Simpson ABU88HDG 8x8 Adjustable Post Base - Hot Dip Galvanized

SKU: ABU88HDG
$106.49

The Strong-Tie ABU series of adjustable post bases provide a 1" standoff for the post and are slotted for adjustability. The ABU88HDG adjustable post base is approved to be installed with the specified nails, Strong-Drive SD connector screws or specified machine bolts. The Strong-Tie ABU88HDG post base features a hot-dip galvanized coating. The minimum average coating weight is 2.0 oz./ft2 (per ASTM A123 total both sides). This product requires hot-dip galvanized fasteners (fasteners which meet the specifications of ASTM A153). Anchor bolts are hot-dip galvanized per ASTM F2329.


Features:
  • The slot in the base enables flexible positioning around the anchor bolt, making precise post placement easier
  • The 1" standoff helps prevent rot at the end of the post and meets code requirements for structural posts installed in basements or exposed to weather or water splash

Installation:
  • Use all specified fasteners.
  • 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).
  • Place the base, load transfer plate and nut on the an the anchor bolt. Loosely tighten the nut.

ABU
  • Place the standoff base and then the post in the ABU.
  • Fasten using nails or Strong-Drive SD structural connector screws or bolts (ABU88, ABU1010 – SDS optional).

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