Balcony Post base dessign

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I have HSS2x2x1/8"  balcony post, 3 feet high. Base plate size is 5"x5".
Typical calcs would result in 5/8" base plate thickness based on 0.2k 
lateral load, 0.6kf moment. It seems excessive for a balcony post ?
Your thoughts on design ideas of plate ?
