Description & Documents
The SBP4 Supplementary Bearing Plate 2" X 4" Top Plate can be used instead of extra truss plys or nail-on scabs to distribute concentrated truss reactions and avoid top plate crushing. The two-piece design accomodates any number of girder plys. A wraparound design gives superior uplift resistance, and reinforcement ribs effectively distribute bearing loads. Works with both single and double 2" x 4" or 2" x 6" top plates. Made of 16 gauge steel with G90 galvanizing finish.
- Use all specified fasteners: see PDF below for complete fastener schedule based on uplift load
- Not for use with treated lumber.
- Must be installed in pairs.
