This post attaches to the side of your deck and is part of our aluminum cable railing system. Use one for every 4' between the first and last post (the terminal posts) of a cable run. These are designed to guide, but not anchor, your cable infill.

FASCIA MOUNT INTERMEDIATE POSTS are used between the TERMINAL POSTS and are spaced approximately every 4'. The wire rope passes through without loading the post. Each post is manufactured from 6063 T6 aluminum providing the strongest cable rail system available.

Intermediate 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 FASCIA MOUNT INTERMEDIATE POST mounts directly to the rim joist or fascia board by attachment hardware. Usually these are lag bolts (sold separately).

For additional corrosion prevention, purchase Grommets for each hole. Our grommets can also be used to keep the cables from rattling against post walls in windy areas.



  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.
  4. Qty (2) mounting holes must be drilled.

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?
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 (4' Max) for the remainder of the posts. CABLE CRIMPERS and CABLE CUTTERS are required.
