CPS/PBV Standoff Bases
The CPS is a composite plastic standoff designed for increased concrete surface area. The PBV is a hidden standoff post base. Two different sizes fit a variety of posts shapes.
- CPS — engineered composite plastic; PBV — 14-gauge galvanized steel
- PBV — textured powder-coated flat black paint or galvanized
- Drill a 3/4" diameter hole, 10" into the center of the post.
- Clean out dust. Fill hole halfway with Simpson Strong-Tie® SET epoxy anchoring adhesive.
- Insert all-thread rod and allow epoxy to set and cure.
- Secure standoff to post using four 10d nails except PBV which uses four Simpson Strong-Tie® Strong-Drive® SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screws.
- Drill a 3/4" diameter hole per anchor design (see table footnote 2).
- Clean out dust. Fill hole halfway with Simpson Strong-Tie SET epoxy anchoring adhesive. Insert post subassembly into hole and allow epoxy to set and cure.
- 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).
- For powder-coated flat black, order PBV6PC or PBV10P
- For galvanized coating, order PBV6 or PBV10
- For kit containing Simpson Strong-Tie Strong-Drive SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screws, RFB bolt, SET epoxy anchoring adhesive, and powder-coated PBV, order PBV6KT or PBV10KT
- Allowable uplift load capacities are for solid sawn posts with specific gravity of 0.36 minimum except the PBV, which is based on round "Viga" (Ponderosa Pine) wood posts.
- All allowable uplift loads are based on a lowest ultimate load from testing divided by a safety factor of 4. Concrete anchorage to be designed by others, refer to Simpson Strong-Tie® Anchoring and Fastening Systems for Concrete and Masonry catalog (form C-A-2016). Uplift loads shall not exceed those shown in the table.
- Download capacities are calculated based on the standoff bearing area and a concrete strength of 2,500 psi except the PBV which is based on the wood bearing strength (700 psi for Ponderosa Pine).
- Allowable loads may not be increased for short-term loading.
- NAILS: 10d = 0.148" dia. x 3" long. See other nail sizes and information.
