Simpson Strong-Tie covers all of the bases with their product offering for Post Caps and Bases. Here is a brief description for the different types. ABA/ABU/ABW - Adjustable and Standoff Post Bases. The AB series of retrofit adjustable post bases provide a 1" standoff for the post, are slotted for adjustability and can be installed with nails, Strong-Drive SD Connector screws or bolts. Depending on the application needs, these adjustable standoff post bases are designed for versatility, cost-effectiveness and maximum uplift performance.
CPTZ - Concealed Post Tie. The CPTZ concealed post base provides a clean, concealed look while providing a 1" standoff height above concrete. The 1" standoff reduced the potential for decay at the post end and satisfies code requirements for posts that are exposed to weather, water splash or in basements.
EPB - Elevated Post Bases. These cast-in-place post bases provide a secure connection to the concrete and the code-required 1" standoff to help prevent rot at the post end.
RPBZ - Retrofit Post Base. The new RPBZ Retrofit Post Base is designed to reinforce existing posts and columns. The single, versatile model will fit on any size post consisting of a double 2x4 or larger. RPBZ can also be used to reinforce new post-base connections, such as braced carports, patio covers, decks and other structures.
AC/ACE/LPCZ/LCE/RTC - Post Caps. Available in several different options the LCE4's universal design provides high capacity while eliminating the need for rights and lefts. LPCZ-Adjustable design allows greater connection versatility.
BC/BCS - Post Caps. The BCS allows for the connection of 2-2x's to a 4x post or 3-2x's to a 6x post. Double shear nailing between beam and post gives added strength. The BC series offers dual purpose post cap/base for light cap or base connections.
PCZ/EPCZ - Post Caps. The next-generation PCZ/EPCZ post caps are designed with their post and beam flanges in-line so that one PCZ/EPCZ model can accommodate several post sizes.
LCB/CB - Column Bases. The LCB/CB column bases help connect posts to the concrete for a broad range of members. The LCB is for solid sawn posts, while the CB bases accommodate glulam and solid sawn members ranging from 4x4 up to 12x12.
PB/PBS - Regular and Standoff Post Bases. The PBS features a 1" standoff height. It reduces the potential for decay at post and column ends.
