Question

Deck Hardware - beam to footing


Howdy,

I'm planning a low-profile deck, about 18" from surface to grade. I've seen plans that involve setting beams directly in anchors set into the concrete footings. However, I can't find any anchors that would work... only ones I find are post anchors meant for a 4x4 (3.5 nominal) so a doubled 2x10 beam (total 3" nominal) wouldn't be a snug fit into the anchor. Are there anchors made specifically to set into the footings, then take a doubled 2x? beam? Anyone know where I can find that?

thanks!
Steve

Just shim out the 1/2" space w/ 1/2"x4"x9" pt. (Rip a 1/2" piece off the side of a pt 4x4)
