    Cool blocking to floor joists

    Could anyone please tell me what are the min requirements for blocking in 240*51 floor joists spanning 5.5m at 450c-c to the first floor. The joists are i-beam type. Cheer all.

    check the manufacturer's website, blocking is one thing but transferring the raking forces between floor is another.

    The hyjoist installation manual has about 4 pages on it ranging from metal strapping to continuous rim joist.
