ORDERING INSTRUCTIONS

Here is a quick guide to show you how to order the right amount of CityPost product.  Lets look at an example deck:

 

STEP ONE: Determine the number of Flat Segments in your design

 

Now look at cutaway of this example design with only the deck showing and segments measured.

 

You will notice that we calculate 4 segments on the horizontal part of the deck. The last segments will be counted as stairs.

 

STEP TWO: Calculate stair segment lengths.

Now we calculate two stair segments on the diagonal at 10’ 4”.  Be sure to include a full 11” step on the bottom landing and measure all the way back to the deck surface as shown.

We will need two segments for this part of the order.  On on each side of the stairs at 10 feet 4 inches in length.

STEP THREE: Calculate Segments to Order

 

All segments must be rounded up to 3 foot intervals.  The table below shows the results of our segment analysis:
