Because we want you to work in the best conditions possible, you will find below our advice to assist with the installation of your posts:
First, how do you plant the posts ? Our posts can be planted with a mallet or a hydraulic/pneumatic machine. We recommend you to use a chuck or a dividing item to not deform the head of your posts. In rocky or stony soils, it is better to make a hole beforehand.
Then, to have a perfect stability of your trellising, Cugnart posts should be set 50cm into the soil, for the heights between 1m40 and 2m; or 70cm for heights higher than 2m. Make sure the opening of the section is facing the slope.
The distance between the posts must not exceed 6m. If your vines has a lot of vegetation or is exposed to a side wind, we recommend a maximum distance of 4m.
The end posts have to be planted diagonally with an angle of around 70°. The post must be connected to the mooring by two tie rods
If you have any questions concerning the installation of your Cugnart posts, do not hesitate and contact us.
