Metal or wood cross bridging


Posts have been removed, please remember our first forum rule; "Users shall treat each other with respect at all times on DIYChatroom.com.

I think you are fine using the metal, rather than wood bridging. Some codes require solid blocking, depends on location. Solid is stronger, by far; http://www.ewpa.com/Archive/2004/jun/Paper_278.pdf

Any other questions we can help you with?

Gary
