PLEASE NOTE: This product and the ornamental railing used in connection herewith is intended to be used as an ornamental product only and is NOT intended as
a safety barrier for above ground floor installations. Install in accordance with local building codes. Keep railing support posts, columns and all fittings well painted and
periodically check to make sure all fittings are tight and free of rust corrosion.

INSTALLING: Regal Iron Rail
             WHEN USING COLUMNS, they should be installed first. Locate position desired and measure distance between columns and
             house and columns and newel posts. Cut rails to proper size and drill 1⁄4" hole thru 1" column frame. Bolt top and bottom rails to
             column. Columns should be erected 31⁄2" in from edge of base. Plumb vertically. Bolt socket eye to top and bottom.
             1. Count the number of 4' or 6 lengths of railing needed. Also the newel posts, columns and adjustable fittings. (Refer to Planning
                Installation procedures.)
             2. Install newel posts on concrete, brick or wood. Install them at least 4" from edge of platform or steps, either by drilling a 3" deep
                hole into cement, or mounting to the surface using floor flanges. If floor flanges are used for a surface mount, the newel posts
                should be cut down at the lower end to adjust to height of the rail.
             3. Cut newel posts to proper length, about 32". Railing height from floor to top rails approximately 301⁄2 inches.
4. Now put newel post in place and temporarily secure by wedging. Make sure posts are plumb.
IF USING REGAL RAILING ON STEPS
             To slant railing for use on steps, apply pressure downward and endwise to the top rail. Pickets should be parallel to post at top of
             steps. When railing is cut, angle of cut should be parallel to newel post and column.
             5. Place rails between post and post or between post and house. Recheck lengths and then cut with hacksaw.
             6. Take adjustable fitting and place it under end of rail. Make hole. Drill 1⁄4" hole in top and bottom and attach fitting.
             7. Your rails are now ready to fasten to newel posts with bolts furnished. Attach to wood house with lags and to stone house
                with lags and expansion shields.
             8. You can now secure your newel posts after ensuring it is plumb and all fittings are tight. Either cement the post or lead it to the base. If you use
                a floor flange at the bottom of the post, tighten with lag screws and expansion shields. For wood base, secure only with wood screws.
             9. Check all connections to make sure they are tight. Add ornaments, lambs tongues and finish with a coat of Rust-resistant Oil-based paint.
                Now step back and admire a beautiful addition to your home.
INSTALLATION PROCEDURES: Iron Rail
PLANNING INSTALLATION: Railing
1. Draw a line at least 4" from edge of platform and steps where railing is to be installed.
2. Miranda: Rail sections can only be cut between the decorative loop and the exposed
   picket. Adjust newel post accordingly.
   Carmel and Regal: It is recommended that the circle design be removed first. This can
   be done by carefully sawing at the two weld spots with mini hacksaw.
   Indicate location of end and corner newel posts. Indicate location of columns (flat or
   corner style). Make allowances for column widths and newel posts.
3. Count number of newel posts, columns, and railing sections needed by careful measuring.
   (See example.)
   Reminder: Railings come in 4' & 6' sections and can be cut to size.
                                                                                                                    Fig. 1: Rail Planning Example
               Installation Requirements for Planning Example: (See Fig. 1)
    • Flat Columns         • 14 Floor Flanges              • 4-4 ft. Rails
    • 2-6 ft. Rails        • 2 Corner Columns              • 14 sets (4) Masonry Anchors or Lag
    • 2 Newel Posts        • 6 sets (4) Fittings             Screws (depending on installation)
4. If more than one railing section is required in a straight run of railing, all sections should
   be of equal length for best appearance.

                                                                  5. Use one package of 4
