How long has pipe driven fence systems been around, and when did vinyl posts come in?
Pipe to fence post mounting techniques have been in use for the propose of fixing or attaching wood and other materials to an upright pipe driven into the ground dating back to the late 1800’s. It was not until the (PVC) vinyl fence industry grew in popularity and by the year 2000 a product became available in Canada with G. Elsasser’s patent. Specifically designed for installing a hollow vinyl fence post over an upright fixed pipe or tubing, Elsasser’s patent illustrates an X design having a square in its center. This design allowed a vertical upright pipe or tube inside the center cavity, once fastened a hollow vinyl fence post profile would sleeve over the outside, the X rib feature supported the inside walls of the hollow fence post. The design still allowed horizontal fence rails to penetrate inside the vinyl post through cut-outs without obstruction from the device.
