Product: CCQM/CCTQM/ECCLQM
Manufacturer: Simpson Strong-Tie
The new CCQM/CCTQM/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 SSTB anchor bolts provide the high uplift and lateral resistance needed to help resist high-wind events. CCQM (bottom left; shown installed, top right inset) is intended for use along a floor support beam and noncorner locations. CCTQM (bottom right) is for use along a floor support beam and noncorner locations with a side bucket that accommodates intermediate support beams coming in at 90°. ECCLQM (top left) is intended for use at the corners with a strap to make the connection to the wall framing above. strongtie.com
