The ST-36 Quick Cleat is used to form foundation footers up to 32″ high. The maximum center-to-center panel cleat spacing is 32″ for panels up to 24″. For panels over 24″, up to and through 32″, cleat spacing is limited to 24″ maximum on center-to-center. Snap ties should be used with 3/4″ thick panels 18″ or higher, as extreme deflection can occur.
Two types of Quick Cleats are available: A stamped metal cleat, ST-35, is available in 6″ and 8″ wall thickness sizes for both 3/4″ and 1-1/8″ lumber ends. The second version cleat, ST-36, provides the two lumber end attachments connected by wire strut. This type is used for wall thicknesses greater than 5″, with a choice of 3/4″, 1-1/8″, 1-5/8″ and 2-1/4″ lumber ends.
