  3. Aluminum Post Charts

Also available on each post product pricing page, these charts are minimum recommendations. Longer in ground cemented posts should be ordered for frost line regions. Always check your local building codes. Posts lengths can be easily trimmed on-site.

You never need to install 2 posts next to each other. Prepunched line, corner, end and t (3-way) posts do not add to your fence barrier length because fence panels are inserted and set into each prepunched post. Non-Punched, blank Posts are used for angles, stair stepping and heavy rackable panel connections and do add to your barrier via aluminum straight, horizontal and vertical swivel mounts. See: Accessories. The following is only a guide and adjustments should be made based upon application, region and local building codes.
