The PBV is designed to make a hidden connection between viga posts and concrete. This circular, hidden standoff post base attaches to concrete with threaded rod and epoxy to the bottom of the viga post with Strong-Drive® SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screws for a secure connection. The PBV comes in two different sizes to support a variety of projects.
Round shape to match viga-style posts
Black powder-coated finish
1" standoff to help prevent rot at the end of the post
Black powder coat or galvanized
Drill a 3/4"-diameter hole, 10" into the center of the post.
Clean out sawdust. Fill hole halfway with Simpson Strong-Tie® SET-3G™ epoxy anchoring adhesive.
Insert all-thread rod while twisting the rod, and allow the epoxy to set and cure.
Secure standoff to post using four Strong-Drive SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screws (sold separately).
Drill a 3/4"-diameter hole per anchor design a min. 4 3/4" from the edge.
Clean out dust. Fill hole halfway with Simpson Strong-Tie SET-3G epoxy anchoring adhesive. Insert post subassembly into hole, and allow the 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 black powder coat, order PBV6PC or PBV10PC. For galvanized coating, order PBV6 or PBV10.
