The TBD22 diagonal truss brace offers a time-saving subsitute for 2x4 diagonal bracing that helps meet the recommendations of WTCA/TPI BCSI. The TBD travels in a box like a flat strap, and is formed into an A-shape as it is pulled from the carton to provide rigidity and prevent sagging between trusses during installation. As it is fastened to the trusses the brace flattens, allowing sheathing to be installed right over it and saving the time typically needed to remove 2x4 bracing.
When installed on the top and bottom chords as well as the web planes, the TBD captures the lateral construction and wind forces delivered by the TSBR truss spacer restraints and transfers it diagonally in tension to the edge of the braced-truss system. When used in conjunction with the TSBR, the TBD22 meets or exceeds the recommendations set forth by the WTCA/TPI BCSI.
