Bridging Systems


Bridging systems play a crucial role in steel framework construction by providing additional support and stability to the building structure. These systems are used to connect the primary steel members and act as a secondary load-bearing structure.

Typically made from steel angles or channels, bridging systems are installed between the main steel beams or columns to prevent lateral movement and improve the structural integrity of the building. They also help to distribute loads evenly across the framework, reducing the risk of localized stresses that could cause damage or failure.

Bridging systems are available in various sizes and configurations, depending on the specific requirements of the building design. Some examples include diagonal bridging, X-bracing, and portal frame systems, each of which offers unique benefits in terms of load capacity, stiffness, and ease of installation.
