Product Details

Post and column bases secure the bottom of posts or columns to concrete and are perfect for decks or patio covers. Models are available for attaching to existing hardened concrete, wet concrete, as well as wood. The cast-in-place EPB series provides a secure connection to the concrete and the code-required 1-in standoff to help prevent rot at the post end.
  • Added standoff adjustability to suit a variety of applications
  • Install in wet concrete
  • Provides the code-required 1-in standoff when properly installed, allows up to 2-1/2-in of standoff above concrete (if desired)
  • Not recommended for non top-supported installations (such as fences or unbraced carports)
  • Nominal post size: 4x4
  • Hot-dip galvanization offers extra corrosion resistance for exterior and treated-wood applications
  • Install with 3/4 in. Dia anchor bolt and 16d common nails or 10 x 1-1/2 in. strong-drive SD screws

A:  ​Hi Kathy, thank you for your message. We want to make sure we address your question regarding the EPB Elevated Post Base. The recommended adhesive for the EPB is SET-3G™ High-Strength Epoxy Adhesive or SET-XP® High-Strength Epoxy Adhesive, if the temperature is under 50 degrees you would want to use AT-XP® High-Strength Acrylic Adhesive . If you need more information or have additional questions, please contact the Simpson Strong-Tie Customer Service team at 800-999-5099. We look forward to hearing from you. -Stacy

    Q:Are they strong enough if setting in wet concrete for a shed during hurricanes or do I need to also install tie downs?

    Answer This Question

    A:  If you secure them to the Support being as well on your deck or whatever you're hoping to hold down and then it's also up to how well it was built but yes I would trust them to hold my deck down which is what I use them on during a hurricane

      A:  Hello Nina, these post-bases are designed and tested to resist the downward forces and uplift forces that can be applied to the structure. The uplift forces are generally produced by wind and would be considered by a designer/engineer when detailing the plans of the structure. We (Simpson) can only provide the capacity of the EPB Post Base in relation to these forces. Whether or not that capacity is suitable for your specific build would be determined by the designer. If you would like to reach out to our Tech Support team for further assistance, please call us at (800)999-5099. Thank you, Ricardo.

        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Hi RichG, this is Colin from Simpson Strong-Tie. The required number of bases will depend on several factors including the building geometry and load resistance requirements. We would recommend contacting a local design professional for further evaluation and to determine the # of bases to be used. If you need more information or have additional questions, please contact the Simpson Strong-Tie Customer Service team at 800-999-5099. Thank you.

          These post bases allowed us to fine tune adjustments to deck beam heights. Much appreciated.

          Just installed four of these for a ground level deck. Worked well. There were some welding bumps on the inside, but the wood would easily conform around them.

          Worked like a charm!
          I used this to shore up a sagging deck. The ability to use a crescent wrench to slowly work the deck back to level was easy on the back and the mind. I highly recommend these for this purpose. They fit perfect on a pressure treated 4x4.

          The old post base was far superior. These allow too much flex to the posts no matter how much cement is used. I need to set more posts, but I will not use this base. Please bring back the previous one.
