Heavy Duty Posts.
Posts are required in areas where the spacing between trees exceeds twenty feet, or in locations completely void of trees. Our Heavy Duty Posts, which are constructed from 1 5/8'' diameter steel tubing (black powder coated paint) are available to match our fence fabric. These can be spaced 15'-20' apart, and come with top caps that keep water out.
We have now sourced our posts from Canadian tube manufacturers and Canadian Powder Coating suppliers hence avoiding expensive transport costs from the USA. We are passing this saving onto our customers with prices that now match those in the USA.
New for FALL 2012 we have added eye bolts and clamps to each post kit to make all our posts tension cable ready.
Each post also includes a 30'' insert (post sleeve) that is first driven into the ground to make a receptacle for the post.
No need for concrete,digging holes or tall ladders when installing our 9 foot long posts.
Installation is simple.
It is best to create a pilot hole by driving a 1'' steel bar into the ground prior to driving insert. Not only do our inserts eliminate getting on a ladder or digging holes to drive posts into the ground, but they also allow for creating temporary barriers that can be easily taken down and then re-installed as necessary. A dimpled stopping point located 22'' down each insert keeps the pipe at the proper height for the fencing.
A driving cap is necessary to drive the sleeves into the ground.
The driving cap last for 50-100 posts depending on ground conditions
Driving sleves into heavy dry clay it is helpful to make a pilot hole with a crowbar and then pour water down the hole and let it soak in. The sleeves will be easier to drive into wet clay than hard baked clay.
