and is an environmental winner.
Karl & Laura agents for plasmar products in Mackay Qld said “the interest in the product is overwhelming and exciting and customers have been exceptionally pleased with the product and the finished look of the fence lines.” Karl & Laura said “that they had fenced with the products themselves and one of the biggest draw cards is the life long durability of the products with CSIRO testing showing a 50 to 100 year life span.” This is real value for money and an investment worth making. But the real talking point was that “these products are also environmentally friendly and 100% recycled so it makes a lot of sense to look at them as an alternative to conventional fencing products. “
The product can be nailed, drilled, stapled, driven and can be used with all wire and rail products. The posts are solid and will not be eaten by termites or infested with fungus and won’t rot. Given that they can be used in high alkaline and acidic soils they are proving to be a winner in areas that have problem soils or constant wet conditions.
The agents said “these posts are definitely your life long Aussie mates when it comes to fencing once and not having to worry about replacing and repairing, they won’t let you down. Do it once, do it right.
