Post Caps

Variations Of Post Caps

Plastic Post Caps
Plastic Post Caps are a less flexible versions of our 'PVC' type caps, manufactured in a number of industry standard sizes to suit all common metal fence posts. Offered in a Grey finish from standard (other colours may be available), these offer a great balance of aesthetic and protection properties, preventing ingress and finishing off an otherwise, exposed internal section of a post. PVC Post Caps may be used over these in situations where the cap may need to be removed, as an easier to remove option than these Plastic ones.
PVC Post Caps
Our PVC type Metal Fence Post Caps are an excellent solution for finishing, protecting and covering a fence post. Each size is offered in Grey RAL colour finish as standard which matches most standard post types (such as road signs), we also ensure we keep an industry standard sizing in stock to provide you with the best possible choice for your money and post. PVC type Post Caps have a slight amount of flexibility within their design that allows them to be used with a range of diameters rather than just the one (unlike their plastic counterparts) this also allows for a tighter, sturdier fit to your post preventing it from coming or being knocked off easily after they have been installed to your application.
Budget Post Caps
Budget Post Caps are our newest and most cost effective product option, designed for use with a metal or wooden fence post. Being offered in an increased number of sizes and colour ways gives this range it's main benefit, and can also be used for a huge number of other uses, such as for a piece of pipe work, or tubing rather than a post. Although not available in specific industry sizes, the huge number of diameters available usually covers most applications.

Our Post Caps or 'Plastic Post Caps' as they are also known, are available manufactured from either an LDPE or PVC and finished in a RAL Grey unless specified otherwise. Typically installed as a finishing element to a metal fence post, these caps offer the simultaneous benefit of preventing the ingress of water, moisture and dirt that can otherwise effect the lifespan of your post. All of our Post Caps are UV resistant to prevent discolouring, and produced to industry standard sizes including 3 inches (76.2mm), 4 inches (101.6mm) and above, with smaller sizing also available in some instances. 

We recommend the use of PVC Post Caps for their added flexibility, where-as the LDPE versions offer increased rigidity in comparison and at a slightly lower cost. For larger projects where price sensitivity is important, we recommend the use of LDPE Plastic Post Caps over their PVC counterparts because of this.
