4002 Chamfered 3-1/2" Newel


The term "4002 Chamfered 3-1/2" Newel" likely refers to a specific type of architectural component used in staircases or balustrades. Here's a breakdown of the different parts of the term:

  1. "Chamfered": Chamfering refers to the process of cutting or beveling the edges or corners of a square or rectangular object to create angled edges. In the case of a newel, chamfering could be applied to the middle to give it a decorative or more refined look.
  2. "3-1/2" Newel": This dimension refers to the width of the newel post. In this case, it indicates that the newel has a width of 3-1/2 inches. The width is measured across the broadest part of the newel.

A newel is a structural post that provides support and stability to a staircase. It is typically located at the bottom and top of a staircase, as well as at intermediate landings. The newel post serves as an anchor for the handrail and balustrade system.
