2" Heavy Duty Gate End Post

Two gate posts are required for all gates because the inside walls of these posts are thicker and stronger than in a standard fence post and will keep gates from sagging over time. A gate post is considered an end post because it only has holes punched on one side for a section of fence to fit inside. Gates do not require holes, as they hang on hinges that are placed on the blank side of the post.

All gates require two gate posts because they have thicker inside walls than other fence posts to prevent the gate from sagging over time. When a gate post is used at the end of a line of fence, or holes are not required for a fence section, a blank post should be ordered. Gates do not need holes because they hang on hinges.

2-1/2" Rounded Gate/End Post

These heavy-duty posts are used for Delgard Aero gates only. A gate post is considered an end post because it only has holes punched on one side for a section of fence to fit inside. Gates do not require holes, as they hang on hinges that are placed on the blank side of the post.

4" Gate Post

When larger Residential gates are used, 4" gate posts are required to prevent sagging. If these posts are needed for a particular gate height, the details will be listed in the fence style notes. Unlike smaller posts, these posts can not be punched with holes and use wall mount castings for sections, which are included in the price. Industrial styles also use these posts for smaller gates.
