The two basic categories of balustrade systems are the over-the-post and post-to-post systems. An over-the-post newel system features a "pin-top" style newel and uses handrail fittings to join the handrail pieces together running over the newel post. The over-the-post system gives the staircase a clean, uninterrupted look from top to bottom. The post-to-post newel system features a newel post with a "block" top. In an over-the-post newel system, there are smaller (usually 5" to 6") block tops often called starting newels and larger block (10" to 13") tops often called landing newels or transition newels. The landing newels or transition newels allow the handrail to enter at one height and exit the newel post at another height.
Whichever newel post you choose your stairway is sure to be more beautiful with stair parts from StairPartsUSA.com. Our American made turned newel posts are beautiful pieces of furniture as well as functional stair parts. On our American made turned newels, skilled craftsmen spend as much time sanding the newel posts as they do turning them. This means that there is little sanding for you to do before finishing. Standard newel posts represent a great value, but are not crafted to the same exacting standards as our deluxe turned newel posts. They will require additional sanding before staining. For those who want a more contemporary look, check out out selection of iron newels. If you have any questions, please give us a call. (800) 403-1480.
