Painted connectors have a low level of corrosion protection (the HDG and Z-MAX connectors have a medium level of protection). Please visit the corrosion section of our website for recommended finishes based on your condition (i.e. location, environment, type of wood used, etc.). The new Outdoor Accents products we offer have Z-MAX galvanization over a black powder coat for extra corrosion resistance. Thank you!
The CB66PC has a rated uplift capacity of 4,200 lbs. (the download would be limited to the capacity of the post). It would be up to the Designer/Engineer of Record to calculate the demand load for the specific application and determine if the connector is adequate. Thank you!
it is meant for finished 6x6 dimensions, not rough.
