Star Pickets – light, standard, heavy, and extra heavy duty for Australia & NZ

Star pickets, also known as Y posts or Y pickets, are made of low-carbon steel. These steel posts have a cross-section that forms a three-pointed star. The posts have pre-drilled holes along their length, enabling the attachment of wires to fix metal fences. Y posts find extensive use in the installation of temporary fences and field fencing products, such as cattle and sheep netting, as well as security fences.

Our products are available in different versions: light, heavy, and extra heavy. They can withstand significant impact without deformation or damage. Additionally, our products are highly resistant to corrosion when used outdoors.

Crafted from high-grade rolled steel, these fence star pickets possess remarkable resistance against breaking, bending, and twisting, ensuring their durability and reliability. They are available in two options: hot-dipped galvanized or traditionally coated with black bitumen, ensuring excellent corrosion resistance and a long lifespan.

Each picket, with its distinctive three-pointed star design, measures approximately 10 cm in length and possesses a sharp end that allows for easy driving into the ground. The product can be combined with our Wire Mesh series products to form an integral panel.

To facilitate the attachment of wires or fences, all pickets have pre-drilled holes along their entire length. We offer a wide range of sizes and weights for sale while allowing you to choose the most suitable option for your needs. Please find our available range listed below.
