What are newel posts?

Newel posts (also known as stair posts) are the structural posts found at the top, bottom and key junctures of a staircase to ensure the railing systems strength and stability throughout. Wood options are available in a variety of styles from traditional turned designs with ornamental ball tops, to the classic shaker detail with recessed paneling and inlayed trim to the plain but modern flat panel configurations. Metal posts are can also be substituted in when called for; fabricated to match metal pickets or to bear the weight of glass panels. To view our wood post styles please click here
