Spacer bracers lay out studs

Simpson Strong-Tie Co. Inc.'s SBR and DBR spacer bracers for cold-formed steel construction enable fast stud layout and reduce the need for bridging clips. Pre-punched slots allow 12-inch, 16-inch and 24-inch on-center stud spacing. DBR spacer bracers are for interior walls and are designed to eliminate stud bow and allow for quick drywall attachment. SBR spacer bracers are for structural exterior walls. Both provide bracing along the length of studs and for head-of-wall slip conditions.
