Get the luxurious, contemporary style of a continuous top rail with ready-made Over-the-Post kits for your AFCO aluminum deck railing. Over-the-Post kits allow you to run your top rail across the top of your posts for clean, unbroken lines and an unforgettable look.

AFCO's Over-the-Post post and bracket kits include a powder-coated aluminum post, a specialized top bracket, post base trim, and an ACQ pad if you're mounting your post directly onto treated wood.

Post kits come in three beautiful textured finishes to match the color options of AFCO Pro aluminum deck railing. Choose the specialized bracket style you need to fit your deck's layout:

  • End Post: For the end of a railing where your rail terminates and doesn't continue
  • Straight Line: Connects two sections of railing with a continuous rail across them
  • 45 Degree Line: Connects two railing sections at a 45 degree angle
  • 90 Degree Line: Connects two railing sections at a 90 degree corner
