The CPTZ concealed post base provides a clean, concealed look while providing a 1" standoff height above concrete. The 1" standoff reduces the potential for decay at the post end and satisfies code requirements for posts that are exposed to weather, water splash or in basements.
- The CPTZ is tested and load-rated for uplift, download and lateral load.
- The CPTZ anchorage can either be cast-in-place or retrofitted with adhesive or mechanical anchors.
- Solutions have been calculated per ACI 318, Appendix D to determine their allowable load in different concrete configurations.
