Q:Can this post be used for a cable railing system by drilling out the necessary holes for the cable or is there a better solution for post to be used with cable railing?

Answer This Question

A:  Tina, We do not recommend using our post for this application as drilling holes into our post takes away from the structural integrity of the post. I know some have done this, but we do not recommend this. Thank You, Aria Railing

      Answer This Question

      A:  you will need to put blocking between the joists under the decking, then use the bolts/screws to go through the decking into the blocking. Just screwing it to the decking will not be secure enough for sure.

      by|Jun 2, 2022

        A:  Hi Laura! No post is needed inside the Aria post to meet the Engineered Strength Rating. As always, we recommend blocking and using 6”x5/16” exterior torx/star drive construction screws for fastening Aria posts to wood or composite or 3”x5/16” hex-washer-head large diameter for concrete. Post Installations instructions can be found on www.ariarailing.com by clicking on this link: https://www.ariarailing.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/04/aria-railing-3in-post-install-instructions.pdf We also recommend checking with your local codes prior to installation. Please feel free to reach out to Cody or Reed on our customer service team by calling 844-612-2742. They are happy to help with any questions!

          Q:Are 42" railings available? Will 42" posts work with 36" railings?
          by|May 13, 2022
          2 Answers
          Answer This Question

          A:  No, this would not work, and we had the chance to go with 36 inch railings are a thankful we went with 42 inch railings, you will be happy with the extra length.

          by|May 19, 2022

            A:  Arthur, We do offer a 42”x6’ deck panel but no stairs right now. Yes 36” post go with 36” railing as they are 38.25” tall. The only time you would need 42” post is any middle or bottom post on stairs. The top post on stairs can be a 36” post kit. Thank You, Aria Railing.

              Expensive
              Way overpriced. Can burn your skin on a hot summer day so just look, don’t touch. Very difficult to assemble even for a professional like myself. Hi

                  Easy to install with power tool into wood framing with recommended 6” screws. It is best to make a template for drilling the holes especially for 45 degree angles as the center on the post side must by aligned with the center of the adjacent straight posts. Thin thickness shims are needed for proper leveling.

                  The railing is good for average steps, but not good enough for wide steps. Because the lower side of the rail will touch the step below it and will be installed very tight!!! Also I have returned the paint, Touchups because there there’s No room to paint after installation. Also I have requested missing set of bracket, and got it.
