The OCB ornamental column base attaches a column so that the bottom of the base plate is flush with the concrete. The OCB features a powder-coated black paint for a more finished look and is from the Simpson Strong-Tie® Rustic Collection of its Decorative Hardware group.
Allowable loads have been increased 60% for wind or earthquake loading with no further increase allowed; reduce where
other loads govern.
Minimum side cover for full loads is 3" for CB's.
Install with bottom of base 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).
