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 are 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. 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.
