The DBC drywall bridging connector is the latest innovation for cold-formed steel construction from Simpson Strong-Tie. The patent-pending design of the new DBC connector enables one- or two-screw installation, significantly reducing labor and material costs.

The DBC is load-rated for smaller 3/4-inch u-channel bridging. Along with the Simpson Strong-Tie SUBH and MSUBH bridging connectors, the DBC has been extensively lab-tested as a system, ensuring that tabulated design values reflect stud web depth and thickness. The connector has been tested in accordance with ICC-ES AC261.

Designed to fit smaller web knockouts common to drywall studs, the DBC connector is compatible with conventional and proprietary drywall studs ranging from 15- to 33-mil thickness and with stud depths of 3 5/8 inches and 6 inches.
