exposed base plates / hillside construction

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
i have a question regarding typical specification for base plates that are 
exposed to the elements and base plaes in hillside construction.

there is a provision in the la city code that requires galvanized base plates 
and anchor bolts in hillside construction.  (section 1666.10.4)  this seems 
to be a sound requirements as the plates are horizontal surface and collect 
water, they may not be maintained. i have seen several installations where severe 
corrosion has compromisred integrity.
however, is there a more eceonomical or easier way of achieving the same 
result?  are there epoxy coated paints / primers that provide equivalent 
protection, but ease fabrication?

thanks in advance - paul franceschi
