Our selection of twisted and bent joist restraint straps addresses a wide spectrum of timber fixing that range from lightweight to heavy-duty connectors designed for aiding an efficient and nuanced approach.
Joist straps, also known as hurricane tie connectors or restraint straps, are designed to enforce structural grip in both vertical and horizontal joints to withstand the force generated by high speed winds. Primarily employed to fortify structural framework, joist straps anchor ceilings, flooring, and decks, and connect walls.
Manufactured from galvanised steel or stainless steel, joist straps 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 strap, a heavy-duty strap, a flat strap, or a bent strap. However, the dimensions of the project materials in use play a key role in selecting the appropriate set of 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.
Manufactured from stainless steel or galvanized metal and sometimes coated with an extra layer of plastic to bolster anti-corrosive measures, joist straps arrive with holes pre-fabricated to support bolts, nails, and screws to fulfil varying degrees of strapping and reinforcement tasks.
