Re: LGSS - Light Gauge Steel Stud question

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Dennis,
 
I'm no expert in light gauge but here are my thoughts if they are not too
late. Screw the exterior finish to the header webs at intervals equivalent to
required stiffener spacing. Screw a continuous 16 ga. plate at the inside
header web same as the other side. I think these materials are adequate
stiffeners.
