What about gate posts?

Gate posts are set according to the gate, allowing the gate to travel without encountering an obstruction.  When setting gate posts, consider the following:

  1. When setting swing gate posts, consider the highest elevation of the grade below the gate that the leaf will encounter as it completes its swing from full closed to full open.  Whatever the difference in the elevation from that point to where the gate post is being set, add that to your overall post height.
  2. When setting cantilever gate posts, consider the highest elevation that the gate will encounter as it completes its travel from full open to full closed.  Whatever the difference in the elevation from that point to where the gate post is being set, add that to your overall post height.  Remember cantilever gates must roll on a level plane so the two roller posts should be set to the same elevation creating a level plane.
