Hardwood Newel Posts
Newel posts are the major support for a balustrade system. Newels are larger than balusters and are located at the bottom and top of a stairway or at a turn in the handrail. On level runs over 10 feet, newel posts should be placed at every 5-6′ interval. Visit LJ Smiths facts page to read more on installation tips and frequently asked questions.
