When purchased alone this post will come with the hinges pre-welded spaced properly for a 6 foot tall swing gate sold by GateCrafters.com. If purchased with a custom gate, 3-rail gate, custom gate frame or forestry gate this post will be customized and built with your driveway gate production. This single post measuring 8' x 3" x 3" or 10' x 4" x 4" depending on post option selected. This includes hinges for easy installation. It can accommodate both pull-to-open and push-to-open setups, as well as gates that hinge on either the left or the right.
Installation requires setting the post approximately 2' deep into the ground , so the height will be about 6' - 8' after installation (depending on post size selected). Post comes finished in black with a top post cap.
The posts are made of 11 gauge steel (wall 1/8" thick) that has been galvanized and powder coated black. The posts also come with a standard black post cap.
Steel that has been galvanized has many advantages. First, it is the most cost-effective, environmentally friendly option. Galvanization is one of the least expensive coating options available and powder coating is the most environmentally friendly. With both coatings, you are saving money in the long run and maintaining the green standard that GateCrafters.com is known for.
Having posts that are galvanized and powder coated also ensures that your posts are at their peak strength and able to offer weather-resistant protection for years to come. Galvanized steel is one of the strongest steels on the market and can last for up to 25 years (longer in rural areas).
Requiring little maintenance, galvanized steel can withstand construction damage and all kinds of weather conditions while protecting every inch of your posts. The additional powder coating only strengthens the durability of the steel and adds to its aesthetic value.
