Simpson Strong-Tie CPT88Z Concealed Post Tie
The new CPTZ88 is an 8 x 8 post base that incorporates a knife plate with a standoff base. It achieves a clean, concealed look while providing a 1″ standoff height above concrete. The CPTZ is installed with 1/2″ diameter galvanized pins (supplied) and Two 1/2″ anchors (Not Supplied). The 1″ standoff height is code-required when supporting permanent structures that are exposed to weather or water splash, or in basements. The standoff reduces the potential for decay at post or column ends.
