The 12 Days of Building Product Terms: DAY 5 - Post

Click "Read More" to get started on day 5's term,


A Post is the vertical portion of an architectural railing system that takes the loading of the entire system and transfers it to the structure by either being grouted into concrete, or mounted to the structure with a bolted base plate.

Posts are normally at 48" on-center spacing and usually come in 2" x 2" tubes, however, other post sizes are also available.

Custom posts support this Sterling Cable rail at National Harbor, MD
