BP/LBP Bearing Plates
This product's information may differ depending on the category of use. You are currently viewing details related to Bearing Plates. You can also view product information related to the category: Concrete Connectors for Cold-Formed Steel Construction
Bearing plates give greater bearing surface than standard-cut washers, and help distribute the load at these critical connections.
The BP1/2-3 and BP5/8-3 are 3" x 3" bearing plates that meet the latest requirements of the IRC and IBC. These plate washers are available uncoated or with a hot-dip galvanized (HDG) coating.
The BPS and LBPS are bearing plates that offer increased flexibility while meeting the latest requirements of the code for 2x4 and 2x6 walls. The slotted hole allows for adjustability to account for bolts that are not in the middle of the sill plate.
The BP5/8SKT uses 1/4" x 1 1/2" Strong-Drive® SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screws to provide lateral resistance when 5/8" diameter sill holes are overdrilled (screws are provided). The shear capacity of the connection and the sill/anchor bolt shall be determined by the Designer for each installation.
- See table
- LBP, LBPS — galvanized; BP7/8-2, BP5/8S — zinc-plated; BPS, BP — none. BPs and BPSs may be ordered HDG; LBP and LBPS products may be ordered ZMAX®; contact Simpson Strong-Tie. See Corrosion Information.
- See General Notes
- BP/BPS — For shearwall applications, position edge of plate washer within 1/2" of sheathed edge of sill plate
- BPS-6 plate washers are sized to accommodate the 1/2" from the sheathed edge in single- and double-sheathed 2x6 walls
- BPS slotted bearing plate does not require an additional cut washer when used with Titen HD® Heavy-Duty screw anchors
