Our selection of twisted and bent joist restraint straps addresses a broad spectrum of timber fixing ranging from lightweight to heavy-duty connectors designed to aid an efficient and nuanced approach.
Manufactured from galvanised steel or stainless steel, joist straps available at Buildworld truss timber beams by securing two sides of timber beams. They have holes for nails and screwed to fasten them in place securely. Joist hangers typically come with a connecting plate that gets fastened to the frame surrounding the wooden beam.
Depending on the load and nature of required fastening, you can choose a light-duty, heavy-duty, flat, or bent strap. However, the dimensions of the project materials in use play a key role in selecting the appropriate straps. For instance, heavy-duty straps primarily support heavier loads and more massive beams, while joist straps, such as the bent strap, may provide an L or T-shape plate for wall framing.
Vertical anchoring deploys light-duty joist straps to support wall plates which are typically stainless steel or galvanised mild steel manufactured for extra durability.
Heavy-duty Joist straps supporting horizontal heavier loads, such as ceilings, flooring, decks, and even walls, can be additionally used in areas requiring reinforcement and a firm connection.
