Bearing Plates give greater bearing surface than standard cut washers, and help distribute the load at these critical connections.
The BP1/2-3 and BP5/8-3 are 3"x3" bearing plates that meet the latest requirements of the International Residential CodeŽ. These plate washers are available uncoated or with a hot dip galvanized HDG finish.
The BPS and LBPS are 3"x3" bearing plates that offer increased flexibility while meeting the latest requirements of the code. The slotted hole allows for adjustability to account for bolts that are not in the middle of the sill plate.
The BP5/8 SKT uses SDS 1/4"x1 1/2" screws to provide lateral resistance when 5/8" diameter sill holes are overdrilled (screws are provided). The shear capacity of the connection and the sill/anchor bolt shall be determined by the Designer for each installation.
LBP, LBPS & BP5/8S - Galvanized; BPM7/8-2 - Zinc Plated; BPS, BP - None. BP's may be ordered HDG; LBP and LBPS products may be ordered ZMAX
