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.
