Description

Choose this Simpson strong-tie post cap for your next decking project. Sturdy steel with a triple zinc finish ensures rust resistance. This galvanized post cap is an effective option for outdoor performance. Trust the double shear nailing design for greater strength with fewer nails. This steel post cap is 6 in T x 6 in W.
  • Install with 16d common nails
  • ZMAX galvanization offers extra corrosion resistance for exterior and treated-wood applications
  • Provides a positive connection for a post to a wood deck
  • Stronger than angled nailing or screw fastening
  • Reduces the chance of the post splitting and eliminates nailing into end grain
  • Not recommended for non top-supported installations (such as fences or unbraced carports)
  • Nominal size: Double 3x beam, 6x post
  • Made from 18-gauge steel

Do you have a bracket for 8” beam over 8” by 8” post

Asked by: Burke 52
Hello Burke, We do not offer BCS style cap for 8x8 timber. You can consider one of the following caps instead: BC8, PC8Z, or EPC8Z. Note that BC8 is not offered in ZMAX finish for exterior applications. Regards
