True-Brace


Introducing True-Brace, a New Product Innovation from Telling Industries

True-Brace is used as mechanical bridging for studs. Typically, U-Channel or CRC, is attached to studs via clips or a weld to eliminate stud rotation and minor axis bending under wind or axial loads. 1-1/2” True-Brace is passed through the stud knockout and snapped securely into place with Telling’s patented technology saving valuable time and money.

True-Brace features an innovative, highly engineered design that securely locks the True-Brace into the stud slot hole without the need for clips or welding for most non-structural applications.

• Made of 16 gauge Galvanized Steel
• Highly engineered gussets for secure fit in stud knockout

  • Gussets add strength
  • Width of gusset is narrower than oval punch out on stud

• True-Brace locks into the stud without clips or welding
• Notches every 4” to accommodate 12”, 16”, 24” OC stud spacing
• Lengths: 52” stock length. (Other lengths available in 4” increments)

Highly Engineered Hourglass Notch

  • Waist of hourglass notch locks into oval punch out on stud
  • Wider aperture at top & bottom of Hourglass Notch facilitates ease of assembly into stud
  • Notches every 4” to accommodate 12”, 16”, 24” OC stud spacing

Highly engineered hourglass notch

• Reduces Installation Time
• 10% Savings on Material and Labor Costs
• No Clips or Welding Required for Most Applications
• Easy Installation Due to Patented Design

  • Typical CRC legs are bent slightly less than 90˚
  • True-Brace legs are wider than oval punch out on stud, thus cannot pull out of stud
  • Only at the gusset is True-Brace narrower than the oval punch out on stud
  • True-Brace legs are bent to 105˚

• Available in galvanized steel meeting ASTM A-1003 or hot-dipped galvanized steel meeting
ASTM A-653, G60

• Bridging, (lateral support) in walls carrying axial and/or wind loads.
• Bracing studs at door bucks and furring for ceilings.
• Used in conjunction with metal lath and plaster in partitions, ceilings, column and beam enclosures, etc.
• Clips are not required for many non-load bearing applications.
