Our robinia products
- The Robinia Stake -
100% NATURAL - MOST RESISTANT WOOD IN EUROPE
The production of acacia stakes is our specialty. It is mostly used for wooden fencing, either for domestic or professional sector. Acacia stakes makes fencing much more sustainable. Many have already understood that i.e. farmers, vineyards, arborists, stud farms, hop cultures, zoos, hunting and forest estates. We offer personalized solutions that meet your needs.
Robinia forests in Romania are very dense. Trees growth is slow. Looking at the annual growth rings on the poles, you can see them very close one from each other. Acacia wood from Romania is therefore much more resistant than acacia wood from modern forests where productivity is a priority, to the detriment of the hardness of the wood.
Depending on the diameters sought, poles lifetime greatly exceeds 30 years.
Depending on the intended use, our stakes can be:
Debarked or not
Pointed (at thick end and not at thin end)
Round or sawn
Diameter measured in the middle (and not at the thick end)
A. Robinia stakes - round, peeled and sharpened
Our main product is the acacia stake, debarked and pointed. Having a stake peeled makes it last longer and a better anchoring of the staples / nails / screws in hard wood. These stakes are ideal for making fences and staking trees.
The table below shows the dimensions of stakes we have in stock. These are standard dimensions. On demand, we can produce stakes of other dimensions (up to 12 meters long and 35cm in diameter).
The following table shows the quantity of poles per pallet. Please take this into account when you send us your order as we deliver by full pallet.
The table below gives an indication of the number of poles per truck based on a load of 30m³ per transport. We also deliver smaller quantities than a full lorry, in which case the grouping costs are invoiced to the customer.
For example: for poles with a length of 2 meters and a diameter between 10 and 12 cm, we can place 1.600 poles per truck.
Once debarked and put on pallets, acacia wood as a density around 780kg/m³. Based on it, the following table gives an estimate of the weight of each acacia pole, according to its dimensions.
B. Big acacia poles
We produce all lengths of poles (up to 12m) and all diameters (up to 40cm). The majority of our customers who order poles want them peeled (the bark of acacia poles drops quickly after installation). They are used in a wide variety of jobs:
for earthworks - retain land during earthworks;
by ecological engineering companies to carry out bank tuning - reinforce the banks of ponds or watercourses;
installation of hops for brewers - in addition to its exceptional longevity, acacia is also sought after for organic crops which need wood without any chemical treatment;
installation of outdoor facilities in zoos.
C. Robinia sawn stakes
Our sawn stakes can be of two types:
1) sawn in half-rounds or quarters. These are 15% - 40% cheaper than round stakes. They are categorized by circumference and not by diameter. The most requested sawn stakes circumferences are 20-25cm, 25-30cm, 30-35cm, 35-40cm. These are widely used in vineyards that do not want stakes treated with copper salt or iron poles, and also in stud farms (acacia bark is toxic to horses).
2) sawn in square. These square stakes have four sharp edges. Sections vary from 22x22mm to 25x25cm.
D. Robinia sanded poles
The sanded poles are first peeled and then sanded to remove all the sapwood. All that remains is the heartwood - old wood, the hardest - smooth and pleasant to the touch. The poles keep their natural curvatures, which is sought by the builders of playgrounds, stilts, terraces, and other outdoor facilities.
