Iron Newels Posts – How they work
Iron newels are designed to be the main structural support for a staircase. You need to use a newel post at the beginning of your stairs, at the end of a stair, at every level change and also every time your stair makes a turn. It is also highly recommended that you use a newel post every 8 ft. on a long stair railing section or balcony. Newels provide the strength and stability every staircase needs. Newels are also required to pass your home inspection.
