Wrought iron newel 1 3/16” square x 48″ tall.
The 16.5.8 Iron Newel is a plain square newel.
These are used instead of pin top wood newels to support over the post handrail systems.
“Ash Grey” newels are currently only available in Hollow.
Purchase our 16.2.3 Iron Newel Mounting Kit to firmly fasten your newel to your stairs.
How would a wood handrail be attached to this newel. I see the round top section but can’t tell how it attaches.
You would need to purchase one of our Handrail Fittings, specifically you’ll probably want a Start Easing, Left or Right Hand Turnout, Left or Right Hand Turnout. Each of these fittings have a hole in the bottom that fits over the round portion of the iron newel.
Is the satin black newel hollow or solid??
How do you connect these posts to the handrail. Is there a hole at the top or bottom ? Can you proved a copy of the exact specifications of this product.
Each of our handrail fittings that are designed to start a handrail section (e.g. Volutes, Start Easings, Turnouts, Opening Cap) come with a pre-drilled hole to attach the newel. If you need to attach the newel to a straight section of handrail, simply drill a hole into the bottom of the handrail to match the top of the iron newel. Alternatively, you could purchase a Tandem Cap which will have a pre-drilled hole in the bottom.
