Questions & Answers

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

I will have 8 treated 4x4's that are 8 foot tall. I will have concrete footings that are 8 inch round and 5 foot deep.
Asked by: Dan
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?

What hardware do you use with this?
Asked by: jacob
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!
