Product Description

Stair Supplies offers intermediate cable railing posts to help reduce deflection between structural wood posts. You need structural wood posts every 8 feet to ensure your system has the strength it needs (if your wood posts are spaced further than 8ft you need to add additional structural posts before using this product). Intermediate posts ONLY assist in reducing cable deflection, they provide no structural support. Intermediate posts can NOT be used with Stair Supplies 2″ Surface Mount Posts.

The 1″ x 2″ intermediate posts is available for 3 heights – 36″, 39″ or 42″ (actual post heights are 1 1/16″ less, additional height comes from the handrail), in one configuration “A-5″ for level applications. All 1″ x 2” intermediates come pre-drilled with 5/16″ holes at our standard 3 1/8″ cable spacing.

Can the post height be adjusted by cutting are the flanges removable? We are using a cedar 2X6 on top for a railing and some structural posts are in place now 3hat are 34.5″ to come up to the desired +36″ top of rail height.

I want to start prepping my wooden posts before other materials arrive. How high off the deck surface is the center of the first hole on the 1×2 intermediate posts?

Hi Bennet,

The bottom hole on the 1″ x 2″ Intermediate Cable Railing Post is 3-9/16″ on center above the mounting surface.
