These 2 1/2″ wide wood porch spindles represent our “midsize” option. A very versatile size, they can used on small or large homes and porches alike with success. This is our 2nd-best selling spindle, behind only the 3 1/2″ Porch Spindles.
Actual Width: 2 1/2″. Specify length. Turned portion is 15″ long, centered in the spindle. Bottom notch option reduces length by 1/8″.
Spacing & Quantity: To meet the 4″ ball rule required by most building codes, space these spindles every 5 1/4″ On Center. The smallest diameter of the turned portion is approx. 1 3/8″, so with a 5 1/4″ O.C. spacing, you’ll have a 3 7/8″ gap between them at the narrowest portion. To determine quantity required, take your rail length in inches and divide by 5.25.
PRIMING OPTION (recommended): Premium acrylic primer in flat white available as an option, which allows for immediate installation. Expect some blemishes in the primer from shipping. This is normal and will not affect the finished result when painted after installation.
