Say Goodbye to Rusty Fences! Discover the Alternative to Steel Star Pickets

Hello, and welcome back to EnduraPost, where we delve into the nitty-gritty of rural fencing. Today, we’re tackling a question that’s been on many of our minds: What can we use instead of steel star pickets? It’s a hot topic, and for good reason. Steel star pickets, once the go-to for sturdy fencing, are now showing their flaws, and it’s becoming a pressing issue whether we’re discussing black steel, zinc-coated, or even galvanised options.

The Trouble With Steel Star Pickets

The main concern with steel star pickets is their longevity—or lack thereof. They’re simply not holding up in various soil conditions, be it acidic, alkaline, or saline. And if you’re contemplating an electric fence, prepare for additional headaches. Steel pickets require insulators to prevent short circuits, which means more accessories and expenses.

But don’t lose hope just yet! Keep reading, because we’re about to introduce you to an innovative solution that not only addresses these fencing dilemmas but also champions a major environmental cause.

Are you tired of the relentless cycle of replacing and maintaining your steel star pickets? It’s a common frustration. These pickets seem to succumb to rust at an alarming rate, and neglecting their upkeep leads to a domino effect of problems, including collapsed fences and the potential loss of valuable livestock. The extra costs and effort required for insulation only add insult to injury.

I recently spoke with a fencing contractor from Townsville who encounters these issues daily. Even specialised powder-coated star pickets and galvanised Maxi posts, designed for harsh environments, can’t withstand the coastal salt flats of North Queensland. Clients are left with the costly burden of frequent replacements.

Is There A Better Alternative?

So, what’s the alternative to steel star pickets? Let me introduce you to the EnduraPost Square Picket. These robust square pickets are crafted from recycled polypropylene and a mineral composite blend, making them incredibly durable. They can be driven into the ground just as easily as their steel counterparts, yet they never rust or rot, regardless of the environment. This means they’re perfect for any soil type and even the most corrosive tidal salt flats.

Another standout feature of the EnduraPost Square Picket is its insulation properties. When building an electric fence, the need for additional insulators vanishes, as the picket itself acts as an insulator. This translates to a more cost-effective and hassle-free electric fencing solution.

Environmental Benefits

And let’s not overlook the environmental benefit. EnduraPost Square pickets are made from recycled polypropylene materials, such as bulk fertiliser bags, that would otherwise end up in landfills or be incinerated. This repurposing not only tackles the issue of plastic waste but also provides a long-lasting fencing solution.


If you’re fed up with the constant battle against rusting steel star pickets, the tedious maintenance, and the desire for a reliable and eco-friendly fencing option, then it’s time to consider the EnduraPost Square Picket.
