ITW Construction Products Offsite’s Cullen Gable Restraint Bracket
The ability to satisfy the industry’s needs by collaborating and making its construction partners part of the product development process is central to ITW Construction Products Offsite customer-back innovation culture.
ITW Construction Products Offsite was approached by the NHBC and worked in collaboration with the Trussed Rafter Association (TRA) and leading housebuilders to create an NHBC accepted solution with tested and qualified connections for timber gables to masonry walls. This was to maximise safety on-site during the construction process and beyond. The outcome was a gable restraint system accepted by the NHBC as meeting their technical requirements and delivering a robust structural fixing solution.
The Gable Restraint Bracket provides significant site benefits to housebuilders. Junctions between elements that make up the building fabric can cause problems. The Cullen Gable Restraint system saves housebuilders time compared with traditional build methods and assures build quality as the simplification of the junction detail removes on-site complexity of the build process during construction.

ITW Construction Products Offsite solution delivers a more robust system to prevent potential future issues helping make UK new homes a safer environment for occupants. A complete solution that meets the requirements of building standards approve document A.
