orientation of base for fence

This question is from 4 in. x 4 in. 12-Gauge Standoff Column Base with SDS Screws
Asked by

October 6, 2015
For a fence that is fixed at one end, how does one orient this product in order to minimize lateral wobble? When inserting them into the concrete, are the plates oriented along the axis that the fence runs, or perpendicular? Just to be sure we understand each other, if the plates are mounted perpendicular to the running of the fence, they are visible on the face of the fence post as one stands back from the fence. The mounting bolts would then also be perpendicular to the running of the fence and the end of the bolt and nut would stick out on one side. thanks for any help

The CBSQ44-SDS2.5 is only rated for vertical loads (uplift and download) and is not recommended for non top-supported installation. Non top-supported structures such as railings, unbraced carports, fences, arbors etc. need to resist lateral loads such as wind, earthquake, climbing kids, people leaning, etc. at the top.

The CBSQ44-SDS2.5 is only rated for vertical loads (uplift and download) and is not recommended for non top-supported installation. Non top-supported structures such as railings, unbraced carports, fences, arbors etc. need to resist lateral loads such as wind, earthquake, climbing kids, people leaning, etc. at the top. Those lateral loads at the top of post translate to significant moment loads at the bottom. We do not have a base or other connector rated to resist these moment loads.
The E-Z Base products (FPBB44, FPBS44, FPBM44E) are the only bases we offer that are intended specifically for fence applications though they are not load rated and it would be up to the Designer to evaluate the suitability of the base for the specific application. Thank you!

Can this be used as the post base for free standing pergola?

This question is from 4 in. x 4 in. 12-Gauge Standoff Column Base with SDS Screws
Asked by

The description say "Not recommended for non top support application". Does that mean that only structure attached to the house can use this hardware, or it's safe to use it for free standing trellis/pergola in Northern California as well?

Non top-supported structures such as unbraced carports, railings, fences, arbors etc. need to resist lateral loads such as wind, earthquake, climbing kids, people leaning, etc. at the top. Those lateral loads at the top of post translate to significant moment loads at the bottom. We do not have a base or other connector designed/rated to resist these moment loads. If the free standing pergola is braced against this rotation, then the bases would be an option. It would be up to the Designer to specify the appropriate connector based on framing layout, demand loads, local building codes, etc.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by When you need anchors, Simpson is it. Not much to say. Simpson pretty much has the market cornered on these things. The quality is really high, the varieties are endless and the price is high. April 5, 2012
