The NOVA 42” Stair Post Kit post is used as the “bottom stair post” on 36” height stair rail sections. It is undrilled due to stair angle variations. The installer would layout the location of cable tensioners and rail brackets and pre-drill mounting holes into the post using drilling templates. The post features a pre-drilled post flange for surface mounting to structure below (mounting hardware sold separately). The powder coated aluminum post kit includes a post pad, post skirt and post cap. This kit is offered in standard color options of white, black and bronze. The post is 3” x 3”and the actual post height is 44”.
