Newton Security Cage Post

Post and Accessories for Newton Security Caging

All Cross-guard by Newton security caging requires a framework. The frame adds strength and provides a structure for fastening the panels and doors.

Typically vertical posts are secured to the floor at nominal 8' intervals (for an 8' x 8' x 8' cage) using a bracket and screw combination.

Horizontal posts are attached around the top of the verticals forming a square. All posts are 2" x 2", 16 gauge tubular steel in accordance with ASTM A513 ** and painted with a powder coat, polyester paint.

Options for sizes can be seen in the attached tables.

Note:

ASTM A 513 specifies a straightness of 1/16" per 36" length. Additional handling and painting can add to this. To avoid serious bowing, it is recommended to keep posts to less than 96" if possible, especially when used in a vertical application.

Post assembly

The frame adds strength and provides a solid connection to which panels and doors may be fastened.
