As a homeowner, you know that the responsibility for maintaining all parts of your property falls on your shoulders. Whether you just installed a new wooden fence, or are trying to refresh the existing one, making sure that all the outside areas of your property are in tip-top shape is a lot to handle. So ensuring that your fence looks good isn’t just a practical and maintenance consideration; it’s also going to have a direct impact on the value of your property. At Atlanta Post Caps, we’re both the manufacturer and retailer of our ASA resin fence post caps, all of which are made in the United States.

Our mocha brown pyramid 6x6 fence post caps come in two sizes: Nominal and True (Actual.) The nominal or standard size is designed to fit posts that are slightly smaller than the size that is indicated on the display label. Before lumber mills had the technology and machinery to dry and cut posts quickly, they did things in a backward way. They would cut the posts in their green state (which is undried and unfinished wood.) Once the wood was dry and planed, the boards lost half an inch. True or actual means that the size stamped on the label describes the “true” size of wood posts.

  • Our nominal post caps will fit standard posts with the nominal designation whose dimensions are 5.5” x 5.5” up to 5.75” x 5.75”.
  • Our true or actual post caps will fit 6-inch posts that are true to size, including posts with measurements ranging from 6” x 6” up to 6.25” x 6.25.”
  • Our brown pyramid 6x6 post caps are made from ASA resin, a hard plastic material that car and marine vehicle makers use. It is ideal for outdoor use because it is both impact and UV resistant. None of our post caps, including our brown pyramid 6x6 fence post caps, will ever warp, fade, or incur any discoloration, and we offer a 10-year warranty on all ASA resin post caps against damage related to those issues.

ASA resin is strong and durable, and unlike wood, it’s not likely to get moldy from excessive moisture and then rot. With our ASA resin 6x6 fence post caps, your post caps won’t be subjected to continuous contraction and expansion from humidity, one of the primary reasons that wood weakens over time. Our post caps cost a fraction of the cost of comparable wood post toppers.

Our patented SNAP-CAP installation technology makes the installation process a breeze. And you’ll never see the screws!
