You don’t need to be an expert in construction to understand the pros and cons of different garage or shed building designs. Before making a decision on your new building, it’s worth understanding how it will be constructed and how different techniques can impact you. One component that KiwiSpan is proud to exclude from its designs is the knee brace – so let’s take a closer look.
What is a knee brace?
It’s a diagonal support brace which spans the connection of the side column to the roof beam. It usually connects from a metre or so away from the beam-column connection. When knee braces are used in construction, they are clearly visible and protrude into the internal space of a building. KiwiSpan’s clever design allows for strong and durable steel sheds, without these protruding knee braces – all without any compromise to the strength of your structure.
The benefits of avoiding knee braces
KiwiSpan prefers to construct buildings without knee braces because of the value this returns to customers:
