Questions & Answers

Will this work for a 4x6 post?

Asked by Eric May 4, 2020
1
Answer

A 4x6 post can be used, but it will be limited to the catalog allowable download for the 4x4 base since the standoff will only have a contact area for a 4x4 post. The post should be centered in the base, leaving even overhang. Thank you!

What size of anchor bolt is needed?

Asked by Carmen April 3, 2020

Answer

The APB88R requires 2 - 5/8" diameter anchors. It is up to the Designer/Engineer of Record to specify the anchor bolt type, length and embedment. Feel free to contact our Engineering Support Department if further assistance is needed - 800/999-5099. Thank you!

Answers

After I purchased these, I found that there are smaller screw holes that I used with the Simpson SD screws to secure these post bases. I'd recommend a 2 1/2" or larger structural screw. Worked great though and the cover plate conceals everything.

We can direct you to the allowable loads for our connectors (found on our website or in the catalog), but cannot say if the product is adequate or how many would be needed. It is up to the Designer/ Engineer of Record to specify the appropriate products based on framing layout, demand loads, local building codes, etc. Thank you!

Asked by DIYremodeler March 19, 2018
1
Answer

Post bases do not provide adequate resistance to prevent members from rotating about the base and therefore are not recommended for non-top-supported installations (such as railings, fences or unbraced carports). Thank you!

The APB66R requires a 5/8" diameter anchor, but it is up to the specifier to design the concrete for uplift capacity and to specify the anchor bolt type, length and embedment. Thank you!
