Sloped-top Bottom Rail

# (caf)

STBR-installation Traditional. Professional. Effective. For exterior use, the design of your bottom railing is critical! Normal flat-topped bottom railing (interior shoe railing) will NOT shed water properly. Worse, shoe rails with a channel to receive Balusters actually trap water! Also, interior styles appear very lightweight when used outside.

(including Samples)
Sloped-top Bottom Rail can also be ordered
with P-series Handrails and Subsails as Rail Sets
and Top or Bottom pieces can be ordered
separately at the Size dropdown below.

Our Sloped-top Bottom Rail solves water drainage problems! Two interlocking pieces (shown) provide easy installation, hidden hardware, and substantial, traditional styling! Just screw top piece of Railing into bottom of notched Balusters. (Baluster notching available as a pop-down on each Exterior Baluster page.) Then, using our pre-drilled holes, screw bottom piece of Railing into place, as shown. This two-piece format also permits easy pinstripe painting.

Kickspace Blocks are used to support longer Balustrade sections at an appropriate height above the porch floor. Use one Kickspace Block evenly spaced under every 4 or 5 feet of Bottom Rail.

Note: We are currently unable to obtain Western Red Cedar at reasonable prices in the quality and lengths we require for Rails. We suggest you consider Cypress or AZEK® Brand Cellular PVC (synthetic wood) if you want to upgrade from Poplar for exterior use.
