Z Posts, distinguished by their z-shaped cross-section, afford a notable blend of durability and adaptability in their application. Z Posts adeptly balance performance with economic sensibility, available in two key sizes – 125 x 90 and 100 x 50in – and offering the convenience of both Bolt Down and Dig-in installation options. Predominantly utilised in environments where traffic is lighter or poses a lower risk, they are a pragmatic choice for delineating perimeters and safeguarding areas without requiring substantial investment. Whilst the standard spacing is 3.2m between posts, closer intervals of 1.6m or the addition of handrail extensions may be considered to augment the level of protection, especially in areas where pedestrian interaction is prevalent.
RSJ Posts (Rolled Steel Joist Posts), renowned for their robust construction and ability to endure significant impacts, emerge as a premium choice for scenarios demanding the utmost level of protection. Pivotal in safeguarding valuable plant machinery and pedestrians, especially in high-traffic or high-risk zones, RSJ Posts are exemplary in scenarios where the potential for significant impacts is escalated.
With availability in bolt-down and dig-in configurations, they provide a sturdy, reliable barrier that significantly mitigates the risk of damage upon impact. Although 3.2m centres are typical, in scenarios that entail heightened protection – such as proximate pedestrian pathways or adjacent to high-value infrastructure – posts may be positioned at 1.6m intervals and/or be enhanced with handrail extensions to escalate safety and shield against vehicular impacts.
