PERPENDICULAR Gorilla Brace
PERPENDICULAR Gorilla Brace – includes the floor bracket, brace assembly and all parts for installation with the exception of the steel I-beam which is purchased locally. Please choose the size of the Pushing Rod Idler (2”, 3” or 4”) based on the width of your steel beam before adding to the cart (no price difference).
Perpendicular Gorilla Wall Braces Kit
The PERPENDICULAR Gorilla Braces are used to straighten bulging basement walls that are PERPENDICULAR to the ceiling floor joists.
Each Gorilla Wall Brace® comes as a kit with the floor bracket and all assembly parts included, except for the steel beam. The steel beam is purchased locally as it is too cost prohibitive to ship because of the length/weight – see specifications below.
Per our engineering testing specifications, Gorilla Wall Braces® need to be installed every 32 inches or 48 inches along the bowing/bulging basement wall that you wish to straighten depending on the wall type (see specifications below).
An engineered floor bracket is included in each kit. The bracket requires no removal of the concrete floor. NOTE: if the floor is too thin or deteriorated for the screw anchors to hold, cut out concrete 16″ square x 1″ deep & pour concrete around the steel beam. 4″ depth (or greater) required.
Written installation instructions are included in each order, with a link to a video on YouTube to guide homeowners through the entire installation process. A DVD is also available upon request for those without internet access.
