Blank Gate Post for 72H Specrail Bennington
This blank gate post is used with 72 inch tall Bennington aluminum fence panels. Specrail blank gate posts can be installed on both sides of an aluminum gate. Also when you want your 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. Specrail gate posts have an option for a welded on base mount for mounting on hard surfaces. Specrail posts, panels, and gates, are powder coated for a maintenance free, rust proof finish. The finish is in-between shiny and matte. Actual post height is 100 inches. 2.5 x 2.5 sized posts are not an option for 72 inch tall Specrail gate posts. Due to the height and weight of the fence panel, gate post wall thickness of 0.125 inches is recommended.
Installing a 72H Blank Gate Post
There are a couple methods you can use to install 72H 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 100 inches, which will allow two feet to go into the ground. If you want to mount the posts on a hard surface, it is recommended to core drill into the hard surface. Base mounts will not hold the weight of the fence panel and post if pressure is applied over time. If you live in a cold area, dig the post hole an extra foot deeper, add a little gravel, then cement the post in. This will prevent the post from moving upward when the ground freezes.
