The top rail is made of 3/8 x 1 1/2 inch bar. It is 18 inches long 12 on the slope and 6 on the level. The post 58 inches long in ground shown in the second picture. It doesn’t come with hardware or baseplate. You dig a hole and mount it in concrete.
This rail is perfect if you need a little help up one or two steps.
Designed for use with a step having about a 7 inch rise, but can be used with other sizes too.
The top rail is about 18 inches long and has bend for added usability.
The level part of the rail is designed to set about 3 feet off the step surface.
The post is 1 x 1 inch steel tube at a length of about 58 inches.
Installation: Most customers use this in the ground next to their steps. You’ll need to dig at least 18 inches and put in a good amount of concrete 100+ pounds. Remember all the support depends on one hole. In some situations you might trim the post to suit the situation. For a more professional look this can be mounted directly into a step or sidewalk through the use of a core drill. In such a case you will need to trim the post and use a good anchoring cement in a hole about 5 inches deep.
Needless to say this rail is very stout and has only one welded point. There is nothing to assemble! The rail is one solid piece weighing in at 15 pounds!
Paint: We now offer three finish colors: black, white, and hammered bronze. I cannot guarantee that this won’t scratch in shipment. You might need to do touch up on location. After several months you may have to do a one time rust treatment. Wire brush any impacted area, treat with a primer and touch up with the proper paint. After an initial touch up you should have several years of no rust.
