DSP/SSP/SP/SPH/RSP4/TSP Stud Plate Ties

DSP/SSP/SP/SPH/RSP4/TSP

Stud Plate Ties

This product's information may differ depending on the category of use. You are currently viewing details related to Stud Plate Ties. You can also view product information related to the category: Strong-Rod™ URS Components

The stud plate tie series offers general solutions for connecting the stud to the top and bottom plates. All models can be used to make a connection to either the top or bottom plate, and several are suitable for double top plates and studs.

Material

  • DSP/SSP/SPH — 18 gauge; TSP — 16 gauge; all others — 20 gauge

Finish

  • Galvanized. Some products available in ZMAX® coating. See Corrosion Information.

Installation

  • Use all specified fasteners; see General Notes.
  • TSP/DSP/SSP — Sill plate installation: fill all round holes.
  • TSP/DSP/SSP — Top plate installation: fill all round and triangle holes.
  • SP1/SP2/SP3/SP5 — One of the 10d common stud nails is driven at a 45° angle through the stud into the plate.
  • Some products may be installed with the Strong-Drive® SD Connector screw. See model table.

SSP/DSP/TSP Load Table

    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.

   These models are approved for installation with the Strong-Drive® SD Connector screw. See the load values below.

  1. Allowable loads have been increased 60% for wind or earthquake loading with no further increase allowed.
  2. When cross-grain bending or cross-grain tension cannot be avoided, mechanical reinforcement to resist such forces should be considered.
  3. Allowable loads for DSP installed to a rim board are 660 lb. (DF/SP), 545 lb. (SPF/HF).
  4. Noted values only apply to DF/SP members. For SPF values, multiply by 0.86.
  5. Southern pine allowable uplift load is 585 lbs.
  6. Allowable load for TSP installed to DF/SP top plate and SPF/HF stud is 450 lb.
  7. Nails: 10d = 0.148" dia. x 3" long, 10d x 1 1/2" = 0.148" dia. x 1 1/2" long.
    See other nail sizes and information.

SP/SPH/RSP Load Table

  1. SP1/SP2 – drive one stud nail at an angle through the stud into the plate to achieve the table load (see illustration).
  2. Allowable loads have been increased for wind or earthquake loading with no further increase allowed; reduce where other loads govern.
  3. RSP4 – see Installation details (1) and (2) for reference.
  4. RSP4 – F2 is 250 lb. (installation 1) and 250 lb. (installation 2). F1 load is 210 lb. for both installations.
  5. Maximum load for SPH in Southern Yellow Pine is 1,490 lb. for center loading and 745 lb. for side loading.
  6. When cross-grain bending or cross-grain tension cannot be avoided, mechanical reinforcement to resist such forces should be considered.
  7. For retrofit application see technical bulletin T-C-STRAPS.
  8. Use Side (eccentric) load when uplift loads are applied to only one face of the top plate.
  9. Use Center (concentric) loads when uplift loads are applied at the centerline of the top plate, or where equal loads are applied to both sides of the top plate. Center loads should also be used for stud-to-bottom plate loads.
  10. Nails: 10d = 0.148" dia. x 3" long, 10d x 1 1/2" = 0.148" dia. x 1 1/2" long,
    8d x 1 1/2" = 0.131" dia. x 1 1/2" long.
    See other nail sizes and information.
