Features and Benefits of Polyfence Fencing Products
The most significant features of our fencing supplies are that they are:
- UV Resistant: Due to our special combination of black carbon the product becomes extremely UV resistant. It will not fade or discolour.
- Flame Retardant: Plastic can never be flame resistant. Our special flame-retardant additives ensure that the product will only start burning at a much higher level than normal HDPE and most plastics. The product will only start burning at about 300 °C. The hollow nature of the product further increases ventilation which makes the HDPE fence post take longer to start burning.
- Impact Resilient: HDPE is known to possess a high tensile strength. This means that when under pressure it has a higher breakage point than most plastics. HDPE has a high strength to density ratio. Depending on the composition of the HDPE it can be either rigid or flexible. Our HDPE plastic products are manufactured to be stiff enough to serve as plastic fence posts, but also have the resilience to return to its original position during impact. The products never lose its shape. To read more about this feature visit our plastic dropper page.
- Strength, toughness and durability: Our plastic fencing poles are designed specifically for the purposes that they are intended for. It is made from HDPE and has high tensile strength. The walls of the fence poles are not too thick which increases strength. It is highly impact resilient and can withstand impact from animals and farm implements like tractors. It is chemical, UV, moisture, erosion and weather resistant, which makes it long lasting. Our hollow Polyfence droppers with its ventilation capabilities further increases its durability. The inside of our HDPE plastic fencing poles is constructed in such a way as to reinforce the poles further. Read more about this on our plastic droppers for fencing page.
- No Paint Needed: HDPE is generally known for its paint adhesion problems. With our plastic fencing materials, you will not encounter problems as it comes in a black colour and no paint is ever needed
- Do Not Rust: HDPE is resistant to many solvents including water. Our HDPE plastic products exhibit excellent anti-corrosive characteristics. Laboratory test simulation of wet conditions has shown our product not to weather.
- Chemical Resistant: HDPE plastic is known to be durable in most chemical interactions which make it useful in a lot of industrial applications including fencing (See HDPE Chemical resistance chart). Our special combination with other materials further enhances this feature. Our plastic Y Pole replacements and Droppers are totally acid rain and pesticide proof and are very popular in the agricultural sector. They are impervious to acids in animal wastes as well.
- Non-Conductive: HDPE Plastic is non-conductive and cannot transmit an electrical stream. It thus makes our plastic poles ideal for use as electric fence posts. No isolators are needed, and the electrical wiring can be connected directly to the fence post with binding wire. HDPE is also not water absorbent and water does not cling to it. This further makes Polyfence plastic electric fence standards, droppers and diamond mesh a great option to use as an electric fence.
- Weather Resistant: The patented formula that we use in our HDPE fencing products includes a special mix of black carbon, which protects the product against the elements and makes it weather resistant. Read more about how extremely weather resistant our products are on the fence dropper page.
- Environmentally Friendly: Our environmentally friendly HDPE fencing materials contains no arsenic, heavy metals, chloride or other contaminants of ground water and soil. HDPE (High-density polyethylene) which is considered a plastic that is safe and is non-leaching. It does not release harmful fumes into the environment. It requires less energy to manufacture HDPE than steel, further making it Eco-friendly.
- Moisture resistant: Our HDPE recycled products are extremely resistant to water. It does not absorb water and water does not cling to it. Check out this chemical resistance chart. Products are resistant to rotting, insects, mildew and mold.
- Lightweight: HDPE properties are lightweight, and this combined with the hollow profile of our fence poles make them lightweight and easy to work with. It also makes transportation that much easier.
- Low maintenance: These fencing products do not fade or discolour. HDPE is easy to clean, and it is stain and graffiti resistant. It is durable and keeps its shape and therefore it does not need to be replaced often.
- Superior Quality: The quality of the HDPE we use is our own patented formula of extra ingredients and the design of every product is what makes them unique and superior in quality. Visit our Facebook page today to see for yourself.
Y-Standard Replacement Poles
At Polyfence Pty Ltd we are leaders in innovations and manufacture many unique plastic fencing products. One of the most unique of these products are our Y-Standard Replacement Poles. The development of this product as well as our fence droppers were prompted due to the high amount of theft of steel fencing posts that occur in South Africa. Because of our thorough research we have developed a product that is truly one of its kind. Our replacement to Y-Standards is intended to not just save money for those that use our product, but also give them peace of mind when buying our quality, durable and safe product.
What is a Y-Standard Pole?
Y-Standard Poles are used in fencing to ensure that the fence stay upright. They are currently the most widely used type of metal standard in the industry. The Steel Y-Standard Poles that are presently available are either coated with black bitumen or some are galvanized after being sandblasted. Some contractors protect the standards by applying bitumous aluminium paint for rust protection. When a fence is erected a corner post is embedded into the ground. Wooden or steel fence post are used. Plastic posts can not be used as fencing corner posts. The Y-Standards are knocked into the ground about 6 to 8 meters apart and the wires are attached to them. Droppers are used at 1 to 1.5-meter intervals to keep the barbed wires in line.
