Load Tables

    These products are available with additional corrosion protection. Additional products on this page may also be available with this option, check with Simpson Strong-Tie for details.

  1. Allowable bearing stress for masonry is based on an f'c of 1,500 psi using the IBC (ACI 530 2.1.9.3) Allowable Stress Design. Wood bearing is based on f'c–perp of 650 psi.
  2. When installed on masonry, use the lesser of the masonry or the wood allowable load values. When installed on concrete, a minimum f'c = 2,500 psi shall be used and use the wood values as the limiting allowable bearing load values.
  3. Allowable horizontal loads are bolt values and include increase for wind or earthquake loading. Loads must be reduced if stresses in masonry or concrete are limiting.
  4. Beams must fully bear on base plate.
  5. The GLBT5 has a WT4x9 structural tee; the GLBT6 has a WT4x12 structural tee.
  6. Specify "W" dimension when ordering.
  7. Uplift loads do not apply for this connector.
