Quantity
This post attaches to the side of your deck and is part of our aluminum cable railing system. Use one on each end of a cable railing run, as this reinforced post is designed for anchoring the ends of your cable.

The foundation of any cable rail system is where the cables begin and end. Our FASCIA 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 reinforced walls. 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 to eliminate many hours of installation labor, or undrilled (for surface mount fittings or custom drilling during installation). The drilled posts sold on this page are for flat runs. For stair runs, buy undrilled or call us for angled hole drilling.

The FASCIA MOUNT TERMINAL 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.

NOTE: ALL POSTS ARE OVERSIZED AND MUST BE CUT DOWN ON JOB SITE.

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

Impressive Products & Service
Ive been a general contractor for 30 years and this was actually the first cable railing we have done. From the ordering process to the installation, SC&R was available to answer any of our questions immediately and guide us through the install.
