How To Choose Your Post

  • Choose the End Post for the start or end of a railing run
  • Choose the Corner Post for 90-degree corners of your deck railing
  • Choose the Line Post for the middle of two railing sections in a straight line
  • Choose the Blank Post for angled stair railings or any angle besides 90 degrees

Please Note: Pre-bracketed posts will not work with Accent Panels, V-Series, H-Series, FE26 Axis panels, nor Fortress Glass Systems. Use the blank posts for those systems.

How To Choose Your Height

For 36-inch tall railing, choose the 39-1/2-inch post for all level sections and the 45-1/2-inch post for the middle or bottom of any stair sections.

Note: 36-inch posts for stairs are still within code for level areas that have 42-inch posts
