Blank Gate Post for 42H Elite EFS-15
This blank gate post is used with 42 inch tall EFS-15 aluminum fence panels. Elite blank gate posts can be installed on both sides of an aluminum gate. These gate posts are commonly used when you want a gate to be on a corner, and you need to make an angle other than 90 degrees. Use angle brackets on one side of the blank gate post to angle a fence panel. You can also use a blank gate post when you want to install a gate next to a house or structure. Gate post wall thickness is twice as thick as standard posts to support the weight of a gate, and the opening and closing of a gate. Elite posts, panels, and gates, are powder coated for a maintenance free, rust proof finish. The finish is between shiny and matte. Actual post height is 72 inches. Standard residential post size is 2 x 2 , but 2.5 x 2.5 size is also an option for larger looking posts.
Installing a 42H Blank Gate Post
There are a couple methods you can use to install 42H blank gate posts. The most often used method is to dig a hole in the ground and cement them in. The actual length of this post is 72 inches, which will allow two feet to go into the ground. If you live in a cold area, dig the post hole an extra foot deeper, add gravel, then cement the post in. This will prevent the post from moving upward when the ground freezes. If you want to mount the posts on a hard surface, you have the options of a welded base mount, or core drilling into the hard surface. Welded base mounts are welded on by Elite after cutting down the post to size. Mounting bolts are not included and can be purchased at a local hardware store. Stand alone base mounts will not hold the weight of a gate over time.
