The SBR for cold-formed steel construction reduce the need for bridging clips. These bracers enable faster stud layout and reduce the overall installed cost of cold-formed steel stud wall construction. The SBR is designed for structural exterior walls. The product is the only spacer bracers that have load data from assembly testing to mitigate risk for specifiers.
Key features of the SBR spacer bracers include:
•Patent-pending, precision-engineered pre-punched slots strategically located to enable 12, 16 and 24 inch on-center stud spacing
•The SBR accommodates 3 5/8- and 6 inch studs in thicknesses of 33 mil (20 ga.) through 68 mil (14 ga.)
•The SBR’s pre-punched holes provide rapid screw installation when spacer-bracer splices are needed for axial load-bearing studs
•In off-layout or end-of run conditions, the hat-section profiles enable clip attachments to the stud with Simpson Strong-Tie LSSC or RCA connectors
