The post will be custom made based on the height of your knee wall, and the angle of your staircase. Please fill out this Angle Foot Post Specification Form, in order to ensure we manufacture your post correctly.
Posts are available in multiple material types (304 Stainless Steel, 316 Stainless Steel & Aluminum), and in multiple finishes (Brushed, Powder Coated Black, White, Pewter & Copper Vein). Guide to getting started with Viewrail.
Post Configuration Details:
“B” – The “B” (Up or Down) post is designed to be a start or end post on angled stair runs. It has 1/2″ offset* holes drilled on both sides of the post. Recommended fittings: “Angle Tension Kits” (36″ – 10 kits, 39″ – 11 kits, 42″ – 12 kits). The “Up” or “Down” options refer to the direction the cable will be travelling when it exits the post.
“B-5” – The “B-5″ post is designed to be an intermediate post on angled stair runs. It has 5/16” offset* holes drilled on both sides of the post. Recommended fittings: “Adhesive Sleeves” (quantity varies based on final height of post, typically 18).
“J” – The “J” (up or down) post is designed to be a start post on angle stair runs. One side of the post has KeyMount holes drilled into it, the other three sides of the post are completely clean (pick this post for an extra clean look). Recommended fittings: “KeyMount Kits” (quantity varies based on final height of post, typically 9).
“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 are necessary but you still want to run handrail, or in a custom application and you want to drill the holes yourself.
*All offset holes will be drilled to match the angle of your kneewall. So please make sure to fill out the angle foot post form and submit it after placing your order.
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.
Stainless Steel posts complete the look with stainless steel cable. The posts are 2″ Square and they provide the foundation for a cable railing system. These you see are 304 Stainless steel which is the typical stainless used in the food industry. If you live in coastal regions you want to select the 316 stainless. Posts are available with 1/2″ holes for standard fittings and with 5/16″ holes for use as intermediate posts where the cable passes through, but does not terminate.

How long can you have cable before adding a new post? In other words, what is the recommended min/max expanse between posts? Thanks!
What are the complete size specs of this post? More specifically what are the dimensions of the bottom mounting square? Thank you.
Hi, I would like to know what is the difference between “J” up and down? I know I need a B post for my angled stair runs that only measures 5′ 1″ and on the bottom on the run I need a J post but I have doubts if it needs to be J up or down (both posts need to be angled) thank you
Why can’t I order an “I” post? I have a small “L” shape at top of stairs, I want to start there with an “F” then go to an “I” that will begin my descent down the stairs. After 4-5 “B” can I end it with a “J-up”? All of which is a moot point if I cannot order an “I” post.
Thank you for asking, Sandy. It is likely that you would need to select a “D” post instead, because an “I” post is not available in 36″. The only limitation to the “D” post is that you cannot use a metal handrail due to the lack of space for a postside handrail bracket.
If you prefer the metal handrail, then we suggest that you switch to a 39″ post system. This would then allow you to select an “I” post and metal handrail option.
If you need any further assistance, you can also contact us directly at email@example.com. We would be more than happy to assist you in designing or reviewing your Viewrail project.
When I place an order, how do I submit the form with the dimension (height and angle) of the posts that I need?
Thank you, Shui. You can send this form to firstname.lastname@example.org.
