Friction brings together u-channels and wall studs

ClarkDietrich Building Systems' FastBridge Clips attach U-channels to structural wall studs for lateral bridging with a friction fit design that requires fewer screws to secure the clip to the U-channel. The FastBridge Clip works with 1 1/2-inch U-channels and is available in two versions: a 14-gauge heavy-duty clip for use with 12- to 16-gauge structural studs and an 18-gauge light-duty clip for use with 18- to 20-gauge structural studs.
