  • 22 ga. (27 mil)


  • Galvanized (G90)


  • 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 6d commons per end.
