EasyClip™ Quick Twist Web Stiffener

Provide reinforcement at critical load points to prevent web crippling

(QTWS) EasyClip™ Quick Twist Web Stiffeners are used to provide reinforcement of joist webs to prevent crippling. Web reinforcement is often required by design to enhance the load capacity of joists.

This stiffener eliminates the need to pre-insert traditional web stiffeners prior to joist installation. The one-piece assembly is easily rotated in-place for a tight fit.

  • Simple, post installation assembly
