The CBQGT uses Simpson Strong-Tie® Strong-Drive® SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screws, which allow for fast installation, reduced reveal, high capacity and provide a greater net section area of the column compared to bolts.
Simpson Strong-Tie® gray paint, available in HDG
Use all specified fasteners; see General Notes.
Install 1/4" x 2" Strong-Drive SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screws, which are provided with the column base. (Lag screws will not achieve the same load.)
Minimum 3" side cover on concrete is required.
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).
Other sizes available. Check with Simpson Strong‐Tie for details.
