If you thought you couldn’t install railing on concrete, think again. This Post Mount is a substitute for a 4x4 wood post when you’re installing aluminum railing. You can install this post mount on both decking and concrete, so go ahead and put a railing on your patio!
Dealing with an uneven surface? No problem. The post is adjustable for use with 36-in. to 42-in-high rails and uneven surfaces. The steel has been precision welded for extra strength and stability.
The post is designed to be covered with a 4x4 post sleeve and works with most aluminum and composite sleeves. It’s compatible with Deckorators® ALX aluminum railing kits.
Installation on deck or porch:
To install on a deck or porch, you’ll need a base plate, top plate and hardware. We recommend the Deckorators Deck Mount Kit, which includes all the needed hardware.
Alternatively, you can install using lag bolts.
NOTE: Posts will need to be secured to wood blocking underneath the deck. Follow manufacturer’s complete instructions.
Installation on concrete:
On concrete, install the post with masonry fasteners.
