A wind brace or a stability brace is a cross that connects the steel truss of constructions such as a garage. The collection of multiple of these elements are called a wind brace.
What is the function of a wind brace?
A wind brace serves to divide power between the different elements. Because of this, a construction is able to carry more weight and sustain harder winds. A simple truss is not fit to carry al the weight sufficiently. A wind brace does.
By using wind braces you are sure to have created a construction that is able to sustain different types of weather.
