The PL is designed to help distribute the load at critical connections within the Strong-Rod® system. This bearing plate works by transferring incremental compressive forces from wood framing members into the threaded rod. By spreading the loads, the PL helps to minimize the effects of wood crushing.

Key Features

  • Key component in transferring loads from the post and top plates to the rods
  • Compatible with ATUD/TUD take-up device series

Material

  • ASTM A36

Finish

  • Uncoated

Installation

  • See General Notes
  • The PL bearing plate resting on the wood sole plate should first be placed over the threaded rod
  • Next place the ATUD or TUD take-up device on top of the PL plate, ensuring the activation pin is pointed up
  • Secure the assembly in place with a BP bearing plate and nut on top of the take-up device

  1. Secure BP and PL bearing plates to framing with washer and ATS-N_nut over ATUD or TUD.
  2. Bearing plate load capacity is based on the steel plate bearing on the wood sole plate perpendicular to the grain and steel plate bending in cantilever action.
  3. Bearing plate loads are based on a hole through the wood plate below that is 1/4" larger in diameter than the rod. Reduce allowable load per code for larger holes.
