PBS44A Standoff Post Base
PBS44A Standoff Post Base

The PBS post base provides a connection between a post (or column) for decks, patio covers and other top-supported structures. By featuring a 1" standoff height, it reduces the potential for decay at post and column ends.

Key Features:

Provides a 1" standoff between post and concrete that meets code requirements

Available with standard or ZMAX galvanization, which offers extra corrosion resistance for outdoor or treated-wood applications

Material:

See table

Finish:

Galvanized (G90)

Installation:

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). Embed into wet concrete up to the bottom of the 1" standoff base plate. A 2" minimum side cover is required to obtain the full load. Holes in the bottom of the straps allow for free concrete flow.
