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.


Material: 18 gauge


Finish: Zmax - Triple Coated Zinc for Corrosion Resistance
Some products available in ZMAX®; see Corrosion-Resistance.


Installation:  
Do not install bolts into pilot holes.

BCS: install dome nails on beam; drive nails at an angle through the beam into the post below to achieve the table loads

BC: install with HDG 16dx2 1/2" joist hanger nails (N16)
Fasteners Each Side

SEE RECOMMENDED FASTENERS ATTACHED BELOW


Post bases do not provide adequate resistance to prevent members from rotating about the base and therefore are not recommended for non top-supported installations (such as fences or unbraced carports).
