Q:What is proper orientation for install. I would like to take advantage of the adjustable base by running flanges parallel to beam so I can move base closer or farther from house rather than lateral adjustment

    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi Rocco, this is Colin from Simpson Strong-Tie. The ABU88Z requires (2) 5/8" diameter anchors. The anchorage type and embedment depth/length would need to be determined by a design professional.

      Answer This Question

      A:  Hey Jar1, this is Ricardo here with Simpson. When you say the compression strength I am assuming you are talking about the download capacity. This post base is rated for 22,405lbs.in download, however, the concrete compression and anchorage are up to the one designing the structure to determine. If you have any questions, please contact us at (800)999-5099.

          Great product but a bit highly priced.
          Great product, a little high in price but structurally the best support for your deck beams or post and beam setup.

          These are not TRUE 8X8 in. Actually 7.5x7.5 in. I needed these for 8x8 cedar posts for my back porch. The cedar posts are true 8x8 inches, therefore I had to do some creative metal bending. This was OK because I will be covering the lower part of the post with stone veneer. The metal base will not be seen for my project.

          Great product, but way over priced. I'll be looking for something close to the same thing, but $100 cheaper.

            The only problem was the 8" x 8" posts that were used were true 8" x 8" post from a treated lumber yard that the post was not a true 8" x 8". I made it work

            Response from Simpson Strong-TieApr 15, 2022
            Hello Home Depot Customer, this is Colin from Simpson Strong-Tie. It seems we look at the term nominal in different ways. Simpson refers to Nominal Lumber that is machined and surfaced four sides (S4S). So a nominal 8x8 post measures 7-1/2" x 7-1/2". The ABU88Z will fit a nominal 8x8 post. A rough sawn 8x8 post that is not S4S typically measures a net 8" x 8" and an ABU88RZ would fit this post. I am sorry for any confusion this may have caused. If you have any further questions please call us at 800-999-5099. We look forward to hearing from you.​ SimpsonStrongTie
