yes, you can as long as stud spacing is 16". But put more (about 50% more) ties than what is specified.

The spacing would depend upon the weight of the type of insulation, as well as how snugly it fits into position. The ties are cheap enough, so I wouldn't go more than 2 feet apart on hung insulation lengths. Especially if it is a "loose" fit.

Im no Mason but I have always called the wall ties, or just Ties.

I need a product which will span 16 inch enginered floor truses in a basement ceiling. Will this 16 in product work for me?

Asked by Linda December 11, 2012

NO NO NO!!!! This product WILL NOT WORK with 16" on center TJI/Engineered/I-beam floor joists!!! They are only 15 1/2" inches long and you will need rods about 16 1/2" long - the space between the OSB portion of TJI beams is 15 1/2 +/- - buy the 24" type and cut each one. It's a pain but doable. These are made for dimensional lumber ONLY.

I have a 1650 SQFT home how far apart do I space the ties? How many cases will I need?

Space them about every 3-4 feet. This may vary if there are pipes, duct lines, ect. Good luck

Used this to hold faced insulation in place in attic space. Can be placed one handed. 4 stars since some supports need to be reapplied several times to get the correct bend.

I insulated the floors in a crawl space with R21 unbacked insulation and these ties were a perfect solution for sagging insulation. These ties are so easy to use I could push them up with one hand.

Made the installation of insulation between floor joists a breeze. I kept a stack in my back pocket and was able to hold the insulation with one hand and slide one of these rods in place with the other.

The Simpson Strong-Tie in which I wasn't aware of at all until a Home Depot rep suggested it to me, has worked wonders! I was insulating my crawl space and I thought a staple gun would do, boy was i wrong. In less than 10 minutes, and a little bit of sweat and i was done! Thanks Home Depot! SG

They do the job they were meant for. It would be costly and time consuming to put up wood slats to hold the insulation under a floor. Last owner did not put anything to hold the insulation up and most of it was on the grown. I put new insulation in with a higher R value.
