OVERVIEW

STABILIZER LATERAL BRACE

The Stabilizer™ permanent lateral brace makes truss bracing easy. The 24” on center Stabilizer spaces trusses exactly; within 1/32” – without measuring or layout sticks. It remains as a permanent structural lateral brace which means you do not have to “uninstall” it like you do with temporary wood bracing. You can get all the same benefits with the 16″ on center Stabilizer.

  • Saves Time – everything goes much quicker and much smoother. Speeds up some jobs like spacing trusses, eliminates others altogether like not needing to remove temporary bracing before sheathing.
  • Saves Labor – less time setting & bracing trusses translates to lower costs. Eliminating lumber cutting, hoisting, and handling for temporary bracing means additional labor savings. And because there is no lumber-bracing tear down, there’s no labor time spent removing bracing, de-nailing, and re-stacking.
  • Saves Lumber – Little (if any) is needed for temporary bracing.
  • Saves Crane Time – Adds up quick at $100 – $200 per  hour. No-need-to-go-back – good truss teams can usually install both the STABILIZER bracing and additional permanent wood bracing and still keep pace with the crane. This minimizes the highest risk period of any truss setting job – after the trusses are set but before permanent bracing is installed.
