Hardwood Survey Stakes are such a large and popular part of our range, that in 2016 we actually formed a partnership with our own mill so we could source the most durable, hardwood stakes, known for their longevity and ease of use. Hardwood Stakes are less susceptible to white ants and are much stronger when being driven into the ground. Dynamics only source raw material from mills known for their quality control, and by partnering directly with the mill we are able to offer some of the best pricing and stocks in Australia cutting out the middle man. For Bulk quantities or shipping to a remote site, please contact us, we supply by the pallet load and ship to remote sites regularly.
All Stakes have square cut pointed ends with the benefit being that the shape of the point naturally drives into the ground a lot easier, particularly required with the hard ground in Open Cut Mines. With OH&S being so important on all exploration and mine sites we've got to extra effort to ensure the stakes have a smooth finish to reduce or eliminate the risk of splinters and injuries to hands. Gloves are still always recommended as precaution. All stakes are bundled and sold in packs for easy transportation and manual handling. The stakes can be supplied as a plain stake or with a painted white top (nominally 300mm) which stands out and is visible as a survey marker when viewed at a distance, or for the mining machinery operators. The white paint also provides an excellent clear writing surface for any notes required.
We stock a range of popular sizes, from the 1500mm right down to what is known in the industry as the 'dumpy peg', the 200x25x25mm or 300x25x25mm size stakes. Our most popular sellers however remain to be the 900x25x25mm and the 1200x25x25mm with Painted White Tops. For drill and blast applications most clients like to use the 600x25x25mm to hang the Det cord off or marking out the holes.
Note: Hardwood Timber Survey Stakes are sometimes referred to as Tomato Stakes, Wooden Pegs, Dumpies, Dumpy Pegs, Timber Garden Stakes.
