Post Configuration Details:
“B” – The “B” (Up or Down) post is designed to be a start or end post on angled stair runs. It has 1/2″ holes drilled on one side of the post, and 5/16″ holes offset and drilled on the other side of the post. Recommended fittings: “Angle Tension Kits” (36″ – 10 kits, 39″ – 11 kits, 42″ – 12 kits). The “Up” or “Down” options refer to the direction the cable will be traveling when it exits the post.
“B-5” – The “B-5″ post is designed to be an intermediate post on angled stair runs. It has 5/16” offset* holes drilled on both sides of the post. Recommended fittings: “Adhesive Sleeves” (quantity varies based on final height of post, typically 18).
“J” – The “J” (up or down) post is designed to be a start post on angle stair runs. One side of the post has KeyMount holes drilled into it, the other three sides of the post are completely clean (pick this post for an extra clean look). Recommended fittings: “KeyMount Kits” (quantity varies based on final height of post, typically 9).
“S” – The “S” post is shipped without any holes pre-drilled in the post itself (handrail bracket and foot still come pre-drilled). Select this post if you have an application where cables aren’t necessary but you still want to run handrail, or in a custom application and you want to drill the holes yourself.
*All offset holes will be drilled to match the angle of your kneewall. So please make sure to fill out the angle foot post form and submit it after placing your order.
The standard brackets that come with our posts are designed to work with flat bottom handrail, if you order our Round Metal Handrail 2″, we’ll automatically select rounded brackets to work with the handrail. If you have round wood handrail, or are ordering an additional post for your project please specify in the notes if you need a rounded bracket.
Stainless Steel posts complete the look with stainless steel cable. The posts are 2″ Square and they provide the foundation for a cable railing system. These you see are 304 Stainless steel which is the typical stainless used in the food industry. If you live in coastal regions you want to select the 316 stainless. Posts are available with 1/2″ holes for standard fittings and with 5/16″ holes for use as intermediate posts where the cable passes through, but does not terminate.
