The “A-5″ post is an intermediate post on level runs. It has two sets of equal height holes on opposing sides of the post.
The “B-5″ post is an intermediate post on angled stair runs. The post has a high and low set of holes so that the glass can travel on an angle.
The “D” post turns a corner from an angled staircase to a level balcony turning left or right. The holes on the stair side of the post will be offset lower than the holes on the level side of the post. When you order a “D” post, we’ll ask you to specify whether you need a “D-left” or “D-right.” The “left” or “right” indicates what side of the post the holes for the level run will go on. The image above shows a “D-right” post, so the level run is travelling to the right.
The “F” post has two holes on only one side of the post. It is used as a starting or ending post on level runs. This post is often used alongside Gates for Glass Railing Systems.
The “G” post is a level corner post where one run of glass ends, and another begins (going left or right depending on your selection). It has level holes drilled on two adjacent faces of the post. The other two sides have clean faces.
The “H” post transitions from 36″ tall stair section to a 39″ or 42″ level balcony section. The post has offset holes, meaning that the angle side of the post has lower holes while the level side has higher holes.
The “I” post is a corner post that uses offset holes to transition an angled run to an elevated level run. We often recommend using a Postside Handrail Bracket to make the handrail transition much simpler. As with the “D” post, when you order an “I” post, we’ll ask you to specify whether it is an “I-Left” or “I-Right.” The “left” and “right” refer to the direction that the level run will travel. The post pictured above is an “I-Right” post.
The “J” post has three clean sides without any drilled holes. “J” posts are starting and ending posts on angled stair runs. When you order a “J” post, you’ll be asked to specify whether it is a “J-Up” or “J-Down.” The “up” and “down” refer to the direction that the glass will travel from the “J” post. A “J-Up” post will be placed at the bottom of the stairs with the glass travelling up to the next post, while a “J-Down” post will be placed at the top of the stairs with the glass travelling down to the following post. The post pictured above is a “J-Up” post.
