Rectangular Posts (also known as Gate Posts) are posts that can serve several purposes within a pool fence installation. Rectangular Posts are most commonly used as Gate Posts on a gated entry and can also be used as terminating end if you are not able to attach your pool fence to a wall/structure.
Choosing a Post to match your fence:
If you are shopping for rectangular posts, make sure to choose the post reinforcement type that matches your fence pole type. Ex: if you are installing a 1 Inch Pole, choose 1 Inch Posts. If you are installing a Peg Pole Fence, choose Peg Posts.
Adding a Gate to your Fence:
If you are purchasing rectangular posts for a gate, you will need to purchase 2 posts per gate. One is used on each side of the gate frame.
Why is a 5 foot rectangular post not 5 feet tall?
When choosing parts to go with your pool fence, we often refer to the height of the mesh fence to let you know what parts go with what height of fence. Ex: a 4 Foot Fence has 4 Foot parts, a 5 Foot Fence has 5 Foot parts.
When it comes to the actual dimensions of a part, we talk about the dimensions from the bottom of the post to the top of the pole. This actual measurement accounts for the mesh height, the material that goes into the ground and the material at the top of the post beyond the mesh height. So most parts’ actual dimensions will be longer than just “4 Foot” or “5 Foot”.
