EcoBrace

Benefits of EcoBrace

Simple and effective site-built portal for achieving loading bearing and/or wall bracing requirements in residential construction with superior capability for withstanding lateral loads.

  • Timber portal solution for a large range of opening sizes, heights, and applications
  • Rigid frame provides high lateral capacities
  • Enables maximum portal openings in standard wall framing
  • Lighter and easier to handle than steel braced wall frames
  • More economical solution for concrete anchors
  • Certification provided

General assembly

EcoBrace features easy assembling with only one type of screws needed – Multinail advance ∅8mm pan head screws.

The screw pattern shown on the general assembly details are for illustration purpose only. Different screw patterns are designed and optimised for different timber sizes and applications.

Testing

Each Multinail Advance product undergoes rigorous testing to ensure its suitability and compliance with Australian engineering codes and standards.

Specifically, the EcoBrace portal frame system connections have undergone extensive in-house testing using engineered wood products (EWP) samples from various Australian suppliers.

All testing samples were kindly donated by Dindas, ITI, Meyer Timber, OZLVL, Tillings, Wesbeam.
