Custom Curved Mouldings 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.
