The revolutionary ITBS reduces build cost, confusion, speed of installation and stock holding. The ITBS solves the problem of skew hangers in timber to timber connections. It can be handed left or right on site by the carpenter, removing confusion when the floor is built opposite to the drawing.
The ITBS is also fully adjustable from 5° to 67.5° skew, reducing the need for ‘special’ skew hangers. Finally, the ITBS is a Backer Free hanger removing the need for Backer Blocks in standard installation. Overall, the
revolutionary ITBS reduces build cost, confusion, speed of installation and stock holding.
Standard Installation Sequence
Step 1: Position the back plate onto the header in the required position. Ensure backer blocks are fitted if enhanced performance is required.
Step 2: Secure the acute side of the backplate (inside angle) with the specified nails.
Step 3: Adjust the angle of the backplate (if different from 45 degrees) to suit the required angle. Use either adjustable set square or the guide tables shown below: Bend one time only.
Step 4: Secure the obtuse side of the back plate onto the header with all the specified nails, ensuring the face of the back plate is tight against the header.
Step 5: Offer the stirrup to the back plate ensuring it is located on the correct side (which can be either left or right hand side). Once all of the hooks (on the back plate) are clearly through the apertures (on the stirrup) slide in a downward direction ensuring all hooks engage onto the stirrup and click into position.
Step 6: Locate the floor joist into the stirrup ensuring the joist is set tight to the back of the stirrup. The joist should be secured into the stirrup with all specified nails on the open face of the stirrup.
