Maintenance tips

If properly maintained, posts can last for many years, but general wear and tear could reduce the life of your posts.

To protect against this, regular maintenance is essential. This includes checking bolts are secure after moving the posts, regular checks for fixtures and fittings and using touch-up paint to help prevent rust spots on steel posts.
