Beaded Newel Post and decking
A beaded newel post is pre-cut to length and pressure treated. These posts have a squared profile with one, or two lines, of detail routed out at the top of the post. and a truncated pointed top. They present an attractive, contemporary alternative to square posts and they are available in 1.25 metre and 2.4 metre lengths. The finished cross section of these posts is approximately 82mm x 82mm
The 1.25 metre post is designed to be bolted to the framework of your deck. It is not tall enough to be dug into the ground for deck support. While pressure treated with preservative it is not treated for ground contact. If you require a UC4 post, that is one treated for ground contact, then you need to purchase a 2.4 metre beaded newel. Alternatively you could consider the long lengths of 75mm or 100mm planed timber posts.
Finishing the installation
These posts are supplied pressure treated, they may be damp when delivered as they are stored under cover outdoors. Once the installation is finished you can apply an extra coat of preservative or water repellent. This will give the decking and balustrade a more uniform colour and appearance.
