Bearing Plates


Bearing plates are key components in transferring loads from the post and top plates to the rods in a continuous rod tiedown system. Bearing plates must be designed to spread the loads across the sole plates to minimize the effects of wood crushing. These plates transfer the incremental bearing loads via compression of the sole plates and bending of the bearing plates to a tension force in the rod.
