(Based in the UK) I am building a fence on top of a low wall by attaching 100mm fence posts to the brick wall and then attaching my fencing to the posts.
My problem is this the fencing is quite heavy so the posts have to be sturdy. I was originally going to attach the posts to the wall with three throughbolts per post but the wall is under the control of the Environment Agency and they will not allow this.
Instead they have asked me to attach the posts with three 'cleats', a metal bracket that would wrap around the post, be attached to the post in the centre and then attached either side of the post to the wall via a small rawbolt. The actual post is 4" (100m square) but I need to add another 2" (50mm) of packing so that the posts stand clear of the wall coping.
My problem is that I cannot find such cleats, I have found a fixing band that could be bent round
but I dont know how easy that is and how strong it is. I would prefere ready made cleats, so my question is does anyone sell cleats to the size required.
