DBC Drywall Bridging Connector for Cold-Formed Steel Simpson Strong-Tie
Pleasanton, Calif.

The DBC drywall bridging connector for cold-formed steel construction is new from Simpson Strong-Tie. The patent-pending design of the new DBC connector enables one- or two-screw installation, reducing labor and material costs. The DBC is load-rated for smaller ¾-inch, u-channel bridging. Along with the Simpson Strong-Tie SUBH and MSUBH bridging connectors, the DBC has been lab tested as a system, ensuring that tabulated design values reflect stud web depth and thickness. The connector has been tested in accordance with ICC-ES AC261.
