Domax Sp z o.o is supplying customers with its new Grundline® brand, featuring post supports for a variety of applications, along with silver, black, gold and anthracite coloured fasteners to colour match the post supports.
Headquartered in Poland, Domax explains that the post supports market and other garden fastening elements have experienced a very dynamic growth in recent years. New product types have appeared such as adjustable post supports, with additional reinforcements or supports that provide better water drainage or air flow. Domax has therefore focused on supplying customers with a complete range of branded post supports for as many applications as possible, such as ground mounted post supports and internal post supports, as well as bolt down post supports.
There are two main types of ground mounted post supports in the Grundline® range – screw-in and drive-in, which have an easy and fast assembly. Screw-in supports are mounted with a special key or manually. The drive-in type supports are mounted using a hammer and a special tool. Grundline also includes adjustable products, such as PSGR, and with additional special spacers and accessories – PWO.
“The use of internal post supports ensures the highest durability of the structure. They however require consideration at the initial stage of construction planning, which increases the time and complexity of the assembly,” explains Domax. “Grundline internal post supports are best suited for heavier structures, where maximum stability and strength of the connection is required. They come in a number of different models – from products with lateral adjustment (PSRU) to post supports with a saddle increasing the dilatation (distance) of the column from the ground (PSH). Some products, such as PSPR, also allow post height adjustment after installation.”
Also available as part of the Grundline brand, bolt down post supports offer high durability and easier assembly and can be screwed to a ‘ready made’ concrete or paving stone.
In addition to the classic square post supports, which are a very common product on the market, the Grundline brand also supplies PR supports with adjustment, PSPO for round posts, or products with screw covers for improved aesthetics (PSOL). For installation, depending on the type of the pole, Domax recommends the use of appropriate screws and bolts for concrete DMX® – for example CTO or WSPs. Grundline fasteners are available in different colours – silver, black, gold and anthracite, which can improve overall connection aesthetics by colour matching post supports.
