Bearing plates are key components in transferring loads from the post and top plates to the rods in a continuous rod tiedown system. Bearing plates must be designed to spread the loads across the sole plates to minimize the effects of wood crushing. These plates transfer the incremental bearing loads via compression of the sole plates and bending of the bearing plates to a tension force in the rod.

Material

ASTM A36; ASTM A-1011 Grade 33 for 3 ga.

Finish

PL - Gray Primer; BP - None; LBP - Galvanized; ATS-BP - Powder Coat

  1. Secure BP and PL bearing plates to framing with washer and ATS-N_nut over ATUD or TUD.
  2. Secure ATS-BP bearing plates to framing with ATS-IN_KT isolator nut kit.
  3. Bearing plate loads are based on a hole through the wood plate below that is 1/4" larger in diameter than the rod.
