Posts embedded with concrete
Do you wish to embed your posts in concrete? We advise having at least two people present to perform this operation.
Installing a base plate
If your site configuration means that the first fencing board has to be partially buried (posts embedded in concrete), you will need to insert a base plate instead of the first board. Be sure to include the exposed height of the base plate when calculating the stacking height.
Installing a base rail
Each composite fencing panel must include a base rail and a top rail. The base rail and top rail have an identical profile.
Installing a halfway support profile
Regardless of the height and configuration of your installed composite fencing, it is essential that no more than 3 boards are stacked without including a halfway support profile.
Installing a composite top rail
Every composite fence should be topped with a rail. A connector sold separately connects the rail to the post. Insert the connectors on each side of the rail, in the runner provided. Each connector is fixed to the rail with the pressure screw provided (M6x12mm).
Installing an aluminium top rail
When erecting your aluminium fence, you can install a top rail above the highest board for a clean finish. An optional connector connects the rail to the post.
