The unique shape of ProXHeader is engineered to carry higher load values with less steel. Most wall openings can be supported with a single piece header and for wider openings an insert member is added for additional strength. The patented system utilizes an internal clip that fastens to the vertical Jamb stud(s). The ProXHeader member snaps into place and leaves a flush surface for the application of drywall.
Material and labor costs are sharply reduced and construction productivity is increased. Installation is simplified and can be accomplished with a single framer. As with a traditional built-up box header the need to measure, cut and fit several stud and track components is eliminated. Additionally there is no welding and much less screwing when using ProXHeader.
