The LTB's staggered nail pattern accommodates 2x8 and 2x10 joists. Use just two of the six nail holes at each end. LTB40 has rigid prongs that install easily into the joist, and embossments that allow crisp bends.

Material

  • 22 ga. (27 mil)

Finish

  • Galvanized (G90)

Installation

  • Support floor joists with a depth-to-thickness ratio of six or more with bridging at intervals not exceeding 8'. If span is greater than 8', install on 2x8 or larger joists. If span is greater than 16', use more than one pair.
  • Tension bridging works only in tension, so must be used in cross pairs.
  • Install bridging tightly; loose installation may allow floor movement.
  • LTB requires two 0.113" x 2" nails per end.
