CCTQM5.50-SDS Column Cap
The CCQM/CCTQM/CCCQM/ECCLQM embedded column caps are designed for use in raised pier foundations and applications where heavy timbers rest on concrete or concrete block columns. The heavy-gauge beam seats and unique SSTB-style anchor bolts provide the high uplift and lateral resistance needed to help resist high wind events. The new ECCLQMD is a variation that incorporates an additional seat to support a third member at the corner connection. The new CCCQM is a variation that incorporates a stirrup on each side for intermediate support beams perpendicular to the main channel.
Framing is fastened with Simpson Strong-Tie® Strong-Drive® SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screws (included) that install with no pre-drilling and feature a corrosion-resistant double barrier coating.
CCQM – Intended for use along a floor support beam and non-corner locations.
CCTQM – Also for use along a floor support beam and non-corner locations with a side bucket that accommodates intermediate support beams coming at 90 degrees.
CCCQM – For use along a floor support beam with a stirrup on each side of the main channel that accommodates intermediate support beams coming at 90 degrees.
ECCLQM-KT – Intended for use at the corners with MSTQM straps to make the connection from the ECCLQM to the wall framing above.
ECCLL/RQMD-KT – Ideal for applications where a member is needed off the corner of the structure, such as a deck joist/beam.
