The 1-3/8” Elite Top™ is a non-continuous railing style. This simply means the post will protrude above the height of the railing section where the top of the section meets the post.
Some municipalities in the St. Louis area require “continuous grasp-ability” while walking up and down stairs. Therefore, MFOS also carry’s Elite’s ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) 2” O.D. Grab Rail system which can be added to the 1-3/8” Elite Top™ to meet local codes. To make the 1-3/8” Elite Top™ system complete, matching gates in standard widths of 3’, 3’6”, and 4’ wide, along with optional ¾” x 1” (.062 wall) pickets and ball caps to fit any size posts are available.
This style is available in heights of 3’ and 3’6”, fully assembled flat and stair section widths of 2’, 4’, and 6’ wide, standard ¾” square pickets with 3-3/4” picket spacing, in 2-Rail or 3-Rail, and in Elite’s seven standard colors of Black, Quaker Bronze, White, Walnut Brown, Beige, Hartford Green, and Sandstone.

Elite offers standard 2”, 2-1/2”, 3”, and 4” square posts that are optimal for using in installations requiring core-drilling into concrete, and also offers these same sized posts as “Screw Boss with Flange Plate” posts which allows you to secure a flange plate to the bottom of the post. The flange plate can then be secured to concrete, wood, or other surfaces by using the appropriate anchors. Decorative flange covers are available for all sized posts to cover the flange plates.
