The ABU44Z requires a 5/8" diameter anchor. The anchor bolt type, length and embedment must be specified by the designer for the specific application. For a cast-in-place anchor, the SSTB may be an option. Thank you!
The ABU base is not intended for fence/gate applications. Except for the MPBZ moment post base, post bases do not provide adequate resistance to prevent members from rotating about the base and are therefore not recommended for non-top-supported installations (such as fences or unbraced carports). Thank you!
I would suggest you give simpson Strong tie a call.They would be able to give you the best answer. (800) 999-5099
Hi Workder, thank you for your inquiry. Please find the dimensions of this item below: Nominal Post Size (in.) 4x4 Product Depth (in.) 3.5 Product Height (in.) 5.75 Product Width (in.) 4 We appreciate your business and look forward to serving you in the future. Thank you for shopping Home Depot!
They are not adjustable vertically. Typically you would do that by adjusting the exact height of the post itself. They are only adjustable in the horizontal plane
It is for a 4x4 which is 3.5 inches. Two 2x10s are 3 inches. So if you add a piece of 1/2 inch pressure treated plywood it will work but without a post it will be tough to get the right height.
Structural Engineer here, this likely won't work and it's definitely not designed to resist the moment due to the punching bag. I'm not sure why the manufacturer answered saying they don't make a product for your use, because they do. Try this: Simpson FPBB44, it has four anchors and can take out the overturning from the punching bag (depending on how hard you hit it).
We can only support the installation as designed/tested and is on a level surface. Also, we cannot support the field modification (bending) of our products (except where specifically noted in our catalog). Thank you!
Not this model, but the ABU46Z can be used for beams. Please see the ABU page on our website for complete information - scroll down to "Allowable Loads - Beam Installation". Thank you!
If you check with your county permits office unless you live in a state that never freezes you need to pour footers for your posts that are below the frost line which a slab is not. The slab is also probably not thick enough to support the weight.
