The Aluminum Slim Side Mount is a new improvement on steel Slim Side Mounts. The light weight and dovetail mounting plate make for a very easy install and provide the cleanest possible look for a rod railing system. Slim Side Mount posts are fascia mounted to preserve the maximum space on your deck, stairs or balcony, and have no exposed mounting plates for a very simple installation. Our pressed in top creates a seamless post-to-handrail transition.
The Aluminum Slim Side Mount can be finished with ether a standard powder coat, or a 10 year warrantied Fluoropolymer powder coat capable of marine grade applications. All holes are drilled with 3.125″ spacing, and we recommend putting a post at least every 4 feet to reduce deflection and ensure that you meet code. Guide to getting started with Viewrail.
All “LH” posts are designed to go on the left side of the stairs (when standing at the bottom looking up), and all “RH” posts are designed to go on the right side of the stairs (when standing at the bottom looking up).
Please note: The post, dovetail mounting plate, and top bracket are included. The hardware will need to be purchased separately.
