how does one attach the 5"x 5" post to concrete? I don't see anyone that makes a concrete anchor in that size? Thanks

Asked by: johnknee
The base of the posts come with a 3 1/2" round hole in the hollow posts that goes below the top of concrete line. I take care to make sure the concrete flows into these holes as I fill the foundation hole with concrete. This locks the post base into the concrete footing. I sort of figured this out on the fly as I didn't see it explained in the instructions, but it looks like this is what the manufacturer intended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from posts required with panels These are line posts that are basic 5x5 posts that will never rot out because they have a steel beam encased by plastic. Appear to be very durable. I would have liked a 6-foot option to use with my 4-foot panels but they only come in 8.5 foot heights. Easy to cut with a sawzall. Company advises NOT to cut the tops off posts so you should cut the bottom off if using with a 4' panel and you don't want to dig a 4.5 foot deep hole.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pair To EcoStone Panels I started out with one panel and 2 posts as a test. It worked great so I am continuing on to eventually install 240 feet of this system. These composite posts work great with the EcoStone panels. Installation is simple and straightforward. I am installing the 4 foot tall panels and topping them off with a wrought iron fence so the 8 1/2 tall posts are just what I need. In some areas, I have some fill dirt at the bottom of the fence panel so I have actually extended the bottom of the posts in those cases using Simpson 6x6 concrete posts bases bolted to the fence post before setting the whole thing in the hole. The standard instructions are to set the posts in concrete first and slip in the panels after it sets. Because I am doing full height posts with 4 foot panels, this was an awkward way to do it. With the wrought iron top of the system, I dig the hole for the next post in the line. I then add the fence panel which is meant to float free in the slots for expansion and contraction. Then I screw in the wrought iron tops to the fence posts locking the whole system together, but leaving room below for the floating composite panel. Then I move on to the next hole, accomplishing about 3 panels in a short winter day before needing to pour concrete and leaving it all to set before getting back into the routine the next day. Attached are photos of the first 3rd of the project work.
