Simpson ABW46Z 4x6 Adjustable Post Base - Zmax Finish

SKU: ABW46Z
$21.49

The Strong-Tie ABW series of adjustable post bases provide a 1" standoff for the post and are slotted for adjustability. The ABW46Z adjustable post base is approved to be installed with the specified nails or with Strong-Drive SD connector screws. The Strong-Tie ABW46Z post base features a G185 ZMAX galvanized finish for added corrosion resistance and requires the use of hot-dip galvanized fasteners which meet the specifications of ASTM A153.


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 anchor bolt. Loosely tighten the nut.

ABW
  • Place the standoff base and then the post in the ABW and fasten on three vertical sides, using nails or Strong-Drive® SD Connector screws.
  • Make any necessary adjustments to post placement and tighten the nut securely on the anchor bolt.
  • Bend up the fourth side of the ABW and fasten using the correct fasteners.

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