Box Newel Posts
Box newel posts are manufactured using 3/4″ thick solid hardwood for all four sides. These posts are constructed with lock miter joints at the corners. The flat panel and raised panel versions are made using true stile & rail construction, not just a routed out pocket. Our posts are a piece of furniture.
See below for different size options.
All our box newel posts are proudly made in the USA.
Wood Stair Treads
Wood stair treads are offered in a standard 1-1/32″ finished thickness after surfacing and sanding. Extra thick hardwood stair treads for open rise staircases are available in any thickness. The most popular over sized wood tread sizes are 1-3/4″ and 2″ thick. We have produced treads as thick as 4″. Any stair tread thicker than 1-3/4″ will require face glue lamination(s) to meet the desired finished dimension.
Wood Handrail 6002
2-3/4″ x 1-5/8″ square handrail
Iron Balusters for stair railings are only available hollow tubular steel. The iron stair balusters market has been trending toward hollow for the last several years. There are a few reasons for this migration. The primary ones being: hollow stair baluster railings are less expensive; hollow stair baluster railings are cheaper to ship; hollow stair baluster railings are easier to cut. The strength of these hollow railings is not an issue. Tubular steel balusters are extremely strong.
Please make sure your iron baluster installation will pass code. Typically, 3 balusters per stair tread are required to meet the 4″ sphere spacing test which requires a 4″ sphere cannot pass through any part of the balustrade. Always consult your local building department.
