The MG 1800 posts used in all the Palmako Modular Garden modules are made from glulam timber with black galvanization. We also recommend using them for building fences. Upon erecting fences it is also possible to replace the Modular Garden posts with regular solid wood or glulam posts and attach with different pole bases or to choose longer posts and dig the ends into the ground. To achieve the most accurate and beautiful result, black galvanised MG pole bases specially designed for this series should be used for installing the fence. The MG pole base facilitates height adjustment of the post and tighter panel fastening than by using other fastening methods. The benefit of a glulam timber post is its stability and durability in all weather conditions – a post made from glulam timber does not expand, shrink or twist. The appearance of unaesthetic longitudinal fissures caused by shrinking or expanding is also avoided.
For fastening on a terrace, concrete or stone surface use the “Palmako” pole base, a pole base with a rectangular plate or U-anchor. The MG pole base is meant to be used with the MG post only.
Installation in the ground
If you would like to install the post in the ground, a ground spike can be used. It is also possible to sink the post into the ground and to reinforce it with concrete. When digging in the ground it should be considered that a minimum of 1/3 of the post must be in the ground and that it is more difficult to adjust the height of the post installed in the ground. When digging the psot in the ground, it should be considered that moisture from the soil may damage wood and thus shorten the service life of the post.
