SupaPost™ & SupaCoping™
Our SupaPost™ molds essentially consist of four components: the main body, top former, rubber end stops and side former.
The main body has three sides with a hump on the bottom to form the slot. The rubber stops fit on each end and serve to seal the ends of the mold to prevent leakage of concrete. The top former is placed on the top of a concrete filled mold to form a slot. The steel side former is placed inside the main body against one side to form a slot for corner or three way posts.
There are four possible post configurations:
- Intermediate or Line (slot on either side)
- End (slot on one side only)
- Corner (two slots at right angles to each other)
- Three way (slots on three of the four sides)

SupaPost™, SupaCoping™ and SupaPanel™ components make up our SupaFence™ system.
Applications for posts used together with our coping and panels:
Unlike brick and concrete block block walls, panel and post privacy fences resist cracking because the individual components of the fence are not attached and are free to move independently of one another when high winds or shifting soils act upon them. Panel and post fences are also more affordable than a typical block or brick wall and can be available in a variety of textures and colors.
Advantages over concrete block and brick walls:
Posts can be made with different slot configurations including intermediate, corner, three way and end of wall. Posts for erecting 183 cm tall fences are typically 259 cm in length and about 13 cm square. The additional length is for in-ground installation. Longer posts for erecting taller fences can also be cast. Copings which sit between posts and on top of panels are approximately 183 cm wide, 7 cm high and 10 cm deep. The post for a 183 cm tall fence has a nominal weight of 82 kg. Copings typically weigh 11 kg each. Posts and copings are made from conventional dense concrete for optimal strength while SupaPanel™ is made from lightweight concrete.
Posts are embedded into concrete piers located at intervals of about 198 cm. Pier depths depend on the soil, fence height, and required wind resistance. Example images of precast made from our SupaPost™ and SupaCoping™ products are shown below:
