LTB Light Tension Bridging

Share This Post:


The LTB provides bracing between floor joists as a critical contribution to the structural strength of a floor. Installed in pairs, this light tension-type bridging keeps joists in place and prevents them from rotating while distributing loads over more than one joist. The LTB features a staggered nail pattern to accommodate 2×8 and 2×10 joists and is designed for maximum nailing flexibility, with the option to use as few as two nail holes on each end, and as many as six.

Key Features

  • Galvanized for corrosion resistance
  • Keeps floor system continuity and prevents joist rotation
  • Installation flexibility, with six nail holes on each end and a staggered nail pattern


  • 22 ga. (27 mil)


  • Galvanized (G90)


  • Support floor joists with a depth-to-thickness ratio of six or more with bridging at intervals not exceeding 8′. If span is greater than 8′, install on 2×8 or larger joists. If span is greater than 16′, use more than one pair.
  • Tension bridging works only in tension, so must be used in cross pairs.
  • Install bridging tightly; loose installation may allow floor movement.
  • Requires two 0.113″ x 2″ nails per end.
