Blank Post for 54H Specrail Essex
This blank post is used with 54 inch tall Essex aluminum fence panels. A blank post is commonly used when you need to make angles other than 90 degrees or when stair stepping fence panels are required. Use angle brackets one one side of the post to angle the fence panel, and wall brackets to attach the fence panel to a longer blank post to stair step. Standard post caps are included with all Specrail posts. 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 84 inches which provides two feet extra to cement into the ground. Standard residential post size is 2 x 2 , but 2.5 x 2.5 size is also an option for larger and thicker walled posts.
Installing a 54H Blank Post
There are a couple methods you can use to install Specrail 84 inch tall blank 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 84 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 a little 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 option of a base mount, welded base mount, or core drilling into the hard surface. Welded base mounts are attached by Specrail after cutting down the post to fit a 54H Essex fence panel. Mounting bolts are not included and can be purchased at a local hardware store.
