How to Guidelines

  • Install methods vary between railing styles.To view install-options go to the railing style you like. Then click on a post of that style. Once on post-page, scroll to bottom of page for install info. Be sure to choose a railing style that your application can accommodate.
  • There are five styles: Gallery Rail -- Shelf Rail -- Cabinet Rail -- Retro Rail and Mid-century Rail
  • Sketch how you want the brass railing to appear. This is helpful in determining design.


Mid Century Posts
  • Placement of Mid Century Modern Rail Posts is subjective.
  • Post should be spaced equally across front.
  • Typical spacing between posts, across front or back, is approximately 10” – 16” apart.
  • Formula to Calculate amount of Center Posts:
    1. Divide railing length, by estimated distance between posts.
    2. Subtract 1, this equals the number of center posts.
    3. Add 2 end posts, wall mount posts or corner posts to finish
    4. If total number of center-posts is a fraction, then distance between posts will need to be adjusted to equal an even number of posts.
  • If mid century modern rail will be straight without sides, use end posts on each end
  • If mid century modern rail will have sides, use corner posts as a junction between front or back and sides.
  • Please note if using sides: side-spacing often differs from front-spacing
  • Mid-century post-base diameter is 1-1/4”. These posts should be inset a minimum of 3/4” from edge.
Brass Rod
  • Brass Rod is available in 2 lengths: 36” and 72”
  • If rod is not long enough, it can be joined to another rod, within a post.
  • If needed, rod can be cut shorter with a hacksaw
  • Measure length of each straight run.
    If your design is a straight rail, with no sides, it is one run.
    However if it has more than once side, such as 3 sided it would then have 3 runs.
  • As rod is 36” or 72”, it often needs to be cut shorter or joined with a longer section to complete a run.
  • To calculate total amount needed: add together total number of rods, for each run. Consider that you may have leftover rod from one run to satisfy another run.

Decorative and Functional

Mid Century Modern Rail is both decorative and functional. This minimalist style railing is used to outline top perimeters of furniture, shelving and cabinets. It adds stability to items placed behind it such as books, china, bottles and nick-knacks. The posts and rod are made of solid brass. Brass is un-finished. It can be polished to a shiny glow or darkened to look old. Attach to surface-top with screws.
