Recommendations for use of Roof Bracing in bracing walls

Two individually cut pieces of Roof Bracing are required to brace a timber framed wall section. These pieces should overlap to form an ‘X’.

  1. Secure first end of one piece of bracing into position using 30mm x 2.8Ø Multinail galvanised reinforced head nails.
  2. Stretch the Roof Bracing over the entire panel to be braced, ensuring the brace is taut.
  3. Secure the second end while maintaining tension on the brace.
  4. Repeat this procedure for the second piece of Roof Bracing, ensuring an ‘X’ is formed.
  5. Fix T-Plate, Stud Tie or Nail On Stud Tie as required (refer individual Multinail product brochures).

Please use the relevant Standards to determine the number, location and tie-down of bracing units. Bracing capacities stated are relevant for wall heights up to (and including) 2.7m. For wall heights greater then 2.7m, please refer to AS1684.
