The Strong-Wall high-strength wood shearwall bearing plate kit is intended for use with Strong-Wall high-strength wood shearwalls for installation on wood beams. The kit includes both the bearing plates and screws needed for installation. The bearing plates help to distribute compression loads to a larger area of the wood beam while the Strong-Drive® SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screws transfer shear loads to the wood beam, thereby improving performance in that application.
