Bridging + Bracing


Spazzer® 5400 Bridging Bar
Facilitates the rapid erection of structural wall framing

ClarkDietrich TradeReady® Spazzer® 5400 spacer bar is a pre-notched, 16-gauge,
galvanized steel spacer and bridging bar, engineered to facilitate the rapid, efficient
erection of exterior curtain wall framing, loadbearing walls and high interior partitions
constructed of structural studs. Until now, most bridging in steel studs was accomplished
with cold-rolled channel that required bridging clips or welding.

The Spazzer bridging bar is equipped with proprietary prepunched slots that reduce
installation costs up to 40% and provide excellent torsional and lateral stud restraint.
The Spazzer Bar Guard™ retainer clip or the Spazzer Snap-In Grommet should be used
to secure the Spazzer bar when used in load-bearing applications.

• Saves up to 40% in combined labor and material costs.
• Prenotched at 12", 16" and 24" intervals, so no layout is needed.
• Eliminates clip angles and the labor required to install them.
• U.S. Patent No. 6,708,460 and other patent pending.

U-Channel (CRC)
Traditional cold-rolled Channel (CRC) for bridging

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".

Caution:
• Clip Angles must be used with screws to brace cold-formed framing properly.
  U-Channel does not provide proper bracing if it is not adequately attached to the framing
  member.

• Extreme care should be taken in the quality of the weld. If the weld burns through or
  does not penetrate, the U-channel will not be effective.

Blocking / Strapping
Commonly used bracing for wall studs deeper than 6"

Properly spaced horizontal steel bracing provides resistance to stud rotation and minor
axis buckling under wind and axial loads. Block and strapping is typically used when wall
studs exceed 6". U-Channel or the Spazzer® bar does not provide sufficient bracing for
members wider than 6". Both stud flanges must be attached to top and bottom runner
flanges to provide proper end support. Floor and ceiling runners must also be anchored
securely to the structure. To utilize the stud’s load carrying capacity fully, horizontal
bracing must be installed at proper intervals.

Lateral bracing consists of a field-cut stud or track for solid blocking and steel strap
bracing on both flanges of the studs. Solid blocking is placed at each end of the wall,
adjacent to wall openings and 8' O.C. maximum. The blocking is attached to each
adjacent stud via EasyClip™ E- or S- Series™ clips, or when a track is used, the flanges
are cut, the web bent and a minimum 4" overlap is used to secure the track block to the
studs. Strap bracing, 2" wide and 20-gauge (33 mil) minimum, is fastened to each solid
block and stud flange.

• Blocking is field cut.
• Used if knockouts do not align.


Tension Strapping / Shear Wall Bracing
Bracing for load-bearing framing to resist racking under wind and seismic loads

Diagonal tension strapping and gusset plate components are used in combination to
provide shearwall (racking restraint) for light-gauge load- bearing framing under wind and
seismic loads. They are normally installed on both sides of the wall directly over framing
members and are easily covered with facing materials. Straps are positioned diagonally
from the bottom track to the top track. In order to resist load in each direction, an
X-configuration should be used. At a minimum, double studs are positioned at ends of
the X-brace to serve as compression studs.

Straps are either attached directly to the compression studs or are attached via Gusset
Plates. Compression studs must be anchored to the foundation, normally with Simpson*
uplift anchors. For multi-story construction, the uplift loads are extremely high. It is not
uncommon to require 20,000 to 40,000 pounds of uplift force at these connections.
Since Simpson® anchors are not designed to resist this magnitude of force, it is
recommended that embedded plates be installed prior to pouring the concrete foundation.
A heavy steel assembly is then welded to the embedded plate and to the compression
studs.

Caution: Racking loads are first transferred to the roof or floor decking and then to the
shearwalls (X-bracing). The X-bracing then relies on a proper foundation to resist uplift
and shear forces. In order for the system to function properly, the load path from the roof
or floor deck to the shearwalls to the foundation must be complete. This normally requires
additional bracing, blocking, track and rim splices, drag struts, uplift anchors and
heavy-duty foundations.

• Strapping is available in flat lengths and coil form.
• Available widths are 2”, 4”, 6”, 8”, 10” and 12”.
• Gauges: 20 (33 mils), 18 (43 mils), 16 (54 mils), 14 (68 mils) and 12 (97 mils).
• Standard gusset plate sizes are 6”x 6”, 6”x 12” and 12”x 12”.
Backing Plate
Added support where shelves, cabinets, fixtures or handrails are installed

ClarkDietrich's backing plate is a general multipurpose flat stock that is used for backer
plate to support shelves, cabinets, fixtures or handrails when applied to metal framing.
Backing plate should not be used as tension strapping or cross bracing. Diagonal
Tension Strapping should be used in those applications.

• Use as backer plates for attachment of fixtures to metal stud walls.
• Available in 2”, 3”, 4”, 6”, 8”, 10” and 12” widths and 25 and 20 gauge.
