Summary

90mm Rope Twist Stair Newel Post 

Turned Stair Newel post with spigot dowel can be used with existing old posts or new Newel Bases. 

The Pre-Drilled head allows you to select any type of newel post cap to finish the post. If you wish to have a Flat cap or Pyramid style cap fixed to your post please let us know and we will send your posts with a flat top head ready for the cap to be glued into position.

This spigot dowel type newel has been designed to drop into a newel base with a 50mm diameter hole drilled in the top. This can be achieved by using new pre-drilled newel bases or by cutting your exiting posts down and drilling your own hole for the dowel. 

Use a strong adhesive such as Joiners mate to glue the two components together and for an even stronger joint we recommend screwing through the newel base and into the spigot dowel of the newel post. Counter sink and screws so that they can be plugged or filled hiding them from view 

Newel posts are supplied in three designs, each with it specific purpose on a staircase

The full 90mm x 90mm Full Newel with one square block. This is the most commonly used post on most stair configurations. It is designed for the bottom of the stair case, top of the staircase, used as mid posts and corner posts on a landing. 

The 90mm x 90mm Intermediate Newel with a double block. This is used when the staircase turns through 90 degees and goes up in height. The handrail will go from the full newel up this this intermediate newel hitting the bottom block. The handrail will then leave from the top block and continue up the staircase 

The 90mm Half Newel Post. Used up against a wall to finish the handrail run. This post is fixed by screwing and gluing it directly to the wall using suitable fixings. Screws should be positioned so that they are hidden from view by the handrail. 

Fitting Rope Twist Newel Posts  

Newel Posts are fitted first followed by base rails and handrails.

Remember that handrail height needs to be 900mm. 

This spigot dowel type newel has been designed to drop into a newel base with a 50mm diameter hole drilled in the top. This can be achieved by using new pre-drilled newel bases or by cutting your exiting posts down and drilling your own hole for the dowel. 

Use a strong adhesive such as Joiners mate to glue the two components together and for an even stronger joint we recommend screwing through the newel base and into the spigot dowel of the newel post. Counter sink and screws so that they can be plugged or filled hiding them from view 

We recommend laying out your stair components to ensure handrail heights are 900mm before you cut any existing newel posts
