Suggestions for avoiding LTL freight delivery charges To avoid additional LTL shipping charges, 2 lengths of hand rail may be joined together by using a rail bolt (#1020) or a #20 tandem cap fitting (pin top newel post required with fitting) to achieve lengths longer than 8'. Typically any rail over 8' long should have additional support in the middle for safety.(Check your local building codes)
