- Certified welds for confidence in strength and loading
- Bolt spacing that meets NDS code requirements to ensure optimal performance
- Diamond holes to provide temporary fastening
- 7 gauge or 3 gauge depending on size
- Simpson Strong-Tie gray paint. ( Also available in HDG; see Corrosion Information, contact us for availability and price )
- Use all specified fasteners; see General Notes
- Bolt holes shall be a minimum of 1/32" to a maximum of 1/16" larger than bolt diameter (per 2015 and 2018 NDS 22.214.171.124)
- Many combinations of beam and post sizes can be manufactured. Refer to worksheet "Options for Multiple-Beam, Bolted Column Caps" attached under the Specifications tab
- The download shall be determined from the allowable loads for the unmodified product (see pic 2). The side beam can take a maximum of 40% of the download and shall not exceed 10,665 lb. The sum of the loads for the side beam(s) and main beam cannot exceed the table load.
- Uplift loads do not apply for ECCL caps.
- The column width in the direction of the main beam width must be the same as the main beam width (W1).
- Specify the stirrup height from the top of the cap. The minimum side stirrup heights (H2 or H3) is 6 1/2" (3 1/2" for models ending in “44”).
- The L dimension may vary depending on the width of the side stirrup (W3 or W4).
- Column caps may be ordered without the column straps for field welding to a steel column. Specify “No Straps” when ordering. Weld by designer. Full loads apply for the beam and the post cap.
- An ECCLR66 with W3 = 3 5/8", H2 = 7 1/2" is an ECC66 end column cap with a 4x beam on the right side (specify direction left or right for stirrup) and stirrup seat 1" below the cap seat
California Proposition 65
⚠WARNING: – www.P65Warnings.ca.gov.
We are providing this warning pursuant to a law passed by California in 1986 called the “California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986”, or “Proposition 65” for short.
A Proposition 65 warning does not mean a product is in violation of any product-safety standards or requirements. In fact, the California government has clarified that “[t]he fact that a product bears a Proposition 65 warning does not mean by itself that the product is unsafe.”
The California agency tasked with implementing Proposition 65 has also explained, “You could think of Proposition 65 more as a ‘right to know’ law than a pure product safety law.” See http://oehha.ca.gov/prop65/background/p65plain.html
