The AB series of retrofit adjustable post bases provide a 1" standoff for the post, are slotted for adjustability and can be installed with nails, Strong-Drive® SD Connector screws or bolts (ABU). Depending on the application needs, these adjustable standoff post bases are designed for versatility, cost effectiveness and maximum uplift performance.

Key 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

Material

  • Varies (see table)

Finish

  • ZMAX® and some in stainless steel; see Corrosion Information

Installation

  • Use all specified fasteners; see General Notes.
  • See our Anchoring and Fastening Systems for Concrete and Masonry catalog for retrofit anchor options.
  • 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, cut washer(s) or load transfer plate(s) and nut(s) on the anchor bolt(s). Make any necessary adjustments to post placement and tighten the nut securely on the anchor bolt.
