When installed on a deck, OWT Post Bases require blocking beneath the surface of the deck. The specific type, size, or degree of blocking depends on the requirements of the structure being built. We always suggest you consult a local engineer or construction professional for what would be sufficient for your project and to meet local building code.
DeckStairs - In order to use our Rail Saddles in any form (either separately or w/ Post Bases) you'll need to use relief cuts to make them work - they don't bend to an angle no matter the rise. OZCO
David, Great question - our post bases are set for 4x4 or 6x6 square posts and you might be able to find a way (?) to retrofit our product to your specific needs/applications - part of the issue is going to be the base is square and unless the sizes are just right the fit on all 4 sides may not be accurate. Thanks, OZCO Customer Service
Canuck, Great question - yes, the middle post orientation is easy as each plate that goes on the post fits on any side - they are adjustable and are separate pieces from the base. You would simply put the plates that have the rail saddles in a straight line instead of being at a 90 degree from each other. Thanks, OZCO Sales & Customer Service
All of our Ornamental Wood Ties hardware is black powder coated, however they can be spray painted any color you like. Because they are powder coated and galvanized, the paint will not damage the hardware. Thank you!
This kit includes all 4 sides.
