Our PostMaster steel posts provide long-lasting durablity for wood fencing. Constructed of heavily galvanized structural steel, PostMaster can withstand high winds and heavy rain, and will never warp or rot — guaranteed with a 15-Year Limited Warranty.
Steel posts are available in a wide range of weights (gauges) and strengths. PostMaster posts are designed to withstand a 70-mph wind load (6' Privacy fence with posts spaced every 8') determined in accordance with the requirements of the 1994 Uniform Building Code for exposure “B”. This is the requirement for building departments in many cities. Be sure to check your local requirements and space your posts accordingly.
Wood posts rot over time and can warp or twist due to rain, wind or extreme temperatures. The integrity and appearance of a wood fence is lost after the wood posts begin to rot from exposure or termite infestation. This deterioration weakens the post, sometimes to the point where it can no longer hold the fence up. PostMaster gives an ordinary wood fence the strength of steel.
- PostMaster is made from recycled steel. Chemically treated wood fence posts raise concerns about safety and suitability for residential use, and some warranties for chemically treated posts have exclusions for ground contact.
- PostMaster's in-line design can be easily covered or concealed with matching wood, retaining the esthetics of a wood fence. It can be finished with both sides identical - a true good neighbor fence.
- PostMaster's open design keeps moisture from collecting and the heavy galvanized (zinc) coating helps prevent premature rusting. PostMaster is manufactured using a steel base material conforming to the requirements of ASTM A 653, coating designation G90 galvanized (zinc) coating.
Unlike most other steel posts which require brackets and/or fittings, PostMaster has pre-punched holes on each flange for attaching rails, eliminating the need for expensive brackets for most designs.
