Available in various sections
Our pre-stressed posts could be normal or reinforced and have half round section.
They are the ideal solution for installations with hail net coverings placed at a considerable height dimensions, as well as any other type of installation.
Prestil pre-pressed concrete pole distinguishes itself by:
The selected raw materials:
The gravel we supply is of the highest quality, coming from certified quarries which are daily checked.
There are three main features that allow us to stand out from others competitors on the market:
The elasticity is determined by the particular compound we use - we don't use agglomerates or other chemicals - and the choice of a high quality harmonic steel strand. Those are two of the factors that leads to a higher elasticity of Prestil pre-pressed concrete.
Whether it's a vineyard plantation or an orchard plantation, the pole must also ensure a good strenght performance. Depending on the regions where they are located, vineyards may be exposed to strong winds and particularly intense atmospheric events, while in orchards there is the aggravating weight of snow or hail that drains on the net. These two aspects must be considered with great care and are crucial to ensure a stable and long-lasting system.
Our material is carefully packed and can be shipped anywhere, both with traditional transports or containers for sea transport.
One of the great benefits of our production system is to be able to achieve any length the customer requires in a very short period.
Certified cement grade No. 525
Our pre-stressed cement posts are available in different sections:
6x6cm, 7x7cm, 8x8cm, 9x9cm, 8x14cm, 10x13cm, 10x18cm
A secure investment in the vineyard and in the orchard.
The pruning, tying up, canopy management, harvesting, and finally the sucker removal are operations where the workforce can be replaced by the machines. However, in order to get the maximum efficiency and obtain the optimal result, the machines need to operate in optimized and rational plant conditions.
To this scope PRESTIL has designed a pre-stresses concrete post having advanced technical and mechanical characteristics.
From the technical point of view the novelty is represented by the elimination of the sharp edges close to the post. These represented a problem during the various mechanical operations in the vineyard as they could cause damages to the harvesting and canopy machines devices.
From the mechanical point of view the shock resistance and the elasticity of the posts has been increased, thanks to a different processing of the materials used during construction.
Sucker Removal: being this a typical combing operation, there is no longer a risk for the beaters to be damaged by the sharp edges on the posts. The suckers are better removed from the trunk, with less breakages and fewer replacements.
Tying Up: This operation gets maximum benefit from the use of the PRESTIL pre-stressed post, since the sharp edges of the traditional posts have always created damages to the ties, often vanifiyng the tying up operation.
Grape Harvesting: The beaters of the grape harvester are able to move with minimal interference, are less prone to damages and make harvesting easier. Furthermore, the beating sticks are not damaged through friction with the post and this greatly reduces the maintenance requirements of the harvester itself.
For these, and other valid reasons, the choice of the PRESTIL POST is the very first step towards a safe investment in the vineyard and in the orchard.
