Product Details
VertiClip® SL light steel framing connector with 3" Slots clips the exterior curtain wall studs at head of wall to the building frame while allowing for vertical deflection of the structure up to 3" (1 ½" up and 1 ½" down). The standard bushing placement is 2" from the top of the slot and allows the structure to settle ½" prior to typical service. VertiClip's deflection clip has a unique light framing steel design, and provides both an anti-friction and anti-seizure connection between the metal clip and the stud web surface thereby preventing a transfer of vertical forces into curtain wall framing, which is not engineered to support axial loads. VertiClip SL is a component in VertiTrack® VTX, TSN's pre-assembled light gauge steel deflection track.

VertiClip SL with 3" Vertical Deflection Features:

• Load-rated positive mechanical attachment at each stud
• Meets all building code criteria
• Eliminates loose friction-held track assemblies.
• Utilizes only certified, 50ksi steel
• Load rated screws provided for each VertiClip
• Meets all building code criteria
• Step Bushings pre-installed for accurate placement
• Adaptable for multiple configurations
• Top of wall bridging or strapping is eliminated.
• Standard top track is lightweight for easy handling.
• Utilizes clips for wall layout.
• Eliminates temporary screws.

Material Composition ASTM A1003/A1003M Structural Grade 50 (340) Type H, ST50H (ST340H): 50ksi (340MPa) minimum yield strength, 65ksi (450MPa) minimum tensile strength, 68mil minimum thickness (14 gauge, 0.0713" design thickness) with ASTM A653/A653M G90 (Z275) hot dipped galvanized coating. The attachment of VertiClip to the primary structure may be made with a PAF or weld and is dependent upon the base material (steel or concrete) and the design configuration
