PB44Z Post Base
The PB post base provides a connection between a post (or column) for decks, patio covers and other top-supported structures. Available with standard or ZMAX galvanization, which offers extra corrosion resistance for outdoor or treated-wood applications.
Use all specified fasteners; see General Notes.
Install either nails or bolts.
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).
Holes are provided for installation with either 0.162" x 3 1/2" nails or 1/2" bolts for PB66 and PB66R; all other models use 0.162" x 3 1/2" nails only. A 2" minimum sidecover is required to obtain the full load.
