by Dan

What length of concrete screws should be used? The web page shows a packet of 1/4" x 2 1/4" but for wood surfaces everything suggests using a 3" long fastener.

Concrete Installations

I would like to see an application of these post anchors in concrete. I find almost no information on the Internet. How far from the edge of the concrete is minimum to avoid breaking out using concrete anchors, etc.

I have the perfect situation for these anchors but need more info.

DIY Replacing 6x6 Posts on Elevated Concrete Deck

by Tom
(Georgia)

I need to replace existing 6X6 posts on 12' high deck.

Can new posts be placed directly on existing patio?
The patio is 4" thick concrete 10' X 12' with the posts to be placed about 16" from the outside edge.




Editor's Comments

If you are planning on replacing the posts with wood posts again, then one of your best solutions would be to use the 6x6 Titan Post Anchor and some concrete screws.

This would be a perfect use of the post anchor and a simple and long term solution. The finished wood railing will be very strong and residential code compliant at post spacing up to 96" apart (for 36" tall posts).

Use one of the post anchors a a template and predrill the corner holes in the concrete. Then install the anchor to the post as usual. Come back and install four 2.5" to 3" long 1/4" diameter concrete screws.

The GRK or Tapcon screw will work fine.

Titan on Concrete Patio Surface

by Bill
(Alabama)

I am installing a wood railing system on an elevated concrete patio.

Assuming that the concrete is cured, does the Titan anchor provide the lateral support necessary for this type of railing?
