For post bases that do not attach to all four sides of the post, the post may be wider than the base and overhang the base in one direction as long as the bearing area provided by the base is sufficient for the post. Note: the APBVB44R is sized for a rough (true to size) 4x6. If you're looking for a base for nominal lumber (i.e 4x = 3 1/2" actual), please see the ABP44. Thank you!
The APVB44R requires a 5/8" diameter *anchor bolt to connect the base to the concrete. The post connects to the base with a quantity of 4 - Outdoor Accents SDWS22312DBB structural wood screws inserted through an STN22 washer. *it is up to the Designer/Engineer of Record to specify the anchor bolt type, length and embedment. Thank you!
This base is only tested/rated for installation on concrete. Thank you!
