CUSTOM MADE
PORCH RAILING POST CAPS

post cap with rail stubs

B.H. Davis Company has designed
a new and unique system for  the construction
of porch railings and post caps.

In the photos below you will be able to see how
our newly designed  decorative porch post caps
integrate directly into the curved hand rails.
Each post cap is created with short extension
stubs that exactly match the profile of the hand rail.

The advantages of this design are significant.  First
it allows for a much faster and simpler installation
of the post cap / hand rail joint.  There is no mitering
or cope cutting of the hand rail to the post cap at all.
Instead a straight forward butt joint supported by
dowels or hidden hardware is all that is needed
for a clean and tight joint.

Secondly this system avoids all the weak points
that tend to lead to joint failure over time.
As such you end up with a stronger
and longer lasting hand rail installation.

While the photos show this system integrating with
a curved hand rail it can be made for any style
of porch railing system......including both curved and
straight railings as well as with post corners at any angle.

Here you can see how the post cap top design
integrates with the profile of the hand rail.
Note that the bottom of the post cap rail stubs
are relieved to recieve the railing system ballusters.

While on these post caps the bottom area is not
recessed to wrap around the post top that can
easily be designed into your custom post caps.

Here are two 90 degree post caps displayed next
to each other.  While this nicely simulates a U-turn
interestion these two caps were actually installed
about 15' apart with straight rails joined to the rail stubs.
