There’s an Abbott-Wade newel cap to suit every staircase in every home
Flat Bullnose Newel Caps
Simple yet modern, our most popular newel cap is the flat bullnose cap which pairs beautifully with our square and contemporary twisted newel posts. Our bespoke service means we’ll make sure the cap fits – even if you have an oversized newel!
Pyramid Newel Caps
Our beautifully crafted pyramid newel post tops add elegant detail to the newel top and compliment addition features such as the subtly bevelled edges of our stop chamfered newels which soften the sharper joins between two faces of the post.
Ball Newel Top
A more traditional newel top found in many period homes is the ball cap. This classic newel top is most commonly found atop turned newel posts.
Acorn Newel Cap
Appearing as the name would suggest, acorn newel tops are typically combined with traditionally turned newel posts in classically styled period homes.
Shaped Newel Posts
One option is to do away with a newel cap altogether and have a bespoke shaped top on the newel.
Continuous handrail eliminates the need for newel caps as the handrail flows continuously and uninterrupted over spindles and posts from the bottom to the top with a series of curved components often ending in a flourish called a volute.
Stainless Steel Balustrades
As with continuous handrail, steel staircase balustrades do not require newel post caps and the rails continue over the top of the baluster posts and therefore no capping is required to decorate the posts.
No Newel Post
More Bespoke Options
Because we offer a bespoke service, from time to time customers come to us with a distinctive idea in mind for their staircase post caps such as shaped newel tops or a stainless steel cap. We’re always happy to accommodate these ideas as best. So if you have a style in mind you like elsewhere, even if you’ve not seen it in our standard range – just ask!
