Galvanised post bases are also named supports or shoes. By applying post bases you can aid the prevention of rot and prolong the life span of your fence posts. They will allow moisture to leave the posts as they are not straight in the ground as traditionally they would be set in concrete foundations. post bases permit the post to be raised above the ground, whilst continuing to be anchored tightly to the concrete foundation, managing to keep the water from the post.
Right here at Canopy Products, you can find a great range of galvanised post bases to fit pretty much all sizes of post. Our whole range of post bases may be built in brickwork, cemented into place or mounted to a concrete slab.
At Canopy Products, our plate post bases are designed to be resistant against exposure to weather conditions. By maintaining the timber post higher than ground level away from the wet parts and making it possible for the post foot to dry after precipitation it helps avoid decay and prolong the life span of the post.
Our post shoe bases (or cup post bases) are designed to be resistant against weather conditions. Similar to the other post bases, maintaining your timber post above ground level helps ensure moisture will drain out and this really helps to protect against rot.
Our Galvanised Post Bases Liverpool will be fixed to cement using 2 No 100 mm x M10 thru-bolts or may be concreted into your foundation. Fixing kits are offered with many post bases, see the specs per product.
Cup post bases are actually 60mm deep, 100mm x 100mm x 3mm. 2 No 10mm holes are drilled in the cup. The 93.5mm x 93.5mm x 3mm sole plate having 12mm drain and 35mm post hole are laser cut to profile. The 150mm x 150mm x 3 mm base plate is laser cut which has a 35mm post hole and 2 No x 12mm holes on the edges on the base plate for getting fixing bolts if required. The cup is welded to the base plate and the steel tube.
