L-Header

Preformed L-header that slides into place quickly

L-Headers are prefabricated light-gauge 90° L-sections that are used in load-bearing wall framing. L-headers slide easily into place and eliminate the labor-intensive process of built-up field-assembled headers. L-headers may not work in all loading situations. Proper loading comparisons should be examined, especially when considering uplift loads. L-headers may be installed as single, one header one side, or double, two headers, one on both sides.

  • Substantial labor savings.
  • Lightweight and easy to handle.
  • Available in stock and custom lengths.
