Would more post need to be installed every 6ft for this stair railing and balcony?
what did it feel like ?
Felt pretty stout
If the balusters are properly installed they will add rigidity to the rail system.
Looks great from here, nice house.
then it should be fine…
That horizontal rail has to have a splice somewhere that would weaken it’s capability to meet the 200# requirement, but maybe it is the picture that makes it look a mile long.
I would say it needs a post at least in the middle.
You’re such an alarmist, but I have to agree!
It could be the picture, but it does look awfully long to go without a post. Did you measure the overall length?
I’ve built those. The rail comes in any length you order. Factory finger joints are stronger than the wood itself. It is fine.
I’m 99.8% sure nothing will be done if you do decide to recommend a post.
I agree Chris.
I did not take a measurement.
Thanks for the help on this one.
