Simpson BC6 6x Post Cap - G90 Galvanized

SKU: BC6

$19.42

The Simpson Strong-Tie BC series offers dual purpose post cap/base for light cap or base connections. The BC6 post base is approved to be installed with the specified nails or Strong-Drive SD connector screws. The Strong-Tie BC6 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