How our Y-Standard Replacement Poles are used?
The Y-Standard Replacement Pole is just what the name implies. It is a straight replacement for steel Y-standards. The pole is hollow, reinforced and made from High-density polyethylene (HDPE) and a special patented combination of other ingredients that lend to its truly unique features. The Y-Standard Replacement Pole can be used as follows:
It can be planted into the ground by drilling a hole with an auger and planting the pole about 400-600 mm deep into the ground. Ground can be compacted around the pole to keep it firm or it can also be cemented in the ground. In certain rocky areas we would recommend using our 56mm Y-Standard Replacement Pole. In these circumstances it might be necessary to knock a steel Y-standard into the ground and place the Y-Pole Replacement over the steel Y-Standard as shown in the example.
Y-Standard Replacement Poles for Electric Fencing
As with our Plastic Fence Droppers the Y-Pole Replacement Poles are perfect for use in electric fences. The wiring can be tied directly to the pole and no isolators are needed. This coupled with other aspects of safety makes our product very popular in the farming and game fencing industry.
Y-Pole Replacement Poles: Extremely strong and durable
Due to the make-up of the product and the way it is designed our Y-Standard Replacement Poles are extremely durable and weather resistant. (see test results). Y-Standard Replacement Poles are designed to withstand the harsh weather conditions in South Africa. The product is UV-resistant and do nor rust. It is black and do not need any painting. Y-Pole replacement Poles are extremely strong and will not break on impact
Y-Pole Replacement Poles: Safe for Animals
We primarily designed the poles for the Agricultural Industry although it is perfect for use in many other types of fencing. In game fencing and farm fencing safety of animals are a great priority. Our Y-Standard Replacement Poles are extremely resilient. They bend on impact, but will always keep their shape by returning to their original position. This flexibility ensures the safety of game and farm animals if they run into the fencing and strike the poles. The flexibility lowers the chances of serious injury. The poles are manufactured from HDPE. HDPE is considered one of the safest plastics on the planet and does not leach dangerous toxins into the soil. It is therefore safe to plant our Y-Standard replacement poles into the ground.

Quality Plastic Fence Droppers at Affordable Prices
Why should you buy our hollow fence droppers?
Polyfence is synonymous with quality and our Plastic Fence Droppers are one of the plastic fencing products that we are very proud of. Our Fence Droppers are superior to any other plastic droppers on the market. We designed them to present the market with a viable alternative to steel droppers. Our hollow plastic droppers comply with all necessary criteria as the perfect fence dropper solution, as follows:
- They are lightweight and inexpensive.
- They are not affected by any weather conditions, including acid-rain.
- They are strong, resilient, extremely durable and maintenance-free.
- They are resistant to most chemical solvents including pesticides and animal urine.
- They are an environmentally safe product that does not release harmful toxins into the environment.
- The internal reinforcement of our hollow droppers ensures their strength and rigidity, yet with sufficient resilience to withstand a relatively high side impact of accidental contact by animals
- They maintain their straight shape and will not warp due to intense sunny conditions, such as the problem of solid plastic droppers.
Problem with Steel Droppers
As a product there is nothing wrong with steel droppers and they still present one of the best fencing post options. The problem is that steel theft in South Africa is and will always be a problem. Hence the search for alternative fencing pole options
Quality Plastic Fence Droppers At Polyfence
We soon realized that in order to replace steel droppers we needed to create a quality alternative. An enormous amount of research has gone into the creation of our plastic droppers. The result of years of tests is a complete product that is innovative, versatile, resilient and durable. Our fence droppers are no normal plastic poles. It is totally unique in structure and make-up.
Lightweight fence droppers
Our plastic fence droppers are much lighter than traditional steel and wooden droppers. It is therefore much easier to handle and transport.
Construction of our fence droppers
On our fencing products features and benefits page you will learn about the strength, durability and toughness of all our fencing material, especially our plastic droppers. The way that the fence droppers are constructed plays just as big a role in its strength and durability as the fact that the product is made from HDPE.
Our droppers are casted into pipe form which makes them hollow. This ensures the ventilation capabilities of the dropper. The hollow droppers are moulded with transverse material strips that run all the way down the inside of the pipe. This kind of structure increases its strength and rigidity. It prevents droppers from being compressed when it comes under pressure from the wires that are fixed to it. The construction of the pipe with the ventilation effect of its hollowness ensures that it will never lose its shape in the intense heat of our South African climate.
