Primed and ready-to-go, the 4621 Primed Raised Panel Box Newel is crafted with a milled raised panel that reflects traditional furniture and cabinetry design. This 5” square newel is a great size for smaller rooms or stairways that require multiple box newels. Add the 4791 Primed Raised Panel Box Newel at the top or bottom for a complementary accent.
- Raised Panel Milled Detail
- Primed Newel Body
- Primed Shoulder Trim
- Customizable Cap
- Easy Install
To install your 4621 Primed Raised Panel Box Newel, you will need the Box Newel Mounting Kit. Follow our Installation Video to ensure a secure fit. The Box Newel may be installed either on the surface of the stair tread or beside the tread. Due to their precise edges, we have found that Box Newels look best on a square starting step.
Join handrail to your 4621 Primed Raised Panel Box Newel using a rail bolt kit. Many configurations allow handrail to mount directly into the newel; however, if your handrail is joining with your box newel on a rake, you may also require a gooseneck handrail attachment.
Splitting Box Newels
In order to maintain a consistent appearance when handrail must terminate into a wall, we offer Split Box Newels. Attach the partial newel to the wall, and your handrail can be secured like normal. If you would like your Primed Raised Panel Box Newel split in half, please select “Split in Half” in the drop-down menu above.
