Gate Post for 48H Elite EFF-20

This gate post is used with 48 inch tall EFF-20 aluminum fence panels. Elite gate posts are installed on both sides of an aluminum gate and also when you want your gate to be on a corner. Gate post wall thickness is twice as thick as standard posts. The added wall thickness is to support the weight of a gate, and the opening and closing of a gate. A gate post has pre-routed holes punched on one side to attach a fence panel. Aluminum fence panels have a short section on the horizontal rails that will slot into the pre-routed holes on the post. Use the provided powder coated stainless steel screws to secure the fence panel onto the post. Elite gate posts have an option for a welded base mount for mounting on hard surfaces. 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 48H Gate Post

There are a couple methods you can use to install 48H 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.
