The ECCLQ, CCCQ and CCTQ column caps provide strong, multiple beam-to-column connector options. The design uses Strong-Drive® SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screws to provide faster installation and a lower profile compared to standard through bolts. Screws are configured to provide high uplift design values.
Uplift loads have been increased for earthquake or wind loading with no further increase allowed. Reduce where other loads govern.
Allowable load is per seat. Side beams must be loaded symmetrically for the CCCQ.
The combined uplift loads applied to all beams in the connector must not exceed the total allowable uplift load listed in the table.
The ECCLQ side beam may use a side beam uplift load up to 2,350 lb. The deflection of this load may exceed the standard 1/8" deflection by an additional 1/8".
The combined download for all the carried beams shall not exceed the allowable download for the unmodified product (CCQ load for CCCQ and CCTQ, or ECCQ load for ECCLQ). The download for each side beam shall not exceed the allowable load shown.
Column width in the direction of the beam width must be the same as the main beam width (W1).
