Simpson ABU66SS 6x6 Stainless Steel Adjustable Post Base

SKU: ABU66SS
$151.99

The Strong-Tie ABU66SS stainless steel 6x6 post base is perfect for your next deck, patio or pergola build/remodel. Designed for securing your nominal 6x6 posts to a concrete slab or footing, the ABU series provides the best uplift performance of all the AB series post bases (ABA,ABU,ABW).
Features:

  • The 316L stainless steel provides exceptional corrosion resistance. It’s acceptable for use near saltwater, livestock or other harsh conditions where exposure to chemicals may occur. If any of these conditions apply, you need the stainless version of the ABU base for your project. If you’re building in a regular outdoor environment that isn’t so harsh, check out our ABU66Z 6x6 post base w/ZMAX coating.
  • A slotted hole for the concrete anchor allows for adjustment so you can achieve a perfect post alignment.
  • The ABU66SS provides a 1” standoff to get your 6x6 post 1” off the ground. Not only will your project be code compliant, but it will keep your post end from sitting in standing water to prevent unwanted rotting and damage.

Installation:
  • Place the base, load transfer plate and nut on the anchor bolt. Loosely tighten the nut.
  • Place the standoff base and then the post in the ABU.
  • Fasten using Nails or Bolts - Use only the specified fasteners below.
  • > This 6x6 post base requires the following fasteners for installation: (1) – 5/8” 316 stainless steel concrete anchor, (12) - 16d x 3-1/2” 316 Stainless Steel Nails or (2) – ½” 316 Stainless Steel Machine Bolts (Use nails OR bolts. DO NOT install nails and bolts together!!!)
  • 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).

  • NOTE: The correct fasteners installed in the correct position must be used to achieve published load values
