Can I use these to support a 14 foot diameter grain bin gazebo?

Asked by Dan August 18, 2020

Answer

We can direct you to the allowable load tables for the APVB44 (https://www.strongtie.com/avantcollection_outdooraccents/apvb_base/p/apvb#LoadTables), but it would be up to the Designer/Engineer of Record to specify the appropriate connector for the specific application based on framing layout, demand loads, local building codes, etc. Thank you!

What hardware do you use with this?

Answer

The column fasteners for the APVB44 are Outdoor Accents SDWS22312DBB structural wood screws inserted through an STN22 washer. The APBV44 requires a 5/8" diameter anchor; the anchor bolt type, length and embedment is specified by the Designer/Engineer of Record. The column fastners and anchor bolt are sold separately. Thank you!

Can you attach the bottom to a flat wood surface then attach to the sides of post?

Answer

We can only support our products used as designed/tested, The APBV44 is only rated for attachment of a vertical post anchored to concrete. Thank you!

The product is designed to put two bolts through the holes with a nut and washer on the other end. Unfortunately the holes were not drilled in-line, as the holes on one side were 3/8 of an inch off from the other side. Had to elongate them with a round file. Being a retired toolmaker I had plenty of tools around to do this but not everyone does !!

Used these to surface mount my pool fence. Has a slotted mount to allow for minor errors in measurement/drilling. Supports a 4x4 well, better than most galvanized 4x4 post bases.
