We are a small privately owned company that makes and retails our own ASA resin deck and fence post caps in the United States. Our resin post caps can do things that wood posts can’t do. The main reasons for having 6x6 fence post caps are to add visual appeal to the landscape that surrounds your property, to provide more security, and to define the boundaries of your property.

Our green flat top (plateau) 6x6 fence post caps are made of ASA resin, a technologically advanced plastic that automobile and marine vehicle manufacturers use. Besides being strong and durable, these post caps are UV and impact resistant. They will never get discolored, fade, or warped. And we lead the industry with our 10-year warranty against damage related to fading, discoloring, and warping.

ASA resin is far better than wood because it doesn’t erode from constant exposure to different weather scenarios. It won’t get moldy or rot, either. Our ASA resin post caps cost far less than comparable wooden ones. On top of that, they’ll last a lot longer.

The green flat top 6x6 post caps come in two sizes: Nominal and True (or Actual.) Nominal is the term used to describe posts that were cut to their size in their green, undried, and unfinished form. Rough cut wood like this loses half an inch when it’s dried and planed because the drying process draws moisture out of the posts. The lumber industry approved these terms as a way of distinguishing between two post sizes whose labels suggest that they are equal.

  • Nominal or standard 6x6 post caps will fit posts with measurements between 5.5” x 5.5” and 5.75” x 5.75.”
  • True or actual 6x6 fence post caps will fit posts whose dimensions are between 6.0” x 6.0” and 6.25” x 6.25.”

Installation is a breeze, thanks to our SNAP-CAP installation method. Once installed, the post cap slides an inch and a half down the post. The 6.0 post caps will be 7.5 inches x 7.5 inches at the widest point. And the screws won't show after your post caps are installed.
