Simpson Strong-Tie BP5/8PC – 2-1/2-inch x 2-1/2-inch Bearing Plate with 5/8-inch Bolt Diameter
Bearing plates give greater bearing surface than standard-cut washers, and help distribute the load at these critical connections.
The BPS and LBPS are bearing plates that offer increased flexibility while meeting the latest requirements of the code for 2×4 and 2×6 walls. The slotted hole allows for adjustability to account for bolts that are not in the middle of the sill plate.
- See General Notes.
- BP/BPS — For shearwall applications, position edge of plate washer within 1/2″ of sheathed edge of sill plate.
- BPS-6 plate washers are sized to accommodate the 1/2″ from the sheathed edge in single- and double-sheathed 2×6 walls.
- Standard-cut washer required with BPS slotted bearing plates. Washer not required when used with Titen HD® heavy-duty screw anchors.
