Product Details
Light gauge steel Deflection Clip VertiClip SLB Features:

• Load transferred from stud web
• Eliminates bridging or strapping within 12” of connection
• Eliminates flange-loaded, friction-fit clips, which do not address web-crippling
• Allows up to 2” vertical deflection (1” up and 1” down)
• VertiClip SLB is minimum 14 ga (68 mil) while competitors are 16 ga (54 mil), making it the strongest bypass clip on the market!

VertiClip® SLB Light Gauge Steel Connector is used to connect exterior curtain wall metal studs, bypassing the building structure, while allowing for vertical deflection of the structure up to 2” (1” up and 1” down). VertiClip’s unique design provides both an anti-friction and anti-seizure connection between the steel clip and the stud web surface thereby preventing a transfer of vertical forces into curtain wall steel framing, which is not engineered to support axial loads. VertiClip SLB Bypass Steel Clip eliminates flange-loaded, friction-fit clips, which do not address web-crippling. Allowable loads are based on use of two #12 screws for attachment to stud (#12 screws provided with order).

Material Composition
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, screw/bolt anchors or weld and is dependent upon the base material (steel or concrete) and the design configuration.

Installation
1. Place VertiClip® angle against structural pour stop. 2. Attach SLB to structure with required fasteners. 3. Fasten SLB to stud with provided screws through Step Bushings.
Order Information
Nomenclature VertiClip SLB is designated by type (SLB), followed by stud depth in inches multiplied by 100. Example: 6" stud Designate: VertiClip® SLB600 * Use of strengthening ribs and return bends varies with each clip. ** The VertiClip SLB600-10, 600-12, 800-10 and 800-12 accommodate an even greater construction tolerance of studs from structure. The VertiClip SLBxxx-10 is 10" in depth and the VertiClip SLBxxx-12 is 12" in depth with slot spacings designed for a 6" or 8" stud
Allowable Loads
Notes: Allowable load tables incorporate eccentric loading of fasteners. Values with welded connection may increase. Fasten within ¾" from the angle heel (centerline of the 1½" leg) to minimize eccentric load transfer. Fasteners attaching clip to structure should be installed symmetrically around the center line of the clip. The allowable load of the clip may be reduced if fasteners are not installed symmetrically. Guide holes in the 1½" leg measure 0.172" in diameter for SLB362, 0.141" in diameter for SLB600 and SLB800. Total vertical deflection of up to 2" (1" up and 1" down). Deflection requirements greater than 1" up and down are available. VertiClip SLB series is designed to support horizontal loads and should not be used in axial-load-bearing wall construction. Allowable loads have not been increased for wind, seismic, or other factors. #12 screws are provided with each step bushing. Load requirements don't always justify use of a third screw. Three slots are standard in 6" and higher web depths to accommodate construction tolerances. Use of a 3rd screw and bushing is dependent upon load configuration. 250 and 362/400 sizes have only 2 slots and 2 screws. Use of strengthening ribs and return bends varies with each clip. 1 For LRFD Design Strengths refer to ICC-ESR-2049. Load Direction
