Straight aluminum fence posts are designed to be concreted into the ground to support the panels of a fence or gate. They come in 50mm and 65mm square sections up to 2.5m long. All posts come with caps and can be powder coated to your choice of colour. Lead times apply for custom powder coated posts.
Typically your post will need to be 100mm longer than your panel plus around 500mm in the ground. So a 1.2m panel needs a minimum of 1.8m high posts. Taller panels need more in the ground. 50mm posts are ok for residential fences up to 1.2m high but for anything higher or for commercial fencing go for a 65mm post. Balustrade panels will always need a 65mm post (check the PS1 to be sure).
SHIPPING WITHIN NZ
Components - brackets, hinges, gate operators etc are generally off the shelf and we will dispatch the same day for orders before 2pm and next day for orders after. Deliveries go out by courier. We use NZC and our shipping charges are closely matched to what we get charged.
Long or Bulky Items - such as gate track, rolls of chain link mesh or barrier arms go out by Streamline freight. Delivery can take a day or two depending on your location. We do our best to charge only the actual cost.
Fence Panels and Gates - are managed by inquiry only as the logistics of production and site delivery are best discussed with you or your trades people. We have our own hiab truck that can be used to drop your order right on site but it will need careful planning. Talk to us about these kind of requests.
We're happy to ship overseas and have some regular export customers. But most of our product is heavy and freight can be very expensive for small orders. So we encourage our international customers to put through their inquiry and let us quote the freight before they make a purchase decision.
We only put the credit card payment through after we've dispatched the goods so that if there are any stockouts or delays you can be contacted to make an informed decision.
We're happy to accept returns for standard off-the-shelf product that is un-used and in its original packaging. But if you're ordering something that will be custom made for you then we'll not be able to accept a return in any circumstances. On standard items we reserve the right to charge a 15% restocking fee. Talk to us before returning goods so that we can issue you with a return authority number so our store people can match your return to your order.
