Gregory Industries, Inc. launches Super C-Post for high security fencing installations. Super C-Posts provides greater strength perpendicular tot he fence line with 60,000-lb minimum yield steel and a wall thickness of 0.130 or 0.150 in. Super C-Posts are stronger than their 3-in OD or 4-in OD counterparts and have a heavier zinc coating for superior corrosion protection.
The Super C-Post system with the 2-in cover strap and complete line of fittings was designed specifically for high security installations utilizing welded mesh panels, expanded metal panels and smaller mesh chain link fence fabric.
According to James DeSmith, Gregory Product Manager, “The distinct advantage of Super C-Post is that all surfaces of the post, both inside and outside are galvanized. And when specifications call for PVC coated fence all of those surfaces are PVC coated. Tubular products are coated on the outside only, leaving the inside susceptible to condensation buildup and premature red rust.”
The other big advantage is that Super C-Posts can be driven and self-anchor without the added time and expense of digging holes or setting in concrete. Tests by state D.O.T. agencies show that a Super C-Post driven 3 feet into the ground hold as well or better than round posts set in concrete.
Super C-Posts from Gregory are coated with 4 ounces of zinc per square foot in accordance with ASTM-F1043 Type A. This is the heaviest galvanized coating available in the fence market. It’s unique design with the small open channel on the back of the post alleviates condensation buildup that leads to premature red rust, an inherent characteristic of tubular products.
