Master Halco's patented PostMaster steel posts for wood fencing is engineered to provide you with the strength of steel without sacrificing the natural beauty of wood. Constructed of structural steel with a heavy galvanized coating, PostMaster can withstand high winds and heavy rains and will never rot or warp. Master Halco guarantees it - every PostMaster still post is backed by a 15-year limited warranty. PostMaster provides longevity and performance in a wood fence system which results in an uncompromised value.
Why use a steel post when I could use wood:
Because wood posts rot over time and can warp or twist due to rain, wind, or extreme temperatures. The integrity and appearance of a wood fence are lost after the wood posts begin to rot from exposure or termite infestation. This deterioration weakens the post, sometimes to the point where it can no longer hold the fence up. PostMaster gives an ordinary wood fence the strength of steel.
Will PostMaster limit my design options?
No. Your imagination only limits you. PostMaster can be incorporated with most wood fence styles, adding natural beauty and warmth that just a wood fence can provide. We specialize in using this product and can help you with a design that is right for you. We can assure proper installation practices for your local conditions.
Will steel posts withstand high winds?
Yes, if properly engineered. Steel posts are available in a wide variety of weights (gauges) and strengths. PostMaster posts are designed to withstand a 70-mph wind load (6' privacy fence with posts spaced every 8').
Will PostMasters rust?
PostMaster's open design keeps moisture from collecting, and the heavy galvanized (zinc) coating helps prevent premature rusting.
Do I have to sacrifice the look of wood?
No. PostMaster's in-line design can be easily covered or concealed with matching wood, retaining the aesthetics of a wood fence, It can be finished with both sides identical, which make for a truly good neighbor fence. Wood fences build with steel pipe posts and brackets are unsightly because they protrude from the line of the fence and are less than visually pleasing.
Is PostMaster hard to install?
No. Unlike most other steel posts which require brackets and/or fittings, PostMasters has pre-punched holes on each flange for attracting rails, eliminating the need for expensive brackets for most designs.
Will a steel post cause any adverse effects to the environment?
No. PostMaster is made from recycled steel. Chemically treated wood fence posts raise concerns about safety and suitability for residential use, and some warranties for chemically treated posts have exclusions for ground contact.
