Slim Side Mount Universal Top Square 2″ Cable Railing Posts

Clear

Description

Slim Side Mount Universal Top 2″ Square Posts provide the cleanest possible look for a cable railing system. Slim Side Mount posts are fascia mounted to preserve the maximum space on your deck, stairs or balcony, and have no exposed mounting plates for a very simple installation.

Slim Side Mount Posts come with a 3/8″ thick plate that is hidden by the post. That plate, and the backside of the post have 3/8″ holes, while the front side has 13/16″ holes that can be plugged with the included “Slim Post Plugs”. We also include mounting hardware for two types of applications, one where there are 3, 2×8’s available which is a 3/8″ x 6″ lag bolt. Alternatively we include an identical plate to the one on the post that can be used with 2, 2×8’s and the included 3/8″ x 4″ bolts, nuts & washers. Whatever the application, we provide the necessary installation hardware.

Our cable railing posts are available in multiple material types (304 Stainless Steel & 316 Stainless Steel), 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.

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).

“S” – The “S” post is shipped without any holes pre-drilled in the post itself (handrail bracket and foot still come pre-drilled). Select this post if you have an application where cables aren’t necessary but you still want to run handrail, or in a custom application and you want to drill the holes yourself.

* All offset holes are drilled at 40 degrees (the typical angle of a staircase), these 40 degree holes work with angles between 36 – 42 degrees. If you staircase falls outside those angles custom hole drilling can be requested at no additional charge.

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.
