Gate Post for 48H Specrail Essex
This gate post is used with 48 inch tall Essex aluminum fence panels. Specrail 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. 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 70 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 few 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 70 inches, which will allow almost two feet to go into the ground. If you want to mount the posts on a hard surface, you have the options of a base mount, welded base mount, or core drilling into the hard surface. Welded base mounts are added by Specrail after cutting down the gate post to fit a 48H Essex panel. Mounting bolts are not included and can be purchased at a local hardware store.
