We offer a selection of twisted and bent joist restraint straps. All of our joist straps range from lightweight to heavy-duty to fit the needs of every project.
Joist straps, also known as hurricane tie connectors, are designed to hold timber joists in place. They are also used to anchor ceilings, flooring, and decks, and to connect walls.
Joist straps work by wrapping around two sides of wooden 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 what you need to anchor, you can go with a light-duty strap, a heavy-duty strap, a flat strap, or a bent strap. The type you need will vary due to the size and weight of project materials.
For example, the heavy-duty straps are for supporting heavier loads and more massive beams. Others joist straps, such as the bent strap, may provide an L or T-shape plate for wall framing. Joist straps are very versatile pieces and can add a significant amount of strength and stability to regular projects that only require nails or screws.
Joist straps are used to support and anchor heavier loads, such as ceilings, flooring, decks, and even walls. They can be used anywhere that needs support and a firm connection. Depending on the joist size, you can support a weight anywhere from 200 to well over 1,000 lbs.
Joist straps are typically made from galvanised metal which provides extra strength and durability as well as rust-resistance.
