  • Ensures validity of installers PS3
  • Tested under ULS and SLS loads to ensure longevity of performance
  • Unique design allows for 50mm of inter-storey drift
  • Unit allows a 30° – 60° bracing angle to mitigate service clashes
  • Unit tested to 45° off wall axis to mitigate service clashes
  • Allows lining and bracing at the same time providing efficiencies on site
Scope of Use
  • For interior application only. Designed to secure timber partition walls and glazed walls. 
  • Must be installed in accordance with manufacturer's specification and within the parameters of AS/NZS1170.
