Plain newel posts are a good cost effective way to replace your existing stair balustrade. The newels are machined to a generous 90mm x 90mm square and are sold in a good range of lengths from 1500 to 3600mm. We offer both oak flat and pyramid newel caps to suit these posts and our chrome Scala caps fit perfectly also.
Newels are available in both full and half format. The full 90mm square version is the standard line used in most places on a staircase. The newel is also offered as a half version which is used where the balustrading ends against a wall, typically at the end of the landing.
These oak newels are manufactured using a good quality timber grade to give you a nice quality post. There will be live knots within the posts and the occasional black knot
Posts are manufactured from 3 or 4 sections that are carefully laminated togther. This is a much stronger construction than posts made from a single piece of oak, and is much more resistant to warping or cracking
Oak newels are supplied machined to a smooth surface finish and supplied bare ready for you to prefinish on site.
When oak is machined you can sometimes get slight lifting of the grain in small areas, particlarly where the grain varies such as around knots. This can be easily sanded smooth prior to applying a finish and is normal for this timber.
We can prefinish your oak newels in a traditional finish if you require or you can purchase the newels natural/unfinished.
Oak newels will normally be delivered to you with a specialist parcel courier.
Typically we use overnight couriers for this product to allow us to agree a day of delivery with the customer
