Free standing Post for Gate

by Doug
(Victoria, BC)

I've been looking for a post anchor for a while now, that can be anchored to a concrete wall, as I need to put up a gate in my carport.

The Titan Post Anchor looks like it might do the trick.

Can the Titan Post Anchor be attached to a concrete wall? If so, how would you recommend doing it?

Or would it not be sturdy enough to support a small gate if this is a freestanding post?

Small Fence on Retaining Wall

by John
(Victoria, BC)

We have an existing concrete retaining wall on which we would like to install a wooden fence. We'd be using 4x4 PT posts about 5' tall. The wall would be free standing and be about 25' long.

Would the Titan Post anchors be a good choice for this type of installation? We can get some good winds in Victoria and my concern is how well the anchors would hold up the fence in sustained high winds.




Editor's Comments

The 6x6 post anchor is well suited for 6' fences on retaining walls. Here is a very strong example. Just note however that this video references the Titan Max which was a prototype that we no longer manufacture.

It turned out from our engineering that we learned that the original Titan Primus actually performed better because it absorbed load differently.

Also check out this case study from someone who built a beautiful 4' cedar fence along the front of their home.

This is a very common application for the post anchor and if you want something that looks good at the front of your house, you will see why it excels.

Privacy Fence on Concrete

by Matt
(Baltimore)

I am working on installing a 6' privacy fence on top of a short (6") concrete wall, with the fence having both 4x4 and 6x6 posts.

I've seen the great testimonials on what the Titan system can do for railings, but can it stand the height of a privacy fence?

This will be located in a city location, in a back alley with no wind.
