Ezipier – flush to building line

Designed so piers do not protrude outside the building line making it a neater finish for all trades.

Ezibrace – high capacity, fast installation

A high capacity bracing system that’s easy to install on low-set and high-set elevated floors.

Engineered and

Ezipier heads and bases have been engineered in a variety of sizes to suit most site loads.


Cast iron designed top and base providing maximum strength and corrosion resistance.

Benefits of Ezipier

Benefits of Ezipier

True adjustability: Adjusting an Ezipier head is done by turning a nut not by removing bolts or tek screws.

Safe perimeter: Because Ezipier heads are designed for a flush finish there are no protruding components to hurt you when walking by.

Clear termite inspection point: Solid threaded rod – simple and easy to inspect, doesn’t interfere with cladding (note ant caps which can interfere with cladding are still only inspection points not “barriers”).

Base plate protector: The first pier system to provide a high capacity (5mm thick) composite protector to separate the base plate from the concrete footing for added protection against ponding of water.

Affordable flexibility & convenience: The range of Ezipier heads have been designed to suit standard post sizes to handle most residential loads of up to 5m heights and for ease of purchase from local merchants.

Protection: Now you have the option to choose posts with higher protection when required to suit site conditions such as coastal areas.

Non-combustible: Can be used in bushfire prone areas.

Benefits of Ezibrace


Minimal wastage: With the Ezibrace joiner utilise small offcuts of SHS bracing tube without losing capacity.

Sloping sites: Piers and posts are typically used on uneven sites where it makes sense to have a cross bracing system like Ezibrace that allows for bracing posts of different heights.

Benefits of Ezibrace

More Info

Cut installation time in ½: We still can’t believe how easy we’ve made it! During onsite Ezibrace testing we found that most sub-floor bracing will take about half the time compared to systems we’ve used in the past. It’s quick to install and in high wind applications the Ezibrace system can be adapted to achieve a higher capacity so you need fewer bracing bays to resist wind loads.

High lateral bracing capacity: The design of the Ezipier paddle and joiner allows for a high number of screws if required by your engineer. This combined with the 30×30 SHS bracing tube can provide you a high capacity to restrain from lateral forces between 5°- 60° degree angles.


These are some recent tv shows and projects that feature Ezipier. From supporting decks to homes on sloping sites to high load commercial floors. Ezipier can also be used for re-stumping and rectification work to get floor back to level.

Choosing posts for your project

Compatible post sizes: 90x90x2.0 | 89x89x3.5

Get The Right Size

The Ezipier adjustable heads and bases have been designed to work easily with two common SHS (post) sizes. These can be readily sourced from steel merchants and many hardware and building supply outlets. This also gives you the flexibility to choose a posts size to match what you’re building from a deck close to the ground up to a high set house sub-floor.

Get The Right Protection

You also have the added benefit of choosing between different protective coatings to suit the level of protection required for your environment. SHS posts (also referred to as tube) are available in two different coating finishes: Standard galvanised steel and batched hot-dip galvanising.

Our History

Building Differently From The Start

If you remember the days, like we do, when brick piers were the norm you’ll understand how far subfloor supports (stumps or piers) have come. At Spantec Systems not only do we make the adjustable Ezipier and Ezibrace but we also invented the whole concept of using a steel pier to replace a brick pier more than 20 years ago.

The steel Ezipier was then available only as part of our complete designed Boxspan steel sub-floor system. But now we’ve made the decision to unlock some of our offering and give the opportunity for anyone who builds sub-floors to use our piers and bracing components. So no matter what type of bearers and joists you’re using; LVL’s, hardwood, steel RHS and “C” sections there is an adjustable pier head to suit.
