This is galvanized, but how well does it resist corrosion when used with deck lumber pressure tre...

Asked by Tim August 22, 2020
1
Answer

The CB44HDG is the CB44 with the hot-dip galvanized finish, which provides a medium level of corrosion protection. The CB44 is not available in Z-MAX (which also provides a medium level of corrosion protection), but is available in stainless steel - CB44SS (stainless steel provides a high level of corrosion protection). Please see the Corrosion section of our website to determine the recommended finish based on your condition: https://www.strongtie.com/solutions/corrosion. Thank you!

Can the part above ground be painted?

Asked by Jean April 18, 2020

Answer

While we do not have any restrictions against painting our products, we do not have any information/guidelines to provide regarding painting galvanized steel as this is not our area of expertise. You may wish to check further with a paint manufacturer or the American Galvanizers Association (www.galvanizeit.org) for information on painting galvanized steel. Thank you!

What is the difference between CB 4 in. x 6 in. Galvanized Column Base and the Hot-Dip Galvaniz...

Asked by GW September 10, 2017
1
Answer

The steel used to manufacture the CB46 is hot-dipped prior to fabrication. This standard (G90) zinc-galvanized coating contains 0.90 oz. of zinc per square foot of surface area (total both sides) and provides a low level of corrosion protection. The CB46HDG is hot-dip galvanized after fabrication. The minimum average coating weight on the "HDG" products is 2.0 oz./ft2 (per ASTM A123 total both sides) and provides a medium level of corrosion protection. Please visit our website for information on our coatings, to determine what finish is recommended for your condition, and for complete corrosion information. Thank you!

Asked by flint January 1, 2017

Answer

The CB44HDG is not recommend for non-top supported installations. 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. The E-Z Base may be an option (please see model FPBB44), but this is not a load rated product. It would be up to the Designer/Engineer of Record to evaluate for the specific fence application. Thank you!

How do I accomplish a 1" standoff with this base?

Asked by Jim November 6, 2015
1
Answer

This base does not provide a 1" standoff. For a 1" standoff, please see the CBS66 (bolted version) or CBSQ66 (screw version); both available with the HDG finish (add HDG to model number). Thank you!

this product is inserted into the wet cement? (Simpson Strong-tie Anchor CB44hdg)

Asked by Barry August 6, 2011

Answer

We recommend setting the base first, then pouring and vibrating the concrete around it to prevent voids (air pockets) in the concrete.

These post bases are made from very heavy gauge steel and hot-dip galvanized. Once anchored in concrete they provide an exceptionally stable base for 6x6 pressure-treated posts (note: so-called 6x6 lumber has a true measurement of 5.5" x 5.5" +/-). These brackets are really massive, over 7 lbs each. They are much sturdier than the typical 12-gauge steel brackets They are anchored about 10" deep into the concrete, then attached to the upright post using two 5/8" x 8" HDG bolts. Once properly anchored, that post is not going anywhere! I would definitely recommend this product to a friend.
