Customer Questions & Answers

can this be used for outdoor deck joists using PT lumber?

I have seen elsewhere that some kinds of metal bridging is not intended for use with pressure treated lumber. Does this apply for this product?
Asked by: JGK481
Hello and thank you for your question. The LTB20 comes with a galvanized G90 zinc coating (0.90 oz./sqin) . A G90 coating would not be recommended to be used with pressure treated lumber in an exterior environment.

Usable for post construction in steel framed house with open webbed steel joists?

The open webbed steel joists, I assume, would allow for this type of bridging to be screwed to the under side of the joist top and then to the bottoms of the under side of joists???
Asked by: BouncyFloors
We have not evaluated this installation and cannot say how it would perform. The intended installation, as shown on our website/in our catalog, is for the LTB to be installed over the top of one joist and under the bottom of the next joist. Thank you!

will this fit 2x12 12" on center?

Asked by: lucasphil
No, I’m sorry to say they will not. For 2x12 joists at 12" on center, please see the TB20 here on the Home Depot website.

Can these be used in a pre-existing (not a new build)

Can I use these to reinforce my current floor joists? If so, how would I attach the top (floor) end?
Asked by: PeteP
The LTB style tension bridging cannot be installed when the floor sheathing is already in place. For this condition, please see the NCA models. Thank you!
