Bridging Strapping for CFS joists

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Title: Message
    What gauge does the flat strap bridging for CFS joists need to be? I am using 800S200-54 joists at 12" o.c. I don't see any guidance in the literature I have on choosing a size. I am guessing that a 2" wide, 20 gauge strap would be adequate. I am also using solid bridging at the ends and every five joist spaces.
