ABU44Z Adjustable Post Base
The AB series of retrofit adjustable post bases provide a 1" standoff for the post, are slotted for adjustability and can be installed with nails, Strong-Drive® SD Connector screws or bolts (ABU). Depending on the application needs, these adjustable standoff post bases are designed for versatility, cost-effectiveness and maximum uplift performance.
The slot in the base enables flexible positioning around the anchor bolt, making precise post placement easier
The 1" standoff helps prevent rot at the end of the post and meets code requirements for structural posts installed in basements or exposed to weather or water splash
Varies (see model table)
All galvanized, most offered in ZMAX® coating. See Corrosion Information.
Use all specified fasteners. See General Notes.
See our Anchoring and Fastening Systems for Concrete and Masonry catalog for retrofit anchor options or reference technical bulletin Anchoring Solutions for Simpson Strong-Tie® Connectors in Wind and Low-Seismic Regions (T-ANCHORSPEC).
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 fences or unbraced carports).
Place the base, load transfer plate and nut on the anchor bolt. Loosely tighten the nut.
Some products may be installed with the Strong-Drive® SD Connector screw. See model table.
