Split Ground Plates for supporting non-standard sized posts
The Friulsider Split ground plates are designed to be used on non-standard sized posts. Sawn post are often oversize, especially when wet, and have to be dried or machined to fit. Decking planed posts can differ in size, we stock 95mm, 82mm and 70mm finished planed posts. Another popular planed post size is 90mm. Standard post bases and anchors often have to packed out to provide a firm fix. Using these Friulsider split ground plates in pairs helps to solve this problem. They help to provide a quick and secure fit on planed post and sawn posts alike.
Robust design and construction
The split ground plates are made using heavy duty 3mm galvanised metal. Each plate has pre-drilled fixing holes, two for ground and four for the post (screws are NOT included). These ingenious post supports are Hot Dip galvanised finish for extra durability. Available in three sizes there is a ground plate to suit almost every application.
We would recommend fitting each split plate to the posts before post installation. By doing this you are reducing the possibility of the post moving compared to installing the plates on the ground or deck first and then fitting the post. You might also consider flush post anchors
