Flex-C Header - Flexible Structural Framing

Flex-C Header - Flexible Structural Framing

The flexible radius header can be shaped by hand to form a curve or S-shape. Once the header is in the desired curvature, it is locked in place by screws or nails and is ready for installation. Its unique construction makes it much lighter and easier to install than conventionally made curved headers. The header is available in 2" x 4", 2" x 6" sizes for wood framing, and in 3-5/8" and 6" widths for steel framing.

Flex-C Header - Easily secured by means of self-tapping screws

Using the Flex-C Plate system technology, the Flex-C Header is pre assembled and easy to install. Pivotal sections make it easy to shape Flex-C Header by hand. The pivotal sections are easily secured by means of self-tapping screws (included).
