What We Do & Who We Are

About Our Product

Our New U.S. patented X bridging system for floors and flat roofs will help improve the distribution of loads throughout the entire floor.

This one-piece system is connected by a rivet that assembles the two pieces of single bridging through a slide slot system that self-aligns and self-adjusts to variances of on center dimension. EZ-X Bridging will replace the 1×3 boards that have a habit of splitting, expanding and contracting during different types of weather conditions, and the interference of knots in the wood strip during nailing that limits their strength capability.

Our steel bridging system is installed to joists by (4) #8-1¼” long coarse threaded drywall screws for excellent hold down power. Just snap a line and go! No need for eight nails the old way. EZ-X Bridging is available in 16″ on center and proudly made here in the USA. 🇺🇸
