A Poly Raised Panel Porch Newel Post is a synthetic alternative to the traditional raised panel wood post. Polyurethane newels look and feel much like wood, with crisp, clean lines and a warm feel. Just like our large Cedar newel posts, this porch newel post has a hollow center which allows for our Newel Installation Kit which is very strong and completely hidden. All our Polyurethane products are factory primed and ready for installation and paint.
48″ High. Can be cut to desired length if needed. Cut poly newels just as you would cut wood. The bottom smooth square portion is 9″ taller than the top square portion. Up to 9 inches can be cut from the base of the newel, meaning the minimum height for this newel is 39″. If you need a newel shorter than 39″, consider using our Smooth Poly Porch Newel Post.
S: Straight rail application. Has panels on 2 opposite sides, plain on other 2 opposite sides
C: Corner rail application. Has panels on 2 adjacent sides, plain on other 2 adjacent sides
E: End rail application. Has panels on 3 sides, plain on 1 side.
IF ORDERING BALLTOP FINIALS – order at least one size smaller than the porch newel post size. For example, the max balltop size for an 8″ newel is a 7″ balltop. Otherwise the balltop will not fit on the flat cap.
Poly newels are reinforced with an internal PVC pipe. They are structural for guardrail purposes, but also can be used as a decorative wrap over an existing structural member. Click the “Poly Newel Internal Pipe Sizes PDF” below for drawings showing the pipe sizes. For an existing 4×4 post, you’ll need at least an 8″ Smooth or Raised Panel Newel for a wrap. For an existing 6×6 post, you’ll need at least a 10″ Smooth or Raised Panel Newel for a wrap.
