Best-selling restraint straps

Restraint straps, commonly known as ‘Bat Straps’ are also referred to as tension straps, are used to restrain roof and floor structures.

Restraint straps are made from galvanised or stainless steel and are most commonly used to connect timber floor and roof systems to masonry walls, providing effective anchoring against uplifting forces like wind. The pre-drilled holes allow various fixing points for horizontal and vertical application.

Choosing the correct restraint straps

The first step when using restraint straps is choosing the correct size for your application. When reading the size of a restraint strap, it is important to remember that the bend is included in the overall length. The bend is often 90 degrees, but can be customized otherwise.

For example, our Galvanised Light Duty Restraint Strap is available in over thirty different lengths, including 100mm Galvanised Light Duty Restraint Strap, 500mm Galvanised Light Duty Restraint Strap, 1500mm Galvanised Light Duty Restraint Strap and 2500mm Galvanised Light Duty Restraint Strap.

Installing restraint straps

Before installing your straps, you must check that they fit tightly against the masonry wall face. They must also be turned down at least 100m and be tight against the face of the wall. Place the strap in the desired position, then drill screws in the holes to secure it to the wall.
