How to install pillars?

ORSOL gate pillars are decorative elements, not structural elements. Only the concrete filling inside the pillar elements will bear the weight of the gate.

Quelques conseils techniques lors de vos travaux


A solid foundation

Create a foundation reinforced with twisted irons.


Fitting the bushel

Position the cribs with the interlocking lip facing upwards, checking that the pillars are correctly aligned and applying a seal of polyurethane mastic between each crib.


Interior protective film

Place a film of polyethylene foam (supplied in the kits) inside the bushels over the full height of the pillar.



Fill the pillar with concrete at a rate of 1 ml / 24 hours. Level the surface at the last bushel.


Gluing the bonnet

Glue the cap in place after the concrete filler has dried.



To secure the gate, use a hole saw and concrete drill bits. No percussion drill. Drill the concrete filler.


Dowel fixing

Fix the dowels in the concrete filler with chemical sealant.



Spray waterproofing on all pillars for better protection.
