Web Stiffener


OEG Web Stiffener is a structural component, used to provide reinforcement in the web of joists to resist web crippling at critical load points. Providing Web Stiffener to joists can increase the load capacity of the joist. The number of web stiffeners and the spacing between them depend upon each specific design requirements.

Web stiffener should be installed by sliding them in from the end of the joist. Forcing stiffeners directly in-between the flanges of the joist can damage the flange.
