StiffClip® JC series Steel Joist Clip connects floor joists to beams and other structural components while resisting vertical loads. Pre-drilled guide holes and a support flange streamline installation. The allowable load tables shown below are based on use of StiffClip JC attached to various joist thicknesses and yield strengths with #12 Screws. The attachment to the beam or structure must be designed to be greater than or equivalent to the joist attachment.
StiffClip JC is designated by listing the joist depth in inches, followed by the required clip thickness in mils that will accommodate anticipated loads. (see technical sheet for load tables)
Example: 6" joist, 3,000 lbs. load
Designate: StiffClip® JC600-68
