StairSupplies 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.
This particular intermediate post is 3/16″ thick x 1 1/4″ wide x 42″ tall of solid 316 marine grade stainless steel. It comes pre-bent on the top and pre-drilled with 12 holes at our standard 3 1/8″ cable spacing. The post is designed to be cut down from the bottom on the job site to match the height of your existing handrail. It can work on both level & stair applications.
The 3/16″ intermediate comes with all the mounting hardware and screws necessary to install the post, and a foot cover to give it a finished look.
