What is a post anchor?

By There are no tags 0 comments

A fence can create an attractive, secure and safe boundary around your property, but like all great things a truly perfect fence can only begin with a great base!

What is a post anchor

A post anchor is a steel base which can be securely fastened to the ground using bolts (usually high tensile bolts). Once fastened to the ground the post anchor can then accept a fence support. Fence supports can either be wooden, steel or concrete.

D&L Hardware Post Anchors

Our post anchors come in a number of configurations from the standard bolt down type to models which actually included a large steel spike for use in soft dirt conditions. Being located at ground level we manufacture each post anchor from high-quality, durable steel which is created to prevention corrosion.

The methods we use to prevent corrosion are hot-dip galvanising and powder coating. Usually Hot-dip only are used for commercial applications while a powder coated finish is more attractive and suitable for residential use.

Manufactured to meet your requirements

Our factories here in China already manufacturer a wide range of steel post anchors for use when installing fences, but if it happens we don’t have a model which fits your requirements we can also produce items to meet your specification requirements.

Galvanized Versus Powder Coat

By There are no tags 0 comments

Steel products need to be fully treated and protected from corrosion, rust and premature failure. Two of the more popular methods of treating steel include galvanizing and powder coating. In this article we take a look at Galvanized Versus Powder Coat.

What is Galvanizing?

Galvanizing is the process of heating zinc in a vat to high temperatures to create a molten zinc material. This molten Zinc is then applied to steel (correct cleaning and preparation of the steel must be taken care of before galvanizing). Once coated the steel piece is removed from the vat, cooled in a cooling pool and is then ready to be used.

Advantages of galvanizing

  • It is a tried and tested method, one of the oldest in existence.
  • Fast and cost-effective.
  • Creates a thick, durable layer of protection.
  • Perfect for use on tools and steel products designed for outdoor use.

What is Powder Coat?

Powder Coat is a dry powdered paint available in a number of RAL and PANTONE colour options. The powder is applied to a steel (or any metal) part with an electrostatic gun then heated. Once heated the powder forms a glossy, continuous barrier between the metal part and the outside elements.

Advantages of Powder Coat

  • Attractive finish.
  • Colour choices.
  • Fast and easy to coat and cure.
  • Overspray can be reused.

Which is better?

The simple answer is that both powder coat and galvanised treatments have the pros and cons. Generally though both will offer years of corrosion free use and, if applied correctly, will continue to look good and protect for years after initial application. Also, it is worth noting that Galvanised products can be powder coated too to further protect a part.
