URFP Universal Retrofit Foundation Plate

URFP

On This Page

The URFP universal design provides a method to secure the mudsill to many foundation types. The URFP scalloped, slotted hole feature allows installation flexibility when the mudsill is offset or inset from the foundation edge. With allowable loads deriving from longitudinal embossments and stiffening darts, the URFP may be used as a one-for-one replacement of 1/2" or 5/8" mudsill anchors.

Key Features

  • Ideal where vertical clearance is minimal
  • Increased loads for wind or earthquake loading

Material

  • 14 gauge

Finish

  • Galvanized (G90) or hot-dip galvanized. See Corrosion Information.

Installation

  • Use all specified fasteners; see General Notes
  • Loads are based on test results using 1/4" x 3" Strong-Drive® SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screws, which are supplied
  • Using lag screws as a fastening alternative will not achieve published loads

URFP Retrofit Foundation Plates Load Table
  1. Allowable loads have been increased for wind or earthquake loading with no further increase allowed. Reduce where other loads govern.
  2. Each anchor bolt requires a standard-cut washer. The Simpson Strong-Tie® Titen HD® heavy-duty screw anchor does not require a washer.
  3. Nominal embedment depth for post-installed anchors must be 4" for SET-3G™ or AT-XP®, or use THD50400H Titen HD® screw anchors.
  4. For redwood mudsills, reduce F1 on URFP  to 1,180 lb.
  5. For installation on SPF/HF sill plates, use 0.86 x DF/SF allowable load.
