The BP is designed to provide a greater bearing surface than standard cut-washers and help distribute the load at critical connections. This bearing plate works by transferring concentrated compressive forces between two structural elements. The BP is available with a hot-dip galvanized (HDG) coating to protect the plate from corrosion when exposed to the elements or certain types of treated lumber.

Key Features

  • Replaces standard cut-washers while providing a greater bearing surface
  • Sized for most common anchor bolt sizes: 3/8", 1/2", 5/8", 3/4", 7/8" and 1"
  • May be ordered HDG for higher corrosion resistance

Material

  • See table

Finish

  • See table; see Corrosion Information. BPs also available in black powder coat; add PC to model number (e.g., BP 1/2PC).

Installation

  • See General Notes.
  • For shearwall applications, position edge of plate washer within 1/2" of sheathed edge of 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.
  • No additional standard cut-washer required.
  • Tighten each anchor bolt with a nut and BP.
