DBC Drywall Bridging Connector
Next in the line of innovative solutions for Cold-Formed Steel Construction is the Simpson Strong-Tie® DBC Drywall Bridging Connector. Patent pending design allows for 1 or 2 screw installation of the DBC, significantly reducing labor and material cost. The first and only connector load rated for 3/4" u-channel, the DBC joins the SUBH and MSUBH as the only bridging connectors tested as a system, ensuring that published design capacities capture the influence of stud web depth and thickness.
Most applications require only a single screw

Compatible with drywall stud depths of 3-5/8" and 6" with 1-1/2" wide knockouts

Install drywall studs so that the web knockouts of adjacent studs line-up on a horizontal plane and that the 3/4" keyhole of the web knockout is at the bottom.
