How to fasten a post on a wall

Hello everyone, I'm Marco from Fenceshop, and today we will show you how to fasten a T-post for a fence on a simple wall using a special plate. The plate we will use is an iron support, hot-dip galvanized and painted green. There is also a version that is only hot-dip galvanized. The plates are available for posts with T30 and T35 sections, offering a complete range of sizes and treatments.

These plates feature a specific insertion design and a triangular iron profile that perfectly accommodates the T-post for a fence, allowing for easy insertion. Both plates have a hole at the bottom to allow water drainage in case of rain.

Main Uses

This type of accessory is ideal for residential use. It is rare to see it in sports or industrial settings. Usually, private individuals purchase this accessory to fence their own villa.

Installing the Plate

Installing the plate has a difficulty rating of about 2.5-3 on a scale of 1 to 5. To secure it to the wall, the plate has four holes that accommodate 8 mm dowels. It is important to correctly position the plates, with the flat side of the post facing the outside of the property.

The distance between the fence posts can vary between 1.80 and 2.20 meters, depending on your needs. Once the plate is fastened to the wall, it is necessary to take a post slightly longer than the desired height of the fence. For example, for a 1.50-meter high fence, it is advisable to take a 1.75-meter post and cut it later to remove the tips that might create problems during insertion.

Securing the Post

After cutting the post, simply insert it into the plate. To secure it firmly, you can use self-tapping screws, which are also available in our online shop. These screws drill and thread automatically with the use of a drill, keeping the post steady in the plate.

Threading the Wires

The T30 version of the plate has a slot that corresponds to the hole in the post, allowing the passage of the horizontal tension wire. The galvanized version, on the other hand, does not have this slot, but it is still possible to pass the wire in front of the plate.

Final Thoughts

These accessories are mainly used by private individuals to fence their gardens. There are no T-posts with welded plates, so we decided to produce standard T-posts and create these separate accessories. Although it is not a 100% professional solution, it is practical and easy to use.

Finally, it is always better to cement the posts rather than fasten them with dowels, if possible. However, with modern technologies, even dowels offer good stability. If you have an existing wall without holes, fastening might be the only solution.
