What is the different between an HDG and a Strip Posts?
As we may know, an HDG post is produced with raw metal and then galvanized at end of the production.
This process gives to the Metal Post an excellent quality and longevity over the years.
The zinc covering is around 60-80 microns and this allows an efficient and sturdy vineyard trellising,
obtained also a written warranty from the producer!
Strip Galvanized metal post has the same profile and structure of the their Cousins HDG.
The main Benefit of this Metal Post is the Price.
In this case, in fact, the metal sheet used (generally Z275 steel) is already pre-galvanized with a zinc thickness of around 20 microns.Hence, due to the reduced zinc covering, this metal posts has a life expecting of 15 years around. In this case it is not possible to give any warranty to the winegrower.
