Summary

90mm Square Newel Post with Spigot Dowel 

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

The Flat top head allows you to select 90mm Pyramid or Flat Newel Caps. If you wish to have a Ball Cap then order the ball and a flat cap, you will need to attach the ball cap to the flat cap then onto the post with a hard setting adhesive

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 

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

The full 90mm x 90mm Full Newel. 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 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 Square Newel Posts  

These posts can be fitted with the Chrome or Brushed Newel Post Connector with match newel post cap. Posts bought with these fittings will be supplied square cut at the bottom to sit flush into the connector. These connectors hide the joint between newel posts and newel caps 

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
