The EKO post is used as intermediate post for espalier vineyards, also in case of major production, with big loads of grapes, vigorous vegetation and a high mechanization, including mobile handling of containment wires.
The innovative geometry of the profile, with new reinforced ribs, provides a highly resistant, but flexible and elastic post.
Furthermore, the new geometric shape provides for great resistance, especially sidewise, to ensure the post’s stability in the ground and prevent the rows from tilting.
The post is profiled and molded using structural high yield steel strips, such as those used in the automotive industry, which gives the product great flexibility and elasticity.
The steel is 100% recyclable and thus does not present any disposal issues.
The structural steel surface 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” colored 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 color is ideal for protected-landscape areas and is used to ensure low environmental impact.
The new EKO post was tested against corrosion through exposure to salt mists, adding the main chemical products used in agriculture. All lab tests were brilliantly successful.
EKO post is available in different varieties according to its function, height and hooks types, N- and H-shape.
The N-shape 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-shape hook is recommended for vineyards that are implemented on flat lands and with consistent use of mechanization for containment wires.
It is furthermore available a specific version designed for Free Cordon systems, without side hooks but with just a cut on the top.
