|All Over-the-Post newels are manufactured with a 3/4" diameter pin turned into the top of the newel that will be installed into the underside of the fittings used in the rail system.||Recommended heights for the following newel placements are based on a 34" rake rail height, a 7-1/2" rise, a 10" run, and a 1-1/4" tread overhang and are dependent on the location of the newel matching the standard location listed with the application. Variances of up to 3/4" can be expected in certain conditions and should be accounted for when trying to achieve minimum code heights.|
|OTP STARTING NEWEL HEIGHTS ( For 34" Rake Rail Height)|
These newels have a 1-1/2" diameter by 10" deep hole bored into the bottom of the newel and are shipped with a loose 19" dowel in the carton. These newels allow the installer to trim the newel (up to 4") to achieve exact rake rail heights over a wide variety of applications.
|NOTE: Rake rail height requirements other than 34" can be adjusted on a 1:1 basis. Example: For a 36" rake rail height, add 2" to the base number. For a 30" rake rail height, subtract 4". Check local building codes. NOTE: 1" movement in the newel from standard placement will change the rail height by approximately 3/4". Moving newel placement away from the second riser raises the rail height and moving it closer to the second riser will lower the rail height.|
