ECCU End Column Cap with Uplift

ECCU

On This Page

The ECCU is designed for column-beam connections in end-of-beam applications requiring uplift values. The seat of the column cap provides additional surface area for bearing that extends beyond one side of the column. The ECCU helps to distribute the load from the beam and provide support for the connection.

Key Features

  • Certified welds for confidence in strength and loading
  • Uplift loads increased for earthquake or wind loading
  • Bolt spacing that meets NDS code requirements to ensure optimal performance
  • Diamond holes to provide temporary fastening

Material

  • ECCU 5/8, ECCU44 — 7 gauge; ECCU 3/4 — 3 gauge

Finish

  • Simpson Strong-Tie gray paint

Installation

  • Use all specified fasteners; see General Notes
  • Bolt holes shall be a minimum of 1/32" to a maximum of 1/16" larger than the bolt diameter (per 2018 NDS, section 12.1.3.2); bolt holes should be drilled from one side all the way through the beam to maintain hole tolerances
  • Contact engineered wood manufacturers for connections that are not through the wide face

Options

  • Straps may be rotated 90° where W1 ≥ W2.
  • For special, custom or rough-cut lumber sizes, provide dimensions. An optional W2 dimension may be specified. (The W2 dimension on straps rotated 90° is limited by the W1 dimension.)

  1. Uplift loads have been increased for earthquake or wind loading with no further increase allowed. Reduce where other loads govern.
  2. Downloads shall be reduced where limited by allowable loads of the post.
  3. Column sides are assumed to be aligned in the same vertical plane as the beam sides. ECCU models with W1 = 4 5/8″ assume a minimum 3 1/2″-wide post.
  4. Structural composite lumber columns have sides that show either the wide face or the edges of the lumber strands/veneers known as the narrow face. Values in the tables reflect installation into the wide face. See technical bulletin T-C-SCLCLM for load reductions resulting from narrow-face installations.
  5. Beam depth must be at least as tall as H1.
