How to fill space between wall and water heater?

It is common practice for original installation of water heaters to be on a small platform. It is normally installed in the center of the platform. As a result there is a space between the wall and the water heater! What is required for this space?
Asked by: Rob
The California Department of General Services (GSA) Division of the State Architect has a document titled Guidelines for Earthquake Bracing of Residential Water Heaters that answers this question. They have a solution using straps and another using 2x4 and gypsum wallboard.

Maximum Distance from Wall

My new heat pump water heater requires the unit be 8" off the wall. Will the strap wrap it properly - it's diameter is 26"? Also, is there 1 or 2 in the pack for this price?
Asked by: ggh
The maximum distance from the wall is 6". Refer to the CA Department of General Services Guidelines for Earthquake Bracing of Residential Water Heaters.
