MiTek's BraceWall Bracket connects the ceiling diaphragm to the top of non load bearing walls and enables lateral loads to be distributed into bracing walls in accordance with AS1684.2 and AS1684.3 “Residential Timber-Framed Construction” clause 188.8.131.52 and AS1684.4 clause 184.108.40.206. Each BraceWall Bracket replaces a pair of timber shear blocks. It also acts simultaneously as an InternalWall Bracket and is faster and easier to install than timber shear blocks.
