 2" x 2" x .250" Wall Structural Steel End Post Construction

End Post Construction 
Using 2"x1" Top Rail and Bottom Rail (if applicable)
 

Frame components can be carbon steel or stainless steel. This style has been designed to perform satisfactorily when subjected to the tension encountered when multiple load points (cables) are attached and tensioned properly to your end posts 
(225 lbs. or more per line). Detailed downloadable drawings show proper spacings of the cables vertically on the end posts that allow for cable flex within allowable limits to meet code requirements that a 4" ball shall not pass through at any point.

Even though the end posts are 2"x2"x.250", intermediate posts can be 2"x1"x.120" to minimize the bulkiness of the frame.

 

Note the tubed corner sections that are illustrated. They replace corner posts with hardware mounted on two sides or two posts with cable pulled between them. The cable runs through tubes welded to two posts. It makes a nice looking corner with uniform curves going around the corner. See Tubed Corner Sections on page 10 for detailed drawings.
