Hampton Newels are the 3500, 3503, 3505, 3513, 4270, 4272, 4500, 4503, 4504, and the 4505.
Hampton Newels have a strong, robust look to them. The turning design is a double ring enclosing a single notch style. There are three notches on the post – one on top of the turning and two at the bottom of the turning.
Regarding the standard 3” form: all three notches are identical (2-3/16” thick). The thinnest part of the post is 2-1/16” (the first part of the turning) and the thickest part of the post is 3” (the face and the base). This is an overall variation of 15/16”. The ins and outs of the Hampton turning design do not fluctuate as much as other styles of Newels.
Hampton Newels are produced in both 3 and 3.5 inches. The 3500, 3503, 3505, and 3513 are 3” posts, while the 4270, 4271, 4275, 4503, and 4505 are 3.5” posts. The face, turning, and base become slightly thicker when the Newel is turned with a 3.5” blank post.
The first section of the turning is a notch enclosed in two rings. The notch is 2-3/16” in diameter for the 3″ posts. The turning then tapers outwards for 6 inches, and back inwards for 1.75 inches. The last section of the turning is a duplication of the initial section (two notches enclosed in four rings). This part is 4.75 inches long.
The entire 16” turning design sits on top of the base, which ranges from 15 to 26 inches, depending on the particular Hampton Newel. The 3500 Ball Top has a 7” face, 16” turning, and 21” base. This post can be produced in both 48” and 59” long. Only the base is extended when the Newel is produced in 59” long In both the 48″ and 56″ form, the face and the turning remain the same (only the base is extended). The 3500 Pin Top has a longer 27” turning, and a shorter 15” base, which extends to 26” if the post is made in the 59” form.
The collection of balusters that match well with Hampton posts are the 5200, 5205, 5300, 5105, and the 5005.
Choosing a baluster profile is another exciting part of the installation process. Your stair system’s entire effect is largely determined by which baluster you choose. There are many different profiles available for you to pick from, which will enable you to tie the whole “picture” together regarding a major focal point in your home. All of our baluster profiles are available in Primed, Red Oak, White Oak, Poplar, Soft or Hard Maple, American Cherry, Brazilian Cherry, Beech, Walnut, and Mahogany.
