Heavy Duty Deck Framing Connectors


Where can I get H.D. Framing connectors -
One's that use 4 to 6 bolts.
6 X 6 to 6 X 6 - post to beams.
Didn't find any at "Simpson".

Heavy Duty Deck Framing Connectors


what are you attaching, is common sizing, is often used in deck construction, but also building, what is your project?

Is Simpson doesn't have what I need I have a local guy fabricate it and send it off to the galvanizer.

We usually have things custom made or we use bulk strapping if it'll get covered.

Check on powder coating vs galvanizing, sometimes it's cheaper to powder coat and in most environments it's more than enough.

You should have been able to find those in the Simpson catalog, check under CC and CCU post/column caps.

Thanks Andy!
Close - but, not quite what we're looking for!

Thanks again for the replies!
We like "kwickfishron"s advice.
We priced that out - kind of expensive.
What we're going to use is a 90 degree metal angle - about 1/4 to 3/8's
inches thick -
at least 2 bolts through the beam and 2 through the post.
This is a retrofit.
