How the part fits? A 2-1/2" x 5'-6" x .055 fence post is ideal for residential chain link fence applications. It is usually used as line post.
Where is it installed? A 2-1/2" x 5'-6" x .055 fence post is usually installed every 10’. You will typically use a 2-1/2" x 5'-6" x .055 for line post for a 4’ residential chain link fence application.
How many do you need? Line posts are spaced every 10’ depending on your application. If you have a commercial application, it is not uncommon to have spacing of 8’. A good example when you would want 8’ spacing would be when you’re using privacy slats or wind screening.
All posts should be set the 2’ to 3’ into the ground depending on your application and location. All posts should be set to the center of the post hole. To have the most secure post, you will want to set all posts in concrete.
