CFS Connector Can Reduce Installation Time

Simpson Strong-Tie’s WBAC wood backing steel connector is designed to reduce installation time in connecting wood backing to cold-formed steel (CFS) studs. Perfect for cabinets, shelves, handrails, and heavy wall hangings, the connector is simple to install and provides tested strength. Pre-punched holes allow the same screw to be used for both wood backing and stud attachment. The connector can accommodate 1¼″ flanges, 1⅝″ flanges, and 2″ flanges. It works for any stud spacing and features sight lines to guide installation alignment.
