Answer This Question

A:  Hi Shelly. Unfortunately, I cannot answer your question because I don't know what load weights your project entails. However, I can share with you these posts are commonly used for structural porch roof support and usually place every 6' for a stick framed roof. Thank you for your question. Dan H. (EZ Handrail Dev.

    Q:Can 4 of these posts be used to hold 12' x 16' shade sail? ... I already have 4 feet fence reeling on composite deck thinking to replace the 4 feet corner posts with these 8 feet ones.

    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi Adnan. Yes, these posts have successfully been used to hold shade sails and other sunshade fabrics. Of course, there are many variables that determine the long-term success or failure of this type of setup such as: wind loads, fabric density, slopes, etc. but instead of making it into a huge engineering riddle, take a commonsense approach. 1. Properly anchor the 5" x 5" x 1/4" welded base plate using the best anchoring fasteners available for your mounting surface. 2. Fasten the fabric cables using 4" through bolts going through both walls of the post and oversized washers that allow cables to travel freely in wind loads without deforming the post or fastener. 3. Take note of the flex on the post in standard conditions and determine if another post (possibly in the middle of the 16' run) may be required to handle future loads. I believe you will be comfortably shaded for many years. These are the same posts we used when manufacturing patio covers in Florida for over 20 years. Best of luck! Thank you for your unique question. Dan H. (EZ Handrail Dev. Team)

            Product was used as place to land string lighting over a patio. It looks much better than a piece of 4x4 pressure treated lumber would in this application. Product shipped with hardware that would be necessary to attach it to a deck. I bought some galvanized hardware to attach it to a concrete slab that I poured specifically for this installation. Home Depot delivered it right to my home for no shipping charge.
