Pryda has developed a smart, single sided, high capacity stud tie that means truss and frame fabricators will no longer have to flip wall frames to install them.
The Ezi Stud Tie achieves an impressive 5.5kN hold down capacity â€“ 60 per cent more than existing Pryda single sided alternatives.
Introduced in both Australia and New Zealand, the Ezi Stud Tie can be used to resist a wider range of truss spans (roof load widths) than previously and provides several features and benefits.
They are quick and easy to install, obviating the need to lift and flip wall frames and thereby helping to prevent lost time injuries during pre-fabrication manufacture as a result.
On site, the Ezi Stud Tie is easy to install with no checking of timber required. The stud tie can be fitted after the ribbon plate (top plate packer) has been attached and is pre-bent to ensure correct placement.
ClawÂ© nails within the tie penetrate both soft and hardwood timbers and faster installation with a hammer saves on both construction time and costs.
The Ezi Stud Tie meets tie-down requirements for most N3 wind zones – and even some N4 applications.
The ties are manufactured from code compliant G300-Z275 1.0mm zinc plated steel and are automatically specified with top and bottom plates using Prydaâ€™s Component Design Spreadsheet.
Within New Zealand, the Pryda Ezi Stud Tie has been designed to exceed the requirement of Table 8.18 NZ3604:2011 â€“ â€œfixing of top plate of wall to supporting members such as studs and lintels at 600mm centresâ€.
Sold in cartons of 100, it also is available singly through building merchants.
