Ensure to follow section 1.6.4 to mark out the suitable locations in the joist and to drill the pilot hole for fixing.

This method should be used when there is no access to the ceiling loft space or joists and the track runs perpendicular and/or diagonal to the joists.

1. Align an unthreaded track bracket in the correct orientation against the joist pilot hole.
2. Place an M12 washer onto the coach bolt and thread the bolt into the joist, securing the bracket.
3. Repeat this process for each direct fixing into a joist.
