Shear Plate Washers

Shear plates, also called shear plate timber connectors, shear plate washers, or timber washers, are round, malleable iron discs primarily used for wood-to-steel or wood-to-wood connections. The shear plates provide greater load-bearing capacity then when using a bolt alone and can decrease the number of bolts needed while maintaining the strength of the joints. These malleable metal timber connectors are available in plain or hot dipped galvanized for additional corrosion protection. Washer sizes include 2-5/8” and 4” outside diameter and 3/4”, 13/16”, and 7/8” inside diameters.