Air can constantly flow through the dropper and the hollowness enables it to “breathe” in humid and hot conditions, thus ensuring its rigidness. With solid droppers 50% of the dropper surface is exposed to direct sunlight and it must constantly absorb this heat. With hollow droppers only 25% of the surface is exposed to direct sunlight and the flow of air through the hollow fence dropper cools the dropper and helps with UV resistance. Constant exposure to sunlight eventually takes its toll on solid droppers as they become soft. This leads to them becoming a strain on the fence. (see our example of our Polyfence dropper’s vs solid dropper installation)
PVC vs HDPE Droppers
We do not sell just any type of plastic product. Our fence droppers can not be compared to any other plastic droppers. You should do careful research as to what type of plastic is used when you buy your droppers. PVC is a vinyl polymer plastic that is low cost, durable and is often used in construction. It has a high tensile strength and it is lightweight. It is widely used in the production of pipes, both for above and underground usage. High density polyethylene (HDPE), is a thermoplastic that is made from petroleum. HDPE is used in a variety of applications and industries where excellent impact resistance, high tensile strength, low moisture absorption and chemical and corrosion resistance properties are required. PVC is generally not suited for use as fence posts. According to thermofischer.com the glass transition temperature of HDPE is -25ºC, whilst PVC is way higher at over 70ºC. PVC therefore exhibits much lower impact strength at room temperature. PVC is heavier and stronger, but HDPE is harder and more abrasion resistant. Droppers and other fence posts designed from HDPE show a much lower fail rate compared to PVC posts, when they are subjected to harsh elements like rain, cold, heat and wind. HDPE is more resistant to salt, corrosive materials and abrasion from sand, straw and dust, making it ideal for farm purposes.
Impact Resilient product
When animals run into or kick the fence dropper it is resilient enough to absorb the impact and immediately return to its original position.
In a book by George A Antaki called “Piping and Pipeline Engineering: Design, Construction, Maintenance, Integrity and Repair” p.68, it is explained that a condition called “plane strain” specifies that the thicker the part, the more constrained is the material at its center and the lower its toughness. Toughness is the ability of a material to absorb impact energy prior to rupture. Polyfence dropper wall thickness is small, which greatly enhances our product’s toughness according to this theory. We are interested in the impact from the outside and according to the theory the thin walls (see wall thickness on our dropper product page) make it more tough. If the inside of a pipe is subjected to pressure, a thicker wall would be more beneficial. The thicker the wall in our case, the more it would be prone to brittle fracture, and the higher its minimum operating temperature.
Why Tensile Strength is not important when it comes to Droppers?
The tensile strength of a material is its capacity to withstand stretching forces until it fractures. Fence droppers are not subjected to any longitudinal forces. Its tensile strength is therefore not a priority factor.
Fire Retardant Fence Droppers
Like with all our other Fencing posts, special flame-retardant additives are added to our HDPE Droppers to enhance their resistance to fire. According to thermofischer.com the maximum usages temperature of HDPE is 120ºC. This is considerably higher than the PVC products that ranged between 79 and 85 ºC. They also indicate that HDPE would start melting at between 125-138 ºC. Our special flame-retardant additives ensure that the fence droppers can withstand temperatures of up to 180 ºC before it starts to deform, 220 degrees before it melts and 300 degrees before it burns. The design of the droppers furthermore assists in slowing down the burning process. The flow of cool air through the hollow dropper also makes it more fire resistant, because it slows down the build-up of temperature. Veldfires are one of the main destroyers of farm fences. Unfortunately, plastic will burn at some point. The construction of our plastic droppers with their hollow nature and the combination of HDPE and special flame-retardant additives ensures that Polyfence droppers will survive low intensity veldfires.
Use of Droppers in Electrical Fencing
Steel and Wooden fence posts are not ideally suited for use in electric fences. Our plastic droppers are very suitable for use on electric fences. It is manufactured from High Density Polyethylene which means that it does not absorb water and water does not cling to it. It is non-conductive. There is no need for isolators and the electric wires can be connected directly to the droppers with binding wire.
Polyfence Plastic Fence Droppers: An Eco-Friendly Product.
Polyfence Droppers are designed from HDPE. High Density Polyethylene is commonly recycled and made into plastic lumber. HDPE is a type 2 plastic and is generally considered Eco-Friendly because they are made mainly from post-consumer products and are recyclable at the end of their useful life. At Polyfence we use recycled HDPE to manufacture our products thereby contributing to a green environment.
Extremely weather resistant
Our special patented formula that we use in the design of our plastic fence droppers protects the product against the elements. HDPE is generally not UV resistant, but our product is extremely UV and Acid Rain resistant. It is constructed from HDPE and is therefore highly resistant to most solvents including water. Our Droppers need no paint, will never rust and will not weather. Test were done on our fence dropper and Y-standard replacement pole. The test simulated extreme hot dry and wet conditions for a period of 10 years. The test results showed that the product still looked new and that no evidence of chalking or cracking was evident. It was concluded that the product would last many years more under outdoor conditions.

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.
Y-Standard Intermediate Replacement Poles
Steel Y standard poles are commonly used for fencing. Our intermediate plastic Y pole is a replacement for steel Y-standards. It is made from HDPE and has all the features of the other plastic products that we manufacture. This makes it a cost- effective option to use as electric, home, livestock and perimeter fence posts. Check out our Y standards prices.
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).
