The ABW is an adjustable retrofit post base that provides a clean look, a 1" standoff and increased capacity to resist uplift loads. The slot in the ABW allows flexible positioning around the anchor bolt, making precise post placement easier. The 1" standoff helps prevent rot at the end of the post and meets code requirements for structural posts that are installed in basements or exposed to weather or water splash. Installs with nails or Strong-Drive SD structural-connector screws. Replaces AB and ABE December 2012.
