TREX TRANSCEND

Read all instructions BEFORE installation.

NOTE: All Transcend railings and gaskets work ONLY WITH STAIR SLOPES OF 32° to 37°.

Installing Posts, Post Sleeve Skirts, and Post Sleeves for Stair Rails
1.  Install posts, post sleeve skirts, and post sleeves according to standard Transcend railing instructions. See Page 2
  • In most cases, a post and post sleeve longer than 39" will be needed on the lower section of the stair rail to accommodate stair angle.
  • Make sure top and bottom posts for stairs are installed at nose of each tread.
