PBS46 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.
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
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.
