Contemporary Newels are the 4001, 4003, and 4006. Contemporary Newels have a square design which is great for home owners who want a simple look to their staircase. The square-style of Contemporary Newels set a simple, calm tone to a home. Primed and painted square posts matched up with primed and painted square balusters are a simple combination, but provide a great deal of aesthetic value to a Contemporary staircase. Contemporary Newels are blank posts; they have no intricate shape or deep cuts like other Newels. The square base of Contemporary Newels is encompassed by most or all of the post. Some Contemporary Newels have a Ball Top and others have a Flat Top. Some stair builders and contractors prefer routing the edges of a Contemporary Post so that the edges are not so sharp, and are easier to hold and handle for users of the staircase. Contemporary Newels are smaller than Box Newels. Contemporary Newels are mostly used for Post-to-Post systems. Stair Parts Depot supplies Contemporary Newels in 3” and 3-1/2” square base, being 48” or 59” tall. The set of balusters that match well with Contemporary Newels are the 5060 and 5360 (squares).
Box Newels offered by Stair Parts Depot are the 4075, 4076, 4077, 4078, 4092, 4093, and 4094. All Box Newels offered by Stair Parts Depot are made of solid wood and carry a craftsman style design. Box Newels differ from turned Newels because instead of being turned, they are cut with straight blades, carrying square designs with rectangular panels, faces, and moldings. Unlike Contemporary newels, where the face of the post extends all the way to the base, Box Newels have a face, body, and base – each with different designs. The base of a Box Newel is larger than its face and body, increasing load support for the staircase – as well as its aesthetics. Box Newels have square bases ranging from 3-1/2” to 6-1/2” thick, and are 58” – 60” tall. Box Newels have either a square or pyramid top. Box Newels are used for post-to-post systems. Both wood and metal balusters match great with Box Newels. The 4075 box newel has a 5” pyramid cap that is attached to a 60” tall square post sized at 3.5”. 10 inches below the pyramid top, Astragal molding is attached to the 3.5” square wood post. The 4075 post looks great if the customer prefers a simple pyramid top post and does not want the post to take up too much space on either side of the stairway. 3.5” wide posts can be used for smaller stairways and still provide sufficient room for the end user to walk up and down the stairs. Larger posts like the 5” 4092 post should not be used for smaller stairways, as they can block the end user from being able to walk up the stairway. The 4076 is a post very similar to the 4075 in that which the same 3.5” square wood block is used, but this post has a routed flat cap instead of the pyramid cap and a different type of molding. The Flat Capped 4076 post is a great addition to any Contemporary-styled staircase. The 4077 post is a Newel that is very similar to the 4075. The posts are nearly identical except the 4077 has a wider base (5” compared to the 3.5” of the 4075) and an extra set of molding. The 4078 post is a newel that is very similar to the 4076. The posts are nearly identical except the 4078 has a wider base (5” compared to the 3.5” of the 4076) and some extra molding above the 5” base. The 5” base of the 4077 and 4078 post is 25” long and is housed by cove molding. When the 4077 or 4078 post is purchased, the equivalent 4075 or 4076 post is given along with a separate box containing the 5” base sleeve and two feet of molding (enough to attach to all four sides of the post above the sleeve). The 4092 is a great post on the larger end with a solid 5” base. It’s got a 2-⅞” rectangular face engraved into the center of the post. Square panels are 12” below the 5-½” pyramid cap. There are two rectangular panels on the 4092 post: one 5.5” panel below the pyramid cap, and the other 22-¾” panel below the square molding. The 4093 is a hallow post – 6-1/4″ base with a flat top and molding attached to the top, mid-section, and bottom on top of the base. The 4094 is a 4092 post plus a 6-1/2″ sleeve and molding.
