Simpson BC40SS 4x Post Half Base - Stainless Steel

SKU: BC40SS
$26.99

The Simpson Strong-Tie BC series offers dual purpose post cap/base for light cap or base connections. The BC40SS post base is approved to be installed with the specified nails or Strong-Drive SD connector screws. The Strong-Tie BC40SS post half base's are made of 316L stainless steel to provide maximum corrosion resistance in the harshest of climates. Stainless steel fasteners are required to install this hanger.


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
