Hampton’s Intermediate Metal Post andClip System Launches to a record number of visitors at the Driffield Show


Another successful Driffield show for Hampton Steel; the seventh successive year as a main sponsor of the Fencing and Landscaping News Fencing Competition.  An inspiring display of fencing expertise, performed by some of the most experienced and proficient contractors in the UK saw Dan Critchlow Fencing emerge as worthy 2018 winners, Perrett Fencing took second place and Sam Moore third. Our congratulations go to them all.

Versalok®, Hampton Steel’s new, patented metal intermediate post and clip system, was officially launched to a record number of visitors at Driffield. This incredibly versatile metal post system features continuous lozenge shaped holes along the post making it suitable for use with all woven wire mesh fence patterns. With a magnesium, aluminium and zinc alloy coating, Versalok® is guaranteed for thirty years, an excellent long life alternative to timber posts.

The Versalok® stainless steel clip taps easily into any of the holes on the post and, where required, two clips can be inserted into one hole.

Combined with Hampton’s award winning metal box and angle strainer systems, Versalok® provides for a fully integrated metal post system. Versalok® posts are manufactured from high yield strength steel in 1.5mm and 2.5mm options, standard post lengths of 1.8m, 2.2m and 2.9m are available from stock, other post heights can be made to order (minimum production quantities apply).
