The foundation of any cable rail system is where the cables begin and end. Our DECK MOUNT TERMINAL POST is engineered specifically to withstand the applied stress when each wire rope is tensioned. Each aluminum railing post is manufactured from 6063 T6 aluminum with internal webbing. Avoid competitor hollow posts that are designed for glass infill. When the cables are tightened in these cable railings, the posts tend to deflect, so the installer must decrease cable tension to reduce the bending.

Terminal posts come either pre-drilled with powder-coated holes which eliminates many hours of installation labor, or un-drilled which are used in stairs.

The DECK MOUNT INTERMEDIATE POST mounts directly to the top surface by attachment hardware. Usually these are lag screws or concrete anchors (sold separately).

SPECIFICATIONS

  1. Available for either 36" or 42" rail heights. 2 3/8" square
  2. 13 9mm predrilled holes (requiring 13 cable runs), for a total railing height of 42" above deck boards.
  3. 11 9mm predrilled holes (requiring 11 cable runs), for a total railing height of 36" above deck boards..

Use the CableView Railing™ WORKSHEET to design your aluminum railing system and consider the following:

  1. Are you going to DECK MOUNT or FASCIA MOUNT your posts?
  2. Which top rail will I use?
  3. Use either PROFESSIONAL SWAGING SERVICE or HAND SWAGING.
If PROFESSIONAL SWAGING SERVICE is used at both ends of the cable run: Use DECK OR FASCIA MOUNT TERMINAL POSTS for every post in your aluminum handrail, including double offset posts at the corners. This will allow the attached fitting to pass through every post in the system.

If HAND SWAGING your assemblies (RECOMMENDED): Minimum of 2 DECK OR FASCIA MOUNT TERMINAL POSTS are required for each cable run (wherever your cable begins and ends). If your cable run also has 90 degree corners, use double INTERMEDIATE POSTS at each corner. Use DECK OR FASCIA MOUNT INTERMEDIATE POSTS spaced evenly (5' Max) for the remainder of the posts. CABLE CRIMPERS and CABLE CUTTERS are required.
