Outdoor Accents post bases secure the post or column to concrete and are perfect for outdoor projects, such as pergolas, patio covers and other top-supported structures. These post bases feature a clean, simple design and provide ZMAX® galvanization with black powder coat for extra corrosion resistance. The post base includes a 1" standoff from the concrete to help avoid post-end rot from moisture.

Uplift loads have been increased for wind or earthquake loading with no further increase allowed. Reduce where other loads govern.
Downloads may not be increased for short-term loading.
Specifier is to design concrete and anchorage for uplift loads.
Downloads shall be reduced where limited by capacity of the post.
All column fasteners are Outdoor Accents SDWS22312DBB structural wood screws inserted through an STN22 washer. Fasteners sold separately.
Column bases do not provide adequate resistance to prevent members from rotating about the base and therefore are not recommended for installations that lack top support (such as fences or unbraced carports).
