LCB Column Base

LCB

Concrete Connectors for Cold-Formed Steel Construction

This product's information may differ depending on the category of use. You are currently viewing details related to Concrete Connectors for Cold-Formed Steel Construction. You can also view product information related to the category: Non-Standoff Column Bases

LCB column bases use screws, which allows for fast installation, reduced reveal and high capacity, while maintaining the net section of the column.

Material

  • Strap — 12 ga. (97 mil) x 2; base — 16 ga. (54 mil)

Finish

  • Galvanized

Installation

  • Use all specified fasteners; see General Notes
  • For full loads, minimum side cover required is 2" for LCB
  • Install all models with bottom of base plate flush with concrete
  • 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)

Options

  • LCB is available in rough sizes. Consult Simpson Strong-Tie for bolt sizes and allowable loads.
