Simpson BC40R Rough Cut 4x Post Half Base - G90 Galvanized

SKU: BC40R
$13.79

The Simpson Strong-Tie BC series offers dual purpose post cap/base for light cap or base connections. The BC40R post base is designed to be used with rough cut lumber and is approved to be installed with the specified nails or Strong-Drive SD connector screws. The Strong-Tie BC40R post base features a G90 galvanized finish for added corrosion resistance and requires the use of hot-dip galvanized fasteners which meet the specifications of ASTM A153.


Installation:
  • Use all specified fasteners.
  • Do not install bolts into pilot holes
  • BC: install with 16d commons or 16dx2 1/2" joist hanger nails.
  • 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).
  • To tie multiple 2x members together, the Designer must determine the fasteners required to join members to act as one unit without splitting the wood.

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