Compression Post Systems are anchored by a variable height post that compresses to both the bottom and top slab which the fence panel is affixed to. Compression offers the fastest installation time and flexibility but has some limitations; examples of this include floors with bottom to top slab heights exceeding the norm (usually beyond 13.5’) and top floor installations where no upper slab is present.
Cast in Systems utilize an embedded sleeve during the concrete pouring stage, once cast these sleeves accept a post to which the fence panel can be affixed in various ways. Once cast these systems are quick to install and offer flexibility through various attachments.
Drill in Systems are the most labour intensive. Depending on installation conditions drill in systems can sometimes take up to four fasteners to affix to the slab and require proper respiratory protection to prevent silica hazards surrounding the work area. There are certain situations where drills in systems are required and preferred, and once installed these systems provide exceptional lateral impact protection.
