“Please ensure that you are careful in making your selections for the End Post options.
An “End Post” is the post that is at the end of a railing run. Or gate. Clearly a gate will have either 1 or 2 posts on either side of the gate. A railing run of any size will also have End Posts as Left or Right or both or none.
The number of posts is critical to the size of your panels and pricing. If the post selections are wrong then you will find your panels are either too big or too small, which will mean that one of your panels or all panels will need to be remade.”
To identify the Left and/Or Right posts for a gate or railing run then please consider the posts location left, right or both from the perspective looking from the street or outside of the house or enclosed area.”
Posts may be either 4,5,6,7,8 cms square each. The selection will have an impact on your railing panel width sizes and costs but also will impact on the look and feel of your railings. Too thick and the railings can look too small. We find that 40mm2 is best for shorter gates and railings and 50mm2 is best for tall railings and tall gates. You may go for the extra size to give a feeling of more security or if you simply have a preference for thicker posts to enable a larger post with a larger base size to be added, so that the base of a post cap does not go over the post top width.
Your posts may be selected as above or below ground. This will impact on price but also select for the terrain that you are to be installing onto. This option does not effect the railing panel size or railing panel cost.
