Drywall Framing System
ClarkDietrich U-Channel or Cold Rolled Channel (CRC), attached to the studs with clipss or weld, are one of the most common bridging methods used to provide resistance to stud rotation and minor axis bending under wind and axial loads. 1-1/2" U-Channel is passed through the stud knockout and secured with EasyClip™ (U-Series™) or SwiftClip™ (L-Series) Clip Angles and screws. Lateral bracing is typically installed at a maximum of 48" O.C. Consult ClarkDietrich’s Technical Services for proper spacing. Welding U-Channel to the stud is acceptable but should not be used in studs wider than 6".
