Outdoor Accents Post Base Kit

1. Post Bases

Simpson post bases successfully secure posts or columns to concrete. They are perfect for pergolas, patio covers, and other top-supported structures. Strong-Tie Decorative APB & APVB post bases feature a 1" standoff that prevents post-end rot and protects the integrity of your structure. Additionally, Simpson Decorative Post Base Side Plates provide a clean, finished look to these pre-installed post bases. 

2. Joist Hangers

Joist hangers are one of the most fundamental and useful connectors for construction projects. They successfully hold wood joists in place for decking, floors, ceilings, and more. Simpson joist hangers are available in different sizes to accommodate 2x4", 2x6", 2x10", 4x6", and 6x10" rough cut and dimensional lumber. 

3. L Straps and T Straps

Additionally, L straps and T straps provide reinforcement for connections where two pieces of lumber intersect at a 90-degree angle.

4. Flat Straps

Outdoor Accents Flat straps are ideal for creating a secure connection for nominal or rough-cut lumber. The flat strap kits are available in sizes to connect 4x and 6x nominal or rough-cut lumber.

5. Deck Joist Ties

Simpson Outdoor Accents deck joist ties successfully attach joists to the side of support posts. 

6. Angle Brackets

Angle brackets also known as “decorative corner brackets” make connections between beams, rafters, and more. Structural angles help create perfect 90-degree connections between lumber and can be used in a wide variety of projects.

7. Gable Plates

Decorative Gable Plates kits provide reinforcement and strength between a wood beam and three angled wood braces while adding a decorative appeal to the structure. Fasteners Plus offers Outdoor Accents gable plate kits for 6:12, 8:12, and 12:12 roof pitches.

8. Gazebo Ties

The Simpson Strong-Tie Gazebo kits have the necessary hardware to add strength and rigidity to three, six, and eight-sided gazebo connections. The high quality and innovative design tightly secures the rafters to the gazebo. This connector prevents the possibility of the gazebo being blown over by high winds.

9. Rigid Ties

Rigid tie connectors can be used on any project to connect a member to another wood member. These connectors provide a much easier and stronger connection when compared to angled fastening such as toe nailing. Outdoor Accents rigid tie kits are versatile connectors that can be used for many outdoor projects. They are commonly used for wood fence construction, railings, and utility furniture.

10. Knee Braces

Lastly, the Outdoor Accents Knee brace connectors make the installation of bracing supports fast and easy. Fasteners Plus offers knee braces for use with 4x and 6x lumber.
