Strap Brace Tensioners are used to pre-tension structural bracing strap after it has been installed on wall panels or roof trusses according to AS1684.
STEP 1: Place the SMART tensioner on the strap and insert the screw through one of the center holes of the strap bracing.
STEP 2: Insert the screw into the nut of the SMART tensioner and tighten using a 5/16 tek driver, to pull the strap into the cupped side of the SMART tensioner until the strap slack is removed.
STEP 3: Strap bracing is a tension brace and is installed as cross bracing. When tensioning the straps, take care to ensure even tension to avoid distorting the frame.
