CTS218 Compression and Tension Straps


The CTS218 is designed to repair wood members such as top plates, studs and trusses and is our first strap that handles both tension and compression loads. The unique rolled edges of the strap allow it to span gaps as wide as 4 1/2″ and its 1 1/2″ width enables installation on the narrow face of 2x lumber.

  • Meets the requirements of the IBC and IRC for repairing top plates that have been cut or notched to accommodate plumbing or HVAC ductwork
