The Spectrum 42in Surface Mount Post Kit is an option specifically for use on 42” height railing on level section. It is designed to be used as an end post, mid post or corner post. If it is used as a corner post, an additional post is needed for “double posting” and a corner mending plate must be used to connect the posts. These posts are pre-drilled to allow 14 rows of 1/8” or 5/32” stainless steel cable and termination hardware to pass through. This post features a pre-drilled post flange for surface mounting to the structure below (mounting hardware sold separately). The powder-coated stainless steel post kit includes a Top Mounting Plate Assembly and Base Cover. Spectrum 42in Surface Mount Post Kit is offered in standard color options of black, metallic silver, white and dark brown. Special order color options are also available. The post is 1.5” x 1.5” and the actual post height is 40.5”.
