The Titan Galvanized Post Anchor Kit with Screws can assist in building a wood railing system on virtually any surface. It is a non-engineered post anchor solution for use on decks or surfaces less than 30" above ground. The post anchors help keep the 4x4 or 6x6 raised off the floor of the surface to deter the posts coming in contact with standing water which will keep the posts higher and drier for longer life. The galvanized steel is black powder coated over hot dip zinc to give a great look for a long time.
For best performance and ease of installation use with species ranging from cedar, spruce, redwood, pine, hem-fir with moisture content (m.c.) of 12%-20%. To comply with residential engineering guidelines, do not use any species with specific gravity (density) less than the lowest of the above recommended species. ACQ compatible. Hardwoods require a hole saw and forstner bit installation technique as the tube of the anchor can not be impaled into the wood easily.
