Newel Posts and Pedestals
Royal Corinthian manufactures balustrade newel posts or pedestals from RoyalThane™ polyurethane, RoyalCast™ fiberglass, RoyalStone™ synthetic stone, RoyaLite™ FRP lightweight fiberglass, and RoyalWrap™ cellular PVC. The first three materials are structural and have been independently tested, whereas PVC pedestals, which are available in any style as our PVC Column Wraps and virtually any size are made as two corners and act as wraps. FRP pedestals are made as two halves with an integrated lap joint for assembly around a structural support. A subset of our RoyaLite pedestals (RoyaLite Pultruded) is structural but only available in 6”, 8”, 10”, and 12” nominal widths and in a plain style only. The rest of our materials are available in every style pictured below. All newel posts that are pictured with panels can be made plain, all paneled posts can be made as corners, thru, and end posts, and all posts can be made shorter or taller. If you are using our newel posts with our balustrade system, the majority of our systems are made to work with all 4 sides of the post being paneled with the exception of the top and bottom of stairs, which typically require an end post. Don’t let any of this overwhelm you as our staff is very knowledgeable and can figure out post paneling on your behalf as well as which material and size is most suitable for you. We have been doing this for over 22 years so rest assured that you are in good hands. Our posts can be used in combination with our balusters and railings, with someone else’s railing systems, or under our columns as pedestals.
