This porch post is designed for use with the 5" balustrade system, our slimmest balustrade. This porch post features a traditional design; it has the look of turned wood, but it is crafted in urethane. The porch post is also reinforced at the core to provide strength and structural support. We are your source for versatile balustrade systems that bring you years of use with little maintenance required. Urethane balustrade components are molded with precision and classic detail. They are also non-porous. Urethane possesses a closed cell structure that prevents peeling, cracking and decay caused by excessive moisture absorption.
