- Use all specified fasteners: 2 8d nails for each plate, 1 8d nail for each stud.
- Not for use with treated lumber.
- Bracing is a framing aid, not a substitute for structural shearwall components.
- Use with 16" o.c. studs. Install one brace at each end of wall section, not exceeding 25', in an opposing "V" pattern. Use a length of the bracing as a straight web to mark studs. Cut a saw kerf 5/8" deep (1" deep for WBC). Insert the bracing web into the saw kerf, and drive one nail into the top plate. Raise the wall section into place and plumb. Finish fastening according to the nail schedule.
