For use as a hold-down bracket
Developed in conjunction with MiTekTM, the GIB HandiBrac® has been designed and tested in GIB® BL and UP bracing elements. The GIB HandiBrac® is a substitute for bottom plate hold-down straps.
The GIB HandiBrac® provides quick and easy installation. The registered design provides a flush surface for the wall linings because it is fitted inside the framing.
There is therefore no need to check in the framing as is recommended with conventional straps. Because the GIB HandiBrac® conveniently allows for installation and inspection at any stage prior to fitting internal linings, it is suitable for both new and retrofit construction.
GIB HandiBrac® is sold in boxes of 10, each box containing 5 pairs. Components per paired pack include:
NB: Bolt purchased separately to suit either timber or concrete flooring.
