Description & Documents
The MB816 Grip-Tooth Bridging features special teeth which grip joists and provide easy single-nail installation. It can be installed after subfloor is in place. It is constructed of 22-gauge steel with a G90 galvanizing finish.
- Use all specified fasteners (one 8d x 1-1/2" nail)
- Not for use with treated lumber
- Bridging should be installed on floor joists with a nominal depth-to-thickness ratio of 5 to 6 or more (2005 National Design Specification for Wood Construction; Section 4.4.1). Bridging units should be installed in pairs at intervals of 8' or less. Bridging pairs should form an "X" between joists; leave a slight space between the units to avoid noise-generating contact. Follow specific installation instructions below for particular models
- May be installed before or after sheathing. Position the unbent end of the bridging unit near the top of the joist and drive prongs into wood with a hammer blow to the heel of the bent end. Wedge bent end near the lower edge of the opposite joist, set teeth into wood with hammer blow. Nail holes are provided at the bent end if prongs are damaged during installation. Fully seat nails to avoid any movement against the bridging and subsequent floor noise
