TSBR2-16 Truss Spacer-Restraint
The Simpson Strong-Tie TSBR truss spacer-restraint is a time-saving lateral-restraint product for wood and CFS framing that improves quality and safety while helping to meet the prescriptive recommendations of the WTCA/TPI. Easier to install than wood bracing, the TSBR firmly grips the trusses, capturing on-center spacing and keeping them vertical and plumb after placement, resulting in a better truss installation. The unique design eliminates additional time spent measuring truss spacing and laying out temporary lateral bracing. And once installed, the TSBR can remain in place to be sheathed over, thereby eliminating the need to remove temporary bracing and creating a safer, more stable work platform.
Enables the quick and accurate spacing of trusses without measuring or adjusting
Helps meet prescriptive temporary bracing recommendations of the BCSI
Easily "grabs" onto the truss — may be put in place with one hand
Stays in place during sheathing, saving time and making the roof more stable for workers
Installs in less time and requires less total bracing material than prescriptive wood bracing methods — reducing labor costs
The TSBR is a direct replacement for the TSB truss spacer-bracer
