Post Size Guide
This guide assists in selecting post sizes for EziScreen fences, screens, and gates.
The EziScreen aluminium posts have 2mm side walls, a central reinforcing rib for stiffness, and two screw flutes allowing matching bolt-down post feet to be attached.
How long should a concrete set (in-ground) post be?
A rule of thumb is that at least one third of the post, or 60cm, should be below the ground, whichever length is greater. For example, if a fence is 180cm tall, then you would need posts at least 240cm long. If a fence is 100cm tall, then you would need posts at least 160cm long. If you are setting your posts in soft soil, or you are in a high wind area, you might require longer posts and bigger holes.
This is a general guide for selecting post sizes and it might not be suitable for your project. Larger, longer posts may be required for commercial and heavy duty applications. If in doubt, size up, and seek advice from an engineer.
This guide applies to EziScreen fences and gates only. It should not be used for other EziScreen products or other fencing systems.
