Simpson ABA66Z Adjustable Post Bottom/Base 6x6 Z Max

The AB is an adjustable post base which offers moisture protection and finished hardware appearance.

These post bases feature 1" standoff height above concrete floors, code-required when supporting permanent structures that are exposed to the weather or water splash, or in basements. They reduce the potential for decay at post and column ends.

Material: AB – 12 gauge plates;16 gauge base cover;  all others – see table.

Finish: Galvanized. Some products available in ZMAX coating; see Corrosion Information.

Installation:

  • Use all specified fasteners. See General Notes.
  • 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).
  • AB supplied as shown; position the post, secure the easy access nut over the supplied washer, place the standoff base, then bend up the fourth side and nail all sides.
  • AB, ABA, ABE and ABU - for pre-pour installed anchors. For epoxy or mechanical anchors, select and install according to anchor manufacturer's recommendations; anchor diameter shown in table.
  • Products require washers between the nut and the base. Washers are supplied with all products except ABA’s which require a standard cut washer.
  • Refer to Anchor Designer Software™ for ACI 318 for anchoring solutions.
These products are available with additional corrosion protection. Additional products on this page may also be available with this option, check with Simpson Strong-Tiefor details.
These models are approved for installation with the Strong-Drive SD Structural-Connector screw.
See the load values.

Table
  1. Uplift loads have been increased for wind or earthquake with no further increase allowed; reduce where other loads govern.
  2. Downloads may not be increased for short-term loading.
  3. Specifier to design concrete for shear capacity.
  4. ABU products may be installed with either bolts OR nails (not both) to achieve table loads. ABU88 and ABU88R may be installed with 8-SDS 1/4"x3" wood screws (sold separately) for the same table load.
  5. For AB bases, higher download can be achieved by solidly packing grout under 1" standoff plate before installation. Base download on column, grout, or concrete according to the code.
  6. HB dimension is the distance from the bottom of the post up to the first bolt hole.
  7. Structural composite lumber columns have sides that show either the wide face or the edges of the lumber strands/veneers. For SCL columns, the fasteners for these products should always be installed in the wide face.
  8. NAILS: 16d = 0.162" dia. x 3 1/2" long, 10d = 0.148" dia. x 3" long. See other nail sizes and information.
