Simpson EPC6Z 6X End Post Cap - ZMAX Finish

SKU: EPC6Z
$27.49

The Simpson Strong-Tie EPCZ series of post caps are used to attach the top of posts to beams. The next-generation EPC6Z post caps are designed with their post and beam flanges in-line so that one PC4Z model can accommodate several post sizes. The EPC6Znow uses easier-to-install 10d common nails. An alternate choice of fasteners is Strong-Drive® #9x1 1/2" SD Connector screws. The EPC6Z post cap is approved to be installed with the specified nails or with Strong-Drive SD connector screws. The Strong-Tie EPC6Z post base features a G185 ZMAX galvanized finish for added corrosion resistance and requires the use of hot-dip galvanized fasteners which meet the specifications of ASTM A153.


Installation:
  • Use all specified fasteners.
  • Do not install bolts into pilot holes.

NOTE: The correct fasteners installed in the correct position must be used to achieve published load values
