IRON POSTS

EKO IRON POST

ico-uva

The EKO post is used as an intermediate post in the implementation of espalier vineyards, also in case of major production, with big loads of grapes, vigorous vegetation and a high degree of mechanization, including for the mobile management of containment wires.

The steel is 100% recyclable and thus does not present any disposal issues.

The surface of the structural steel is protected with two different types of coating: the first layer consists of a hot-dip zinc coating that is applied before processing the product; the second layer consists of a “rusty-like” coloured polyester that is applied using the powder coating technique.

Such method consists in making the polyester adhere to the steel surface, thus by “baking” the product at a temperature that can reach up to 210°C.

The post’s special colour is ideal for protected landscape areas and is used to ensure low environmental impact.

The post can be equipped with two different types of hooks: N and H.

The N hook is recommended for vineyards that are implemented in hilly areas, where the sloped grounds could make the wires come out of their natural seat.

The H hook is recommended for vineyards that are implemented on flat lands and with consistent use of mechanization for containment wires.
