Restraint Straps
BAT straps are manufactured in two types. Heavy Duty to provide horizontal restraint and Standard to provide vertical restraint against wind pressure and uplift forces.

Herringbone Joist Straps
Herringbone Joist Struts provide stability to floor joists and significantly reduce labour compared with timber strutting.

Truss Clips

Junction Clips
