With more and more demand for outside living and a greater demand for exotic timbers, why spoil the look with the galvanised look of traditional post supports?
Simpson Strong-Tie understands that the more important job of post support means dealing with uplift from wind. The Concealed Post Tie or CPT from Simpson Strong-Tie ticks this box and remains almost hidden for a great finish. The CPT range is available to suit a 90mm, 140mm and 200mm post size to accommodate all of the applications you might have.
A 25mm standoff is important to ensure that the timber post does not sit in water and this will increase the life of the post.
Having a black powder-coated finish really sets off the popular Hardwood posts that are being used.
All of the CPT is made out of ZMAX®, a propriety coating that is double the thickness of galvanisation than traditional connectors, which gives you a highly durable post base. The kits include extra hold down washers for fixing to the concrete and dowel pins to provide the uplift. The blade of the CPT doubles as the template for the hole positions that you need, so it is all in the box. Fantastic.
