ECB66HDG Elevated Column Base
ECB66HDG Elevated Column Base

The ECB elevated column base for hollow columns or solid-sawn posts makes it easy to install waterproofing material on stacked balconies in multi-family buildings. It’s the only post base available off the shelf that features a 2” standoff, providing enough room for moisture barrier material and a thin finish surface while still allowing for the 1” code-required standoff to prevent post decay. There are two model sizes for 6x6 and 8x8 posts.

Key Features

2” elevated base accommodates moisture barrier and surface material while still providing 1” standoff

Can be used with hollow columns or solid sawn posts

Flexible anchorage options – 4 corner holes (screw down to wood) or 1 center hole (anchor to concrete)

Finish: HDG Hot Dip Galvanized


Use all specified fasteners; see General Notes

If using the single-anchor option (center hole), (2) 1/2" standard cut washers are required between the 1/2" anchor bolt or nut and the post base

If using the four-anchor option (corner holes), install anchors into slotted holes at slight angle, as close to vertical as post base geometry will allow

Concrete anchor options include Titen HD®, Stainless-Steel Titen HD, SET-3G™, or Titen Turbo™; wood anchor options include Strong-Drive® SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screw

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)
