mortised and notched postMortised Post and Rail Systems along with Notched Post and Rail Systems are two of American Timber and Steel’s biggest specialties. These post and rail systems look great lining commercial parking lots, along driveways, parks, and condominium complexes.

While we manufacture some standard post and rail systems displayed in our catalog, we can manufacture your systems to nearly any design that can be imagined. All we need is some basic specifications from you.


First, choose your wood. We use Southern Yellow Pine in our Standard Posts and Rails to give you a very strong system which will last for decades. Southern Yellow Pine also accepts the treating chemicals deep into the wood. But nearly any other species is available including Red Pine, Western Red Cedar, White Oak, Douglas Fir or others.


Second, choose your system, mortised or notched. The mortised system has the rail going through the center of the post without any necessary fasteners. The notched system has a section cut out from one side of the post to allow the rail to be attached with carriage bolts. Third, choose a post top design. Decide whether you would like your post top flat, roofed, pyramid, Gothic, slanted, or design your own. Your imagination is the limit.


Fourth, choose the size of your posts and rail. The posts can be from 4x4 through 12x12 and the rails can be from 1x4 through 6x12, however we can accommodate you with larger sizes upon request.

Now, feel free to customize your posts and rails with routs, grooves or chamfers. When that’s complete, decide weather you want a smooth (S4S) finish or a Rough Sawn finish.

Finally, decide on the treatment. ACQ is the environmentally friendly solution, or, choose economical CCA for these guide rail systems. These waterborne treatments work great for the softwood species, but if you choose hardwoods, ask about our Creosote and Pentachlorophenol options. Please see page 38 and 39 for more information on these treatments.


So choose one of our standard systems or design your own. Either way, American Timber and Steel will send you a solid, strong, great looking post and rail system that will provide the safety and aesthetics you will be proud of for years.
