Combi Posts
A Durable Choice

 

Combi-posts for sheet-piling consist of an untreated pinewood post with a plastic top-piece.

The pinewood post is situated underwater and only the plastic top-piece protrudes above the waterline. This prevents rotting caused by the interaction of air and water. The top-piece can be worked in the same way as wood; i.e. it can be sawed, drilled, bolted, etc. Because they are maintenance free and have an extremely long lifespan, purchasing Combiposts ultimately leads to substantial cost reductions.

  • Maintenance free

  • Durable (lifespan of more than 40 years!)

  • Does not rot or splinter
