Plastic Fence Droppers

Polyfence Droppers cannot be compared with any other Plastic Fence Droppers that are sold in South Africa.  Our extremely innovative, versatile, resilient and durable HDPE plastic dropper pole is the result of years of planning and testing. The hollow nature of the Polyfence droppers with their ventilation capabilities enables them to always keep their shape and hardness. Unlike solid plastic fencing droppers that become soft after a while from too much sun exposure, these fence posts stay in position and does not become a strain on the fence. Our droppers are also extremely suited for use as electric fence droppers. Read fence droppers for more info.

Agricultural Fencing Products

Polyfence is well known for serving the agricultural fencing industry. We are the smart choice when it comes to synthetic fence posts for cattle, sheep, goat and other animal fencing.  Our plastic posts replace the steel Droppers and Y-standards in the marketplace. We have created a product that is the safest, cost effective, versatile, durable and long-lasting alternative for the agricultural industry.

It is a well-known fact that steel theft in South Africa is a problem. It has a severe impact on the farming Industry, with fence posts being stolen regularly to be sold as scrap metal.  Our plastic fence posts do not get stolen.

Our fencing products are produced with high standards of fencing safety in mind. Our fence poles are completely animal safe. They are impact resilient and do not splinter, which reduces the possibility of injury to animals. They are non-leaching and therefore do not contaminate air or soil.

Excessive heat from the sun negatively impact solid plastic fence posts. In time it makes them soft and brittle. The hollow profile of our HDPE plastic fence pipe with its ventilation properties make it ideal to combat high temperatures

The post is also perfect for use as plastic electric fence posts, which is often used on farms and in wildlife fencing.  The plastic electrical fence posts can be used without isolators because of its HDPE properties and makeup. This means the electrical wire can be connected directly to the plastic fence poles.

Veldfires are one of the main destructive factors that negatively affect farm fencing. Plastic fencing materials are not fire resistant. Our hollow HDPE fence post in combination with our patented formula contribute to slow down the point at which the plastic will start to disform, melt and burn. In this way the product stays in shape for longer.

Our heavy-duty farm fence posts are chemical resistant. They are not affected by acid rain and animal wastes We are affiliated to the Agricultural and Veterinary Chemicals Association of South Africa – (AFCASA). Our fencing materials meet all SA agricultural standards and we are AgriSA approved.  Get more information on how we can meet your agricultural fencing needs on our features and benefits page.
