Crafted for Safety & Beauty

Smooth edges & domed top – Fully insulated –  Recycled plastic & strong steel core  – Inline post 

Plastic Forests’ Equine PLUS Posts have been specifically designed for the exacting needs of horses and their owners. The posts’ rounded edges, curved dome top and retained flexibility are crafted with safety in mind, with no sharp edges to injure horses or riders. Made from 100% recycled plastic with a fully encapsulated steel core, they combine the strength of steel with the longevity of plastic. The PLUS Posts’ smooth finish and curved design will provide a beautiful and maintenance free fence for years to come.

Our solid Equine PLUS Posts are fully insulated for easy electrification of wires, tapes or vinyl/polymer rails, eliminating the need for untidy insulators. No more purchasing, measuring and installing insulators or locating short circuits, saving both time and money. Furthermore, our entire fence post range comprising PLUS Posts, square pickets and droppers come complete with matching pre-drilled holes (to your choice) for faster installation, without bulky brackets.

Made with UV protected plastic, our posts will outlast timber posts many times over and provide superior outdoor performance in all climates and soil conditions.

Equine PLUS Posts are ideal for horse studs, hobby farms, training facilities or equestrian centres providing a strong, chemical free and long-lasting fence post that looks fantastic. Made in Australia from 100% recycled plastic, including farm plastics such as silage wrap, they’re great for the environment and the circular economy.
