Base for wooden columns, posts

From: Simpson Strong-Tie

Simpson Strong-Tie’s MPBZ moment post base provides moment resistance for wooden columns or posts, reducing the need for knee bracing and leaving greater design possibilities for outdoor structures. Featuring an overlapping sleeve design that encapsulates the post to keep it from rotating around its base when lateral loads are applied from above, 4×4 and 6×6 post sizes are available off-the-shelf. Its single-piece design facilitates easy installation, and indicators and internal tabs identify required concrete embedment depth. A ZMAX coating provides corrosion resistance for exterior and preservative-treated lumber applications.
