Mounting and installing the aluminum railing system you've dreamt of has never been easier thanks to the AL13 Home Aluminum Post with Pre-Installed Brackets. Crafted from durable heavy-gauge aluminum, these structural posts are available in a slim 2 inch x 2 inch dimension to let your continuous top rail gain all the attention. The included 2-piece post base cover helps give a polished effect to the installed post. No extra time-consuming measuring, no more second-guessing; just a quick and accurate install all in one piece.

These AL13 Home Posts are intended to create a 36 inch or 42 inch high railing an over-the-post installation for a continuous top. The over-the-post installation method allows one to create a drink rail with an AL13 Home Aluminum Rail Clip (sold separately) or add a decorative touch with an AL13 Home Round Accent Top Rail (sold separately).

The placement of the AL13 Home brackets on the post is designed for only level Fortress panels.
Post Types Available:
End Post: End Posts will have one top and one bottom bracket installed to finish a level run.
Corner Post: Corner Posts will have two top and two bottom brackets installed for a 90-degree turn in your railing.
Line Post: Line Posts will have two top and two bottom brackets installed for a continuous run of rail.

Please Note: This post is made to be installed with the round or flat Accent Top Rail or a Rail Clip to install a deck board top rail. This post is not compatible with post caps.

Fortress AL13 Home Pre-Bracketed Posts are offered in the premium Fortress powder-coat finishes of Matte White or Black Sand to complete your deck's style.
