Hi Sezza, thank you for your question. You can use these anchors on concrete however you would need to use a concrete anchor, such as a Tap Con or sleeve anchor, sold separately. Thank you!
Hi George, thanks for your question. As long as the deck height is less than 600mm, or roughtly 2 feet, then these anchors would be a great option for you. For deck heights over 600mm, you will need a code compliant rail system. Please have a look at our RailBlazers line of aluminum railing if your deck height is over 600mm. Thanks very much George!
Hi Larry, thanks for your question. We haven't actually tested this to know how paint would adhere to the anchor. One of the paint specialists in your local Home Depot store may be able to help as well. Thanks Larry!
Hi Posty, thank you for your question. The thickness of the bottom of this post base is approximately 1/4", so the distance between the bottom of the post and the surface on which it sits will be about 1/4 inch. There is also a hole in the bottom for drainage so there won't be any post rot. We recommend using treated 4x4 posts or cedar 4x4 posts. Thank you.
I used this as the base of a 4"x4" to support a corner of my porch. To help form a more stable base and keep the bottom of my 4"x4" further from the ground, I screwed this base into a 1"x6"x6" piece of pressure-treated wood. Works perfectly.
We will use this again.
Hi Butch, thanks for your question. Yes, these plastic post anchors do have a UV inhibitor added. Thank you!
Hi Zeke, thanks for your question. The base flange on this anchor is 5-3/4" x 5-3/4". Please let us know if you have any additional questions. Thanks Zeke!
Hi 2Cent, thanks for your question. Yes the plastic post anchors do have drainage holes. Thank you!
Hi Kizmillia, thank you for your question. The base of the anchor is 5-3/4 inches x 5-3/4" inches. Thank you.
