When are 4" Sq. or 6" Sq. gate posts necessary?
All styles of ornamental aluminum fence.
The size of the gate will determine the proper size posts to use. See the pages for the style you are interested in for specifics. 4" sq. and 6" sq. posts are not punched to accept the horizontal rails of the fence; instead wall mount brackets are necessary to connect the fence section to these posts.
