CAST POSTS

Our cast posts are from traditional gate post designs. Cast posts can be paired up to any style of fencing and gates, with or without finials.

We offer two designs of cast post; Octagonal and Round.

Matching Existing Cast Post Designs

Our traditional gate post designs can be cast from existing designs.

At the Stanway Estate we were asked to restore the existing estate fencing and we also required to restore the original gates & replicate the cast posts, most of which had been lost.

To replicate the cast posts we used our in house CAD software to create an accurate model of the existing posts and finials, we then had them machined through a specialist company.  This approach was considerably cheaper than casting new posts.

For a client in Somerset we were asked to install some field gates that required bespoke post tops from an existing pattern.  Using the existing post top design we were able to create a new onion shaped pattern for castings.

Restoration

We have the facilities to restore tired cast posts.  We are able to shot blast existing metalwork to remove old finishes such as years of paint, pollution and corrosion, returning them to their former glory. 

We will assess the conditional of metalwork first and advise on the best course of action to take.

Finishes

Cast posts are available in bare metal or painted.  Our standard finish is semi-gloss black, we can paint to any RAL colour off the paint chart.

Installation

Our cast posts are available supply and install and supply only.  We are able to install and deliver throughout the UK.
