Features

Built to last, the surface of the PBWS is protected using our ZPRO coating for improved resistance to corrosion compared with conventionally coated galvanised steel. This makes the PBWS a good choice for a wide variety of outdoor projects including pergolas, decking, car ports, fencing and sheds.

Optional hole patterns mean it can be fastened to the timber post using either 4 x CSA connector screws or 2 x SSH Hex Head screws, no pre-drilling is required.

Reduced Environmental Impact

PBWS offers the same load-rated capacity as standard post bases, yet due to it's unique folded build, requires up to half as much steel material to produce, making it better for the environment and easier to handle.

Extend the life of outdoor structures

Our innovative ZPRO coating provides additional corrosion resistance for structural steel connections typically used in outdoor settings such as car ports and gardens. It provides the same protection against the elements as a hot dip galvanised coating (corrosion category C3 EN ISO 12944) however ZPRO has a much neater, shinier finish.

Economical too, ZPRO bridges the gap between standard glavanised steel and the considerably more expensive stainless steel material.
