The Simpson Strong-Tie ABW7-7Z for 7-1/8" x 7-1/8" glulam posts 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. Additionally the ZMax® coating provides additional protection from exposure to the elements.
The ABW7-7Z allows you to set the post and then adjust it to the exact position you desire before tightening the anchors. However, ABW7-7Z post bases do not provide enough strength to stop the post from twisting so they should only be used in top supported situations.

ZMax® Coating is a thicker coating (galvanized per ASTM A653 with a G185 coating) than the standard hot-dip galvanized coating (galvanized per ASTM A653 with a G90 coating). This thicker coating is available on select Simpson Strong-Tie connectors. Due to this increased galvanized thickness these connectors would be expected to have a longer service life than standard galvanized connectors.
