Tornado: the most innovative and performing profiled post on the market

Since the beginning of Tornado project, we understood that our proposal to be successful should be different from all the products available on the market, especially in a saturated market as the one of the vineyard posts.
Our Technical R&D Team focused on the particular processing of metal sheet: the texture of Tornado improves the characteristics of solidity, strength and flexibility of the pole. The special ribbing of the metal sheet, which propagates throughout the entire surface, has been designed to allow a better distribution of loads and is effective in the presence of strong winds thanks to its greater resistance. Tests carried out at certified institutes have shown that, comparing different poles with the same thickness of metal sheet, Tornado ended up as the most solid.

Tornado vineyard pole differs for its mechanical and structural characteristics. The particular ribbing that crosses both the front and the side of the profiled pole guarantees:

  • 30% more resistant than a traditional post;
  • Better load distribution;
  • Greater resistance to wind pressure;
  • Maximum efficiency in the vine plant support;
  • A simple and fast installation, suitable for any type of terrain;


Another aspect to which we have paid particular attention is the realization of the wire-holder slot, which has been studied ad hoc in order to provide the best solution both in the case of hilly installations and on the plain terrains.

The double N-slot is realized without removing material and this ensures maximum solidity of Tornado post even in those points where it is particularly stressed. The double wire-holder slot is particularly suitable for hilly terrains, as it does not allow the wire to come out.

The single N-slot, on the other hand, has been designed to facilitate and speed up the movement of mobile wires.

We are able to customize the number of slots on the pole according to the customer's needs and, on request, we also make poles with mixed slotting, consisting of double slots and single slots. In addition, there is the possibility to further customize the pole with the addition of holes.

  • They are built inside the profile of the pole without removing material, thus being sturdier to withstand the action of the grape-harvesting machine.
  • They are designed to provide support for the wire and to prevent it from accidentally coming out. This results in further savings in technical processing and less labour.
  • Ideal for mechanized installations: thanks to their positioning, they are not subject to the closure and impact of the harvesting machines. This translates into considerable savings since there will be no manpower employed after the passage of the machines.

The free cordon system consists of a single permanent wire placed (usually) at 150 cm of height, on which the whole vegetation develops. Tornado is available with a special slot, at the top of the pole, for positioning the single supporting wire. This special slot allows the stability of the wire itself and prevents it from coming out.

Cor-ten Steel®

Thanks to the alloying elements, which contribute to the formation of a permanent, self-regenerate protective surface patina with a typical brown colour, COR-TEN® steel adds to the mechanical strength an exceptionally high resistance to corrosion from exposure to weathering, up to eight times greater than a normal structural steel.

The name COR-TEN® STEEL comes from its main features:
  • CORrosion Resistance: high corrosion resistance
  • TENsile Strenght: high mechanical resistance
The main advantages of COR-TEN® steel are:
  • High corrosion and weather resistance;
  • Long duration;
  • Safety due to high mechanical resistance;
  • Maintenance costs reduction;
  • Low-environmental impact appearance;
  • Environmentally sustainable: steel can be 100% recycled;
  • Quick pole installation
