The nail connection at the end generally dictates the load-bearing capacity.

Multiple wind brace bands can be arranged side by side to distribute stronger forces. It is advisable to use a wind brace band tensioner to ensure the straps are evenly tightened.

Wind brace bands are fastened using Würth anchor nails or ASSY joist hanger screws.

Per attachment point, at least 2 nails or ASSY joist hanger screws must be used.

Edge clearances and centre to centre distances in line with EC5 must be observed for nails and screws.

Ensure that wind and tensile forces are correctly transferred to the roof structure.
