Brackets are available in two different heights , allowing them to be used with just about any railing system on the market .
Standard Brackets ( Tall brackets are 2 " taller than the standard bracket )
COPPER OR ALUMINUM FLASHING
Turncraft is now offering real flashing for our most popular sizes of columns - the 8 ", 10 ", and 12 " round and square Poly-Classic ® FRP columns with Tuscan caps . Flashing is available in either copper or aluminum . Flashing is 3 / 4 " larger than abacus size , to be folded over the edges of the cap , held in place with construction adhesive ( not supplied ). Flashing for other sizes and styles of caps are available . Call for more information .
Crimp edges of flashing over sides of cap . Secure in place with construction adhesive .
For structural FRP columns , the install kit consists of 4 ABS brackets ( 2 for top of column and 2 for bottom ) and fasteners required for standard installation . We recommend 2 kits for columns 16 " and up : this will allow the installer to use 4 brackets at the top and bottom of the column . When installed , the cap and base will conceal these brackets and hardware .
Each kit contains six nylon locking straps with 1 / 8 ” spacers and one quart ( 1.85 lb .) automotive body filler . For columns over 12 foot in height , two kits will be required per column . Turncraft recommends using an abrasive ( Carborundum or similar ) or carbide blade to trim the shaft . Split columns are not load bearing .
