Aluminum Railing Post 48 Inches Tall with Welded Base Mount
This Gilpin aluminum railing post is 48 inches tall and has a welded on base mount. 48 inch tall posts are mainly used for the 42 inch tall Summit or Fairfield railing panels. The post is blank so you can use the wall mount brackets or angle brackets to attach the railing panels. Posts are 2.5 x 2.5 inches wide and the welded on base mount is 5-1/4” x 4-1/2”. Powder coating protects the aluminum from peeling or cracking over time. Posts should also be used for the top of the stairs. Longer posts should be used for the bottom of the stairs. You may need more room for the mounting brackets once the railing panels are racked at an angle. Once the railing panel has been secured to the post, you should trim down the excess post length and put the post cap back on. Posts are shipped in their own boxes and come with a post cap and the welded on base mount.
Surface Mounting Posts
These railing posts are made to be surface mounted using bolts purchased at your local hardware store. Four holes are started in the base mount for easier placement. You can make the holes any size you choose as they are started, but not drilled all the way through. When mounting posts on cement, the recommended distance to install posts from the edge is about 3″- 4″ just to be safe so the concrete doesn’t crack. The long edge of the base mount should be perpendicular to the rail. The size of the anchor bolts recommend by Gilpin to mount the posts are 1/4″ x 2 ¾”.
