HDSC Header Bracket

Header Clip for RedHeader PRO™ and HDS Framing Systems

The HDSC Header Bracket (HDSC) is the perfect complement to the RedHeader PRO™ and HDS® Framing system. This simple, yet innovative header bracket turns curtain-wall header installation from a two- man job into a one-person job.

 This unique, prepunched clip also eliminates surface head fastener buildup that can create finishing challenges.
