What is the maximum width of the cedar or composite boards placed between 2 end posts in the ground?

Asked by: Randy53
Hi Randy53 and thanks for reaching out. When using any 5/4th wood board, the maximum span between posts is 6 feet. When using any 1’’ composite board, the maximum span between posts is 5 feet to avoid warping over time. Thank you and please have a wonderful day. HOFT Team.

What would be the best way to anchor these posts in soil without using concrete? Also can these be cut? I’m looking to build a 5 foot tall by 8 feet wide fence.

Asked by: surfsnowskate
Hi surfsnowskate and thanks for reaching out. Concrete must be used, because no fence can hold up long term in the ground without concrete. All our HOFT Posts can be cut to your desired height, but please be sure when cutting HOFT posts to your desired length, to only use a circular or miter saw with a carbide blade. IMPORTANT NOTE: HOFT Posts have threaded screw tubes, to attach the base plate, at one post end only; be sure to cut the top end of the post (an ‘’arrow’’ sticker indicates the bottom end), so the anchor plate can be easily screwed to the post afterwards. Thank you and please have a wonderful day. HOFT Team.

Hi there, looking to space out the Posts with 8' boards. Can this be used that way. also, what size fence board is to be used in the channel?

Asked by: RRDesign
Hi! Thanks for reaching out! You must use 5/4 wood boards (exactly 1'' finished) or 1'' composite boards. Maximum span in between posts is 6ft for wood and 5ft for composite boards if you want to avoid any major warping of boards. Thanks, HOFT Team

Do you have to use the spacers? I would like the fence board to be tight together

Asked by: ray808
Hi ray808, Thanks for reaching out to us! Having the ½’’ HOFT spacers between each board acts as nails and will be more than enough for the wind flow, and it’s also safer to make sure that nobody can climb the fence etc, however we have clients that did double on the spacers and made their project work for them, but aesthetically you would see the post.

Is there not a corrosion issue installing these aluminum posts into concrete?

Asked by: Senderwick
Hi Senderwick, Thanks for your question! Our first concern is always quality and integrity of our products and our services, therefore our aluminum HOFT posts are properly powder coated and it gives all the protection needed, so no issues to worry about. Thanks, HOFT Team!

Do I need to purchase anything additional to install in ground (grass)? Or does everything come with the kit included?

Asked by: Motts
Hi, Thank you for your question regarding the installation of our 96'' post into the ground. The things you will need to buy are the wood or composite and the concrete, you won't need anything else. Here's how you can install these post in case you need it, you must dig a 9'' diameter x 36''hole x 48''deep, pour concrete into it and then slide the post into the concrete when it is still liquid. The post needs to be approximately 22 "in concrete and 74" above ground to make a 6 "high fence. Hope you will have great success with your project! HOFT Team!
