The foundation of any cable rail system is where the cables begin and end. Our FASCIA MOUNT TERMINAL POST (rectangle body with square top) is engineered specifically to withstand the applied stress when each wire rope is tensioned. Each aluminum railing post is manufactured from 6063 T6 aluminum with reinforced walls.
Avoid competitor hollow posts that are designed for glass infill. When the cables are tightened in these cable railings, the posts tend to deflect, so the installer must decrease cable tension to reduce the bending.
Terminal posts come either pre-drilled with powder-coated holes which eliminates many hours of installation labor, or un-drilled which are used in stairs.
The FASCIA MOUNT TERMINAL POST mounts directly to the rim joist or fascia board by attachment hardware. Usually these are lag bolts (sold separately).
