Simpson Strong Tie MPBZ Moment Post Base

The patent-pending MPBZ is specifically designed to provide moment resistance for columns or posts. An innovative overlapping sleeve design encapsulates the post, helping to resist rotation around its base. It is available for 4×4, 6×6 and 8×8 posts. The MPBZ is ideal for outdoor structures, such as carports, fences and decks. Built-in standoff tabs provide the required 1″ standoff to resist decay of the post while eliminating multiple parts and assembly. Additionally, the MPBZ is available in ZMAX® as the standard finish to meet exposure conditions in many environments.
