Where would you normally use a stainless steel post?
To structurally support a balustrade on a deck, balcony or staircase, in particular, wire cable or glass. Which saddles go with this post?
Any of the saddles found here
. Why are some posts 1.6mm and others 3.0mm?
This refers to the wall thickness of the post.
In most cases the 1.6mm wall thickness will be enough for use on corner, end and intermediate posts with glass balustrade.
For wire balustrade, you may want to consider going with the heavier 3.0mm wall thickness; particularly in the case of a free standing end post where the correct legal tension required for the wire cable could cause the post to distort. For intermediate and corner posts; the 1.6mm wall thickness is usually enough. What is it made out of?
316 Stainless Steel in a Mirror Finish. What are the important dimensions?
Overall Height: 960mm, once one of the saddles has been added.
Wall Thickness: 1.6mm.
Diameter of post: 50.8mm
Diameter of base: 100mm (supplied with cover plate) How should you fasten it to the ground/deck ?
Due to the large number of surfaces that the post could be fixed to, we do not supply any fasteners.
We suggest that you speak to a local hardware store for more info.
