PC/EPC Post Caps


PC and EPC caps provide a custom connection for post-beam combinations at medium design loads.

PC and EPC Discontinued in 2015

The PC and EPC post caps are being discontinued and will have limited availability. Simpson Strong-Tie recommends substituting the PCZ and EPCZ for the PC and EPC, respectively.

Material: PC—12 gauge; PC-16—16 gauge

Additional Corrosion Protection

These products are available with additional corrosion protection. Additional products on this page may also be available with this option, check with Simpson Strong-Tie for details.

These models are approved for installation with the Strong-Drive SD Structural-Connector screw.
See the load values below.

Table

  1. Allowable loads have been increased for wind or earthquake with no further increase allowed; reduce where other loads govern.
  2. Lateral loads are in the direction parallel to the beam.
  3. Allowable loads are for nails only.
  4. Uplift loads do not apply to splice conditions.
  5. Spliced conditions must be detailed by the Designer to transfer tension loads between spliced members by means other than the post cap.
  6. Structural composite lumber columns have sides that show either the wide face or the edges of the lumber strands/veneers. Values in the tables reflect installation into the wide face. See technical bulletin T-C-SCLCLM for values on the narrow face (edge).
  7. NAILS: 16d = 0.162" dia. x 3 1/2" long. See other nail sizes and information.
