While the tubing used for our Stainless Steel Round Posts & Top Rail is naturally resistant to bending with its cylindrical shape, this thicker-walled version is specially designed for additional resilience; ideal for terminal applications in cable railing systems.The drilled posts sold on this page are for flat runs.
For stair runs, buy undrilled or call us for angled hole drilling.Details:
- 2in OD Brushed Finish 316 Marine Grade Stainless Steel Post w/ 0.158 wall thickness
- Available Un-drilled or Pre-Drilled with 11 or 13 holes (depending on rail height)
- For Fascia Mounting cable railing on Level Surfaces to achieve 36in or 42in final rail height
See Diagram above for possible Drilling configuration.
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 rail spaced evenly no more than 4' apart, 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.Note: Stainless Steel is highly resistant, but not impervious to the elements, and requires minimal maintenance for ideal results.
We recommend applying Passivator
to all exposed stainless steel components at the time of installation. In addition, apply Boeshield T9
if within 10 miles of a marine environment to further protect the stainless steel. Learn more about these products and general stainless steel care on our Cleaning & Maintenance Page
