Post cap for a 6.75 wide beam


Hello,
I have a 10.5 X 6.75 GLULAM beam that will be sitting on a 6X6 post (5.5X5.5) for a porch roof.
I cant find a post cap that will do this? What options are there? Thanx!
Keith

USP will custom fabricate hangers and brackets if you can't find something in their inventory that will work. You can search their inventory online. It is insanely expensive however. My suggestion would be to have a fabricator/welder make you a steel bracket. If it will be used outdoors, powder coat it. If you're pulling a building permit, make sure the inspector won't require a listed/tested post cap for this connection.
