Description

Side Mount Universal Top 2″ Square Posts provide the foundation for a cable railing system. Side Mount posts are fascia mounted to preserve the maximum space on your deck, stairs or balcony.

Our cable railing posts are available in 304 Stainless Steel and Aluminum, and in multiple finishes (Brushed, Powder Coated Black, White, Pewter & Copper Vein). All holes are drilled with 3.125″ spacing, and we recommend putting a post at least every 4 feet to reduce deflection and ensure that you meet code.

For precise measurements of each of the mounting options (Standard, Inside Corner & Outside Corner), and signed and stamped engineering load specs please view our “specifications” tab.

All “LH” posts are designed to go on the left side of the stairs (when standing at the bottom looking up), and all “RH” posts are designed to go on the right side of the stairs (when standing at the bottom looking up).

Our team will reach out to you to receive the angle of your stairs if any angled posts are ordered.

Posts are manufactured 1″ designed shorter than their defined height. This will allow you to be at the exact height with our 1″ tall metal handrail, or slightly over with our 1 5/8″ tall 6000 series handrail.

The standard brackets that come with our posts are designed to work with flat bottom handrail, if you order our Round Metal Handrail 2″, we’ll automatically select rounded brackets to work with the handrail. If you have round wood handrail, or are ordering an additional post for your project please specify in the notes if you need a rounded bracket.

Mounting feet come with 4 holes for 3/8″ fasteners. The handrail bracket also comes with 6 pre-drilled holes to secure the handrail.
