Wet Set Post Foundation Brackets for Strength and Durability
Midwest Perma-Column’s Sturdi-Wall and Sturdi-Wall Plus post brackets for concrete are the industry’s gold standard for securing wooden posts to concrete foundations. Both offer robust connections. Sturdi-Wall Plus, our wet set post bracket, offers unbeatable post foundation strength and durability.
Sturdi-Wall brackets are ideal for projects where the foundation is already poured and cured. Sturdi-Wall Plus brackets, on the other hand, are designed for wet-set concrete applications and offer an even stronger connection thanks to four 18” robotically welded rebar anchors. Both post foundations offer several key benefits:
- Superior Structural Integrity: Our post brackets for concrete provide a robust and secure connection between wooden posts and concrete foundations. This provides unmatched stability and durability for your construction project.
- Enhanced Safety: The Midwest Perma Column post brackets for concrete mitigate safety hazards associated with unstable connections, such as shifting, settling, or potential structural failure.
- Cost-Efficiency: While Sturdi-Wall brackets offer cost savings by eliminating the need for a concrete subcontractor, Sturdi-Wall wet set post brackets take this a step further. Because they eliminate the need for drilling, project costs and timelines are reduced. Because of their durability, these post brackets for concrete improve builder profitability by substantially reducing warranty post replacements.
- Ease of Code Compliance: Both Sturdi-Wall and Sturdi-Wall Plus post brackets for concrete are certified by the International Code Council (ICC). This ensures compliance with international building codes and facilitates quicker project approvals and permits.

Step-by-Step Instructions for Installing Wet Set Post Brackets
Standard Sturdi-Wall brackets are renowned for their straightforward installation process. They can be installed quickly by drilling them into the dry concrete foundation.
For those seeking the highest level of strength and durability for their post foundations, we recommend our Sturdi-Wall wet set post brackets. Let’s explore the step-by-step process of installing these innovative post foundation brackets:
1. Site Preparation
Begin by setting up the concrete forms at the designated location and elevation. Make sure that the site is clean and free of debris to facilitate a smooth installation process.
2. Bracket Placement
Carefully place the Sturdi-Wall wet set brackets in the wet concrete. Ensure they are correctly aligned and positioned according to your project’s specifications.
3. Air Pocket Elimination
Gently tap the bracket to eliminate any air pockets around the rebar legs. This step is crucial for ensuring a secure and stable connection.
4. Bracket Securing
Temporary bracing is required to secure the Sturdi-Wall wet set brackets until the concrete sets. This ensures accurate bracket placement and alignment, which is critical for the structure’s overall stability.
5. Curing Process
Allow the concrete to cure for a minimum of 7 days before attaching wooden posts to the Sturdi-Wall wet set brackets. For maximum design loading, a curing period of 30 days is recommended.
