Fence posts are an integral part of a fence line. There are various types of fence posts, and understanding which type you need or is the best for your application is key to help producing a successful fence run.
Types of metal posts
Most security fencing will use metal posts, but metal fence posts are also available for garden fencing. Metal posts that are well designed are strong and won't succumb to rot and insect attack. Examples of metal fence post include:
Metal security post
Metal security fence posts are usually tubular in design and made from steel. Depending on the style of fencing, panels may be connected to posts by panel connectors or metal fixings. Steel I beam posts are also used with security fencing that is over certain heights for additional support.
Metal garden fence posts
Metal garden fence posts are available in different styles. Metal is not always as aesthetically pleasing as timber, so looking for a non-intrusive design is a good idea. Styles include tubular designs where the rails of the fence attach to the metal posts, I beam style posts, or Jacksons’ unique Mi-T post that allows the fence run to be seamless from the front.
