Supplementary Bearing Plates
Reference Series: TBE
Use the SBP instead of extra truss plies or nail-on scabs to distribute concentrated truss reactions and avoid top plate crushing. The two-piece design accommodates any number of girder plies. A wraparound design gives superior uplift resistance, and reinforcement ribs effectively distribute bearing loads. Works with both single and double 2x4 or 2x6 top plates.
Materials: 16 gauge
