Product Details
The VertiClip® SLS steel slide clip connects exterior curtain wall studs, bypassing the building’s structural frame, while allowing for a vertical deflection of the structure up to 1½” (¾” up and ¾” down). VertiClip’s unique design provides both an anti-friction and anti-seizure connection between the steel slide clip and the metal stud web surface thereby preventing a transfer of vertical forces into curtain wall framing, which is not engineered to support axial loads. Allowable loads are based on use of two #12 screws for attachment to metal framing stud (provided by TSN).

VertiClip SLS Features:

• Provides a positive, load-rated, mechanical attachment to web of stud
• Eliminates friction-based assemblies
• Utilizes only certified, 50ksi steel
• Eliminates untested “scabs” or shims
• Load rated screws provided
• Step Bushings pre-installed for accurate placement
• Meets all building code criteria
• Adaptable for multiple configurations

• Align wall studs quickly and easily by accounting for construction tolerances
• Lightweight assembly
• Eliminates bridging or strapping within 12” of connection

Material Composition ASTM A1003/A1003M Structural Grade 50 (340) Type H, ST50H (ST340H): 50ksi (340 MPa) minimum yield strength, 65ksi (450 MPa) 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 PAFs, screw/bolt anchors or weld and is dependent upon the base material (steel or concrete) and the design configuration.

Nomenclature: VertiClip SLS is designated by stud depth and clip length required. Clip length includes a minimum of 3" for steel (5.5" for concrete) of clip material for attachment to structure added to stud depth, plus the distance of the stud from the structure. Example: 6" stud, 6" tolerance, 3" to structure Designate: VertiClip® SLS600-15 * Use of strengthening ribs and return bends varies with each clip.
