Hardwood Posts

Startimber hardwood posts are products that are only made in tropical hardwood. Because of its look and the way of sawing and planing, these products are all in all more beautiful and better than all of the other hardwood that isn’t sold under the name StarTimber. The wood has been sorted multiple times so that you will always receive the highest attainable quality.

This product is not sold at construction markets or at a normal wood trader. Only StarTimber dealers offer this product for sale. StarTimber hardwood is sustainably-produced wood, thus from reliable production sources.

Hardhout Discount is one of the few online dealers of this product.

Hardwood posts are available in European hardwood as well as in Tropical hardwood. An example of European hardwood is Douglas wood, often used for constructions such as verandas, partial roofs or garden houses. Tropical Hardwood posts can be used for many purposes and are available in various dimensions, they are often used as fence posts, field fence posts or posts for carports and partial roofs. The most common wood types are Azobe, Angelim, Massaranduba and Bankirai, in a planed or fine sawn variant.

Hardwood posts: planed or fine sawn?

Hardhout Discount sells hardwood posts both in a planed and a fine sawn variant. Usually planed hardwood posts are used for visible concrete and a fine sawn post when the look doesn't matter that much.

StarTimber hardwood products are available as a pre-planed post or as a fully planed post. A planed post has had an extra mechanical treatment and is therefore more expensive than a traditional fine sawn hardwood post. This also applies to a pre-planed StarTimber post, this one is a little bit more expensive than a fine sawn post. But in exchange you get a splinter-free product with appearance ( looks ). Field fence posts used for fencing with mesh wire along parks or highways are often fine sawn. But if you don't opt for a field fence post, and you want to place a fence, in that case a planed post is usually used. We have them in various dimensions. Planed in 6.5 x 6.5 and 8.5 x 8.5 cm. Usually the length of 2.75 or 3m1 is used for a fence. Hardwood posts as field fence posts however can be made in both variants. In the equestrian sport usually only planed material is used since a horse could get injured by a fine sawn field fence post. A planed field fence post has a round edge and is splinter-free, hence why this post is chosen. These posts often have a dimension of 8 x 8 or thicker. The lengths are often 2 or 2.5 m1 long.

Why choose hardwood posts from Hardwood Discount online?

Hardhout discount only delivers sustainably-produced hardwood, in accordance with all of the rules and legislation within and outside of the EU. We check the legality of the hardwood posts and all of the other sizes ourselves in the countries of origin. This is important, for example for the survival of the tropical rainforest. We monitor the quality and we make sure that we always have a stock available throughout the year.

Planed hardwood posts

Our hardwood posts are splinter-free and straight-grained. A fine sawn post has a rough surface and always has a few splinters. A machine makes the post’s surface smooth and gives it a round edge. This way the post has more cachet than a fine sawn post.

Origins of hardwood

Hardwood posts come from the rainforests in Africa and South America. We buy the wood from hardwood importers who import the hardwood in accordance with the latest laws and regulations. Both Africa and South America produce beautiful wood types for the Dutch market.

Tropical hardwood for partial roofs, verandas or garden houses is often only used as a stanchion. Tropical hardwood is heavier in similar weight and harder to process than Lariks Douglas or Oak. Tropical hardwood is however a lot more sustainable than Oak or Lariks Douglas. That's why we recommend to use tropical hardwood if you place wooden posts in the ground. Do you place posts or wood above the ground, then Oak or Douglas are also sufficient for a long durability. Also painting the wood extends the durability.
