Only treated poles are suitable for Agricultural use::
The 457/H4 specifies only Radiata and Pinasta species may be used. This specification guarantees both the timber pole and the treatment, the hazard class H4 is suitable for ground contact (H5 under extreme wet conditions)

Types of treatments
There are two approved treatments available Creosote and Tanalith Weatherwood / C.C.A.

Tapered poles
This is normal utility pole as used in vineyard trellising fencing, etc

Cylindrical poles
These are cylindrically machined pine poles with the same diameter throughout the pole, normally used in applications such as roof trusses, post & rail fencing, jungle-gyms etc

Tapered Pole Diameters
The poles are measured in the following sizes, this means that the diameter of the pole varies between 50mm-80mm on the thin end. Here are the standard diameters.
(50mm-80mm), (80mm-100mm), (100mm-120mm), (120mm-140mm), (140mm-160mm)
N.B. The idea of 50mm on the thin end and 80mm on the thick end, is wrong

1,2m 1,5m 1,8m 2,1m 2,4m 2,7m 3,0m 3,6m 4,2m 4,8m 5,4m 6,0m
