Bridging Connectors

April 2015

Simpson Strong-Tie offers a lower-cost option to its popular SUBH line of u-channel bridging connectors for cold-formed steel construction. The newly released LSUBH 20-gauge bridging connector provides all of the benefits of the SUBH connector, and is suitable for many wind- and load-bearing situations with light to moderate load demand.
Key features of the LSUBH bridging connector include only a one-screw installation for many applications. The connectors accommodate industry standard 1.5” u-channel along with 3 5/8”, 6” and 8” studs in thicknesses of 33 mil (20 ga.) through 54 mil (16 ga.). Also, the LSUBH is tested to include stud-web strength and stiffness in the tabulated design values.
