  • Use all specified fasteners. See General Notes.
  • For full loads, minimum side cover required is 3″ for CB, 2″ for LCB.

  • 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).
