Hangers: Simpson PCZ and EPCZ Post Caps

The next-generation Simpson Strong-Tie PCZ and EPCZ post caps now feature in-line post and header flanges, which provide more flexibility in choosing the post size while also enabling easier installation when making the post-to-beam connection.

These new post caps are designed to accommodate several 4x or 6x post sizes for a variety of applications, including decks, patio covers and interior framing applications.

The 16-gauge PCZ and EPCZ now can be fastened with easier-to-install 10d common or #10d x 2 1/2" nails, as well as #9 x 1 1/2" Simpson Strong-Tie Strong-Drive SD Connector screws.

By replacing the PC and EPC post caps, respectively, the PCZ and EPCZ represent how product innovation can help with easier installation as well as inventory control.

The new in-line flange design allows one PCZ or EPCZ to be installed with several 4x or 6x post sizes. Fewer overall models to accommodate multiple post sizes helps streamline specification, product ordering and inventory management.

Other key benefits include:

  • ZMAX coating offers additional corrosion protection for exterior and preservative-wood applications
  • Compact, optimized design can be easily hidden with finish materials when architectural design is important
  • Center-of-post guide is stamped on part for easy alignment
