REPLACEMENT CAPS FOR DISCONTINUED TREX FENCING POSTS
Trex Fencing posts manufactured prior to 2010 may have a 5-1/2” x 5-1/2” profile. This profile was discontinued in 2009 and replaced with a 5” x 5” post. The post caps used for the larger post also were discontinued and the new caps will only fit the 5” post. If post caps are needed for the discontinued posts, the current 5×5 caps can be used with an internal insert (adaptor) that is set inside the cavity of the post and is attached with finish nails or screws. The tops of the posts will need to be cut down to allow the bottom of the posts caps to sit at 2-3” above the top of the top rail and the newly exposed portion of the existing post may need to be cleaned.
The new post caps will require time to weather to look similar to the older Trex material. Caps are still available in flat top and pyramid styles. Trex Fencing – FDS Fence Distributors is the supplier for the post caps and adaptors. Contact FDS at 877-700-8739 or FDS@TrexFencing.com.
