In this paper, we introduce a new class of rings, SB-rings. We establish various properties of this concept. These shows that, in several respects, SB-rings behave like rings satisfying unit 1-stable range. We will give necessary and sufficient conditions under which a semilocal ring is a SB-ring. Furthermore, we extend these results to exchange rings with all primitive factors artinian. For such rings, we observe that the concept of the SB-ring coincides with Goodearl-Menal condition. These also generalize the results of Huh et al., Yu and the author on rings generated by their units.
