A few months ago we were introduced to a new type of timber connector used in post and beam construction called a Connext Connector by the team at Connext. We instantly liked the simplicity of the connector as well as the ease of use and installation.
The post base is a piece of anodized aluminum in the shape of a “T”. One end gets screwed (in the case of this detail) with either a SKS or SKR concrete screws to the concrete, and the other end goes into a slot cut into the base of the post. The post is then secured to the connector with some metal pins.
