A: Prova posts are comprised of a single piece of extruded aluminum. Infill fittings on the face of the posts, the handrail mount on top of the post, and the post mount base are comprised of stainless and painted steel. These posts are designed for use in all weather environments and will not rust. The exception to this rule would be coastal areas with a salt water presence, in those areas our grade 304 stainless steel is susceptible to rust if not properly maintained.
A: Hello Archy - thank you for your question. Our post handrail mounts are designed specifically to work with our 1.5" diameter circular handrails. We have seen customers mount their own handrails to the top of our Prova posts but a 2 x 4 is likely going to create some issues as there will be a lot of handrail overhang over our mounting plate. This would require an outside the box custom solution to ensure adequate support for your handrail and unfortunately we do not have firm information on how to accomplish that.
A: All Prova posts are designed to work with our Prova PA29 (Model #96240) stainless steel cable infill.
