Used to provide additional support of chimney, especially when using chimney offsets.
Interior resupport assembly allows for two different methods of chimney resupport. The first method is used at the immediate section of chimney above the upper elbow of an offset. With the appropriate Fire Stop/Joist Shield (JS) in place, clamp the support band around chimney and attach with 6 sheet metal screws. The second means of support is used primarily when the immediate sections of the upper offset do not pass through a joist area and resupport is necessary. The Support Band is clamped around the chimney immediately below a Locking Band. In both methods, the straps are nailed to suitable framing at 2" clearance. The 18' limit of supportable chimney length applies.
