Steel posts for your garden
Do you feel lost?
- Steel post?
- Iron post?
- Metal post?
Which is what?
Not to worry, all these posts are made of steel. Steel contains iron and iron is a metal.
For more explanation read: The difference between iron, steel and metal.
Personally, I don't care what steel posts are called. We have been selling these steel posts for years. I have tested them myself, of course. Among other things, with large shade cloths attached to them, on top of a mountain in French Burgundy, full in the wind, no problem.
The finish is good, the quality is good, these steel posts cannot be broken. (Probably with a bulldozer, but I haven't tried that ;-))
Our steel post collection roughly consists of the following different types:
- Steel pole
- Steel fence post square 8x8cm (with or without base)
- Steel fence post square 45x45mm (with or without base)
- Fixing materials for metal fence posts
Each type has variants for pouring into concrete or digging in.
Or steel posts with base to screw onto your terrace, balcony, stairs, wherever you like.
The steel poles are hot-dip galvanised (galvanised) and powder coated in black-grey RAL-7021.
This treatment ensures that the steel poles are extremely resistant to all weather conditions.
The steel poles have a diameter of 42.4 mm and are sealed with a plastic cap.
The steel poles are ideal for a glass balustrade with tempered glass (6 mm) or safety glass (8.6 mm). Special glass clamps that fit the steel posts are also available.
Available in 2 different models.
- Steel pole with base H96cm
- Steel pole for casting into concrete H186cm
Steel post square 8x8cm with base
The steel post square 8x8cm are hot-dip galvanised and now also available in powder-coated black RAL-9005. The metal post is closed off with a black plastic cap.
The thickness of 2mm makes the steel posts extremely strong, allowing you to use them for almost anything in the garden. Here are a few examples:
- steel fence posts
- metal post for trellis
- metal post for shade cloth
- metal fence posts for a balustrade
Glass clamps for square posts can of course be included to create a beautiful, modern glass fence.
Available in 2 different models and various heights:
- Metal fence posts square with base 8x8cm
- Metal fence posts square for casting into concrete 8x8cm
Steel posts for a camera
These metal posts square solve your security camera problem!
As camera posts, they are extremely practical. You cast them into concrete or screw the camera pole with base plate onto the ground.
When you remove the cap, the camera post is open at both ends and you can easily pull the cables through.
Drill a small hole in the side and secure your camera. Just plug it in, put the cap on and you're done.
The camera steel post can of course also be used for your doorbell or intercom at the gate on your driveway.

Steel posts square 45x45mm
The metal posts square 45x45mm are ideal for glass balustrades or in combination with the CUBIC balustrade panels.
Of course, these steel posts are also hot-dip galvanised and part of them powder-coated black RAL-9005. The metal post is closed with a black fence post cap or with an upper part for mounting a handrail.
The thickness of 2 mm makes the steel posts extremely strong, allowing you to use them for almost everything in the garden.
These metal fence posts are available with a regular top, or a top on which our mahogany wooden railings fit perfectly. So you can easily create a balustrade finished with a handrail on top.
We even have 1 steel post with a 36° angle so that you can easily create a banister on your deck stairs.
Glass clamps for square steel posts can of course be included to make a beautiful, modern glass fence.
Fixing materials for metal fence posts
What is the difference between iron, steel and metal?
It's actually quite simple
- Iron is the iron ore found in nature.
- Steel is an alloy (mixture) of iron, carbon and other elements to make it stronger.
- Metal is the name for a group of elements..
- Ferrous metals are metals that contain iron.
- Non-ferrous metals do not contain iron. Think of copper, silver and gold.
Our metal fence posts are made of steel.
In very large blast furnaces, iron is melted and mixed with carbon and other elements.
That molten steel is then poured into very large slices that are rolled out into a long band of steel, and that is then rolled up into large rolls (Just like you roll out a ball of dough to make your pizza!)
At the metal fence post factory, the coil passes through a large machine that folds square or round steel posts from it. The seam between the 2 ends of the steel strip is welded shut.
Additional parts are then welded onto the metal fence post, such as the post base.
The metal fence post is then galvanised and sent to our warehouse.
What is a galvanised metal fence post or a hot dip galvanised steel post?
Our steel posts are galvanised to protect them from rust.
Galvanisation can be done in several ways. Our metal fence posts are hot-dip galvanised:
- First, the metal fence posts are well cleaned, degreased and dried.
- Then the metal fence posts go into a 460°C hot bath of molten zinc. When the molten zinc comes into contact with the metal post, a chemical reaction takes place, causing the protective zinc layer to adhere to the metal fence post.
- The galvanised steel post can then cool and dry and is ready for shipment.
At first, galvanised steel posts look like shiny silver. With contact with air, the surface will become dull over time and the colour will become more greyish. The colour will not be completely even but a little spotty.
Do you think a galvanised metal fence post doesn't look nice?
Then we can powder-coat the metal post!
Yes, great, and what is powder coating then? Read on below ;-)
What is powder coating?
Why powder coating?
You can buy some of the steel posts powder coated from us::
- It has a nicer colour than the ordinary galvanised steel post, although of course colour remains a matter of taste.
- Powder coating adds another protective layer to your galvanised steel post. Its lifespan is therefore even longer!
How does powder coating work?
- Powder coating involves spraying a layer of powdered paint onto the metal fence post using a spray gun.
- The metal fence post is then put in the oven.
- The heat causes the powder to first become liquid and then viscous.
- It then hardens into a beautiful, durable coating!
