WBT Wall Brace Tensioner
The WBT is an easy to use wall strap brace tensioner that takes the slack out of strap bracing (up to 20mm) reducing deflection in braced wall panels. The WBT comes with a bolt and nut that can tension strap bracing up to 32mm wide. The WBT takes load in tension only, and should be used in pairs; one on each strap. Saves time in the field.
- See General Notes.
- Place WBT near center of diagonal wall brace.
- Install bolt through strap and WBT with nut facing towards the wall cavity.
- Tightening the nut requires 10mm hex head deep socket setter. Tighten until the slack is taken out of the strap.
