A Polyurethane Recessed Panel Newel Post is a synthetic alternative to the traditional paneled 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 standard height for this newel is 39″.  If you need a newel shorter than 39″, we can produce them shorter at the factory.  Call for pricing.

Plan Types:
In Line (straight) rail application.  Has panels on 2 opposite sides, plain on other 2 opposite sides
Corner rail application.  Has panels on 2 adjacent sides, plain on other 2 adjacent sides
End rail application.  Has panels on 3 sides, plain on 1 side.

IF ORDERING BALLTOP FINIALS – order at least one size smaller than the 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 around an existing structural member. Click the “Poly Newel Internal Pipe Sizes PDF” below for drawings showing the pipe sizes. Using the Recessed Panel Newels, you’ll need to use the 12″ Newel for a wrap around a 4×4 or 6×6.  Smooth Square Newels and Raised Panel Newels have larger inside diameters and sometimes work better as a wrap.
