CCOQ8-SDS2.5 Column Cap
Column caps provide a high capacity connection for column-beam combinations. This design uses Simpson Strong-Tie® Strong-Drive® SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screws to provide faster installation and provides a greater net section area of the column compared to bolts. The SDS screws provide for a lower profile compared to standard through bolts.
CCQ3, ECCQ3, CCQ4, CCQ4.62, ECCQ4, ECCQ4.62, CCQ6, ECCQ6—7 gauge; all others—3 gauge.
Simpson Strong-Tie gray paint, available in HDG; CCOQ and ECCOQ—no coating
Install Simpson Strong-Tie SDS 1/4"x2 1/2" wood screws, which are provided with the column cap. (Lag screws will not achieve the same load.)
CCOQ and ECCOQ column cap only (no straps) may be ordered for field-welding to pipe or other columns. Dimensions are same as CCQ and ECCQ. Load values do not apply.
For rough cut lumber sizes, provide dimensions. An optional W2 dimension may be specified with any column size given. (Note that the W2 dimension on straps rotated 90° is limited by the W1 dimension.)
For end conditions, specify ECCQ.
Straps may be rotated 90° where W1 ≥ W2 and for CCQ5-6.
