How far from the edge of the concrete slab do you recommend being?

Asked by VacJoh81 September 3, 2020

Answer

The Designer is responsible for concrete design and specifying the anchor bolt type, length and embedment (which would affect how far from the edge it is to be installed). Thank you!

Can these be used to attach a pergola to an existing deck?

Asked by Mike July 20, 2020
1
Answer

It is 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., but if it is an existing concrete deck, the APVB66 may be an option. Thank you!

Can I use this at the top of the post to cradle the carrying beam?

Asked by woodentoy July 20, 2020
1
Answer

We can only support the installation of our products as designed/tested; in the case of the APVB66 that would be anchored to concrete carrying a 6x6 wood post. For beam to post connections, the APVL/APVT straps may be an option. Thank you!

my post measures 5.25 x 5.5 some spacers or washers? Can I make work?

Asked by Rjazz85 July 3, 2020

Answers

Just set the 5.5 width between the upright portion and you'll have no problems. My posts are 6x6 nominal; (5.5 x 5.5 actual) and overhang by about 1/4 inch on each side anyway.

What size (length & depth) concrete anchor is required?

Asked by Joe April 16, 2020
1
Answer

It would be up to the Designer/Engineer of Record to specify the anchor bolt type, length and embedment as there are several factors to consider (cast-in-place or retrofit, concrete strength, location, local building codes, etc.). Thank you!

These Power-Coated post bases are beautiful, strong, and easy to install. With the Simpson Strong-Tie hex washer and timber screws, they make installing the 6x6 posts easy as well. And important here, as with other items I ordered from Home Depot for this pergola project, they got here even sooner than promised! We couldn't be happier.
