BP/LBP Bearing Plates

BP/LBP

Concrete Connectors for Cold-Formed Steel Construction

This product's information may differ depending on the category of use. You are currently viewing details related to Concrete Connectors for Cold-Formed Steel Construction. You can also view product information related to the category: Bearing Plates

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. The slotted hole allows for adjustability to account for bolts that are not in the middle of the track-bottom plate.

Material

  • See table

Finish

  • 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.

Installation

  • See General Notes
  • BP/BPS — For shearwall applications, position edge of plate washer within 1/2" of sheathed edge of track-bottom plate
