Summary

Rope Twist Complete Stair Newel Post 

The flat top allows you to select any type of newel post cap to finish the post. If you wish to have a turned cap such as a ball or acorn cap then you will need to purchase a flat cap to fit on the post first then fit the ball or acorn.

The complete type newel has been designed for new build staircases or to replace your entire newel post

Fitting Rope Twist Newel Posts  

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

Remember that handrail heights need to be 900mm. 

The bottom post is housed over the stair string (the side of the staircase) and fixed into position fixing through the side of the post and through the string using tapered dowels or suitable wood screws. Screws should be countersunk into the timber so they can be plugged or filled to match the timber 

Top posts and landing posts are fixed using a lap joint to the joist under the floorboards at the top of the stairs and secured using suitable wood screws. Remember to always drill pilot holes into hardwoods. 

You can use Zip Fix UT Newel Post fasteners if you prefer. These secure the post to concrete or timber sub floors 

Half newel posts are glued and screwed directly to the wall. Place the screws through the head of the post where the handrail will cover them 

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

Staircase Building Regulations 

Handrail have to be a minimum of 900mm high for domestic staircases 

Handrail heights on the staircase are measured from the front bullnose of a step to the top of the handrail.

Handrail heights on the landing are measured from the floor to the top of the handrail 

Spindles must not allow a sphere 100mm in diameter to pass between two spindles 

If you are unsure, please contact us or your building inspector for new builds
