Simpson ABU66Z 6x6 Post Base - Zmax Finish

SKU: ABU66Z
$36.49

The Strong-Tie ABU66Z 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:

  • A slotted hole for the concrete anchor allows for adjustment so you can achieve a perfect post alignment.
  • The ABU66Z 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.
  • The G185 ZMAX ® galvanized finish provides a level of corrosion resistance that is acceptable for use with treated lumber and normal outdoor use. If you’re installing in a high corrosive environment, i.e. near saltwater or where exposure to chemicals may occur, it’s recommended that you use a stainless steel base like the ABU66SS Stainless Post base.

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” concrete anchor, (12) - 16d x 3-1/2” Common Nails or (2) – ½” 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
