Product Details
VertiClip® SLT and SLT(L) Light Steel Framing slide clips connect exterior curtain wall studs, bypassing the building’s structural concrete slab or structural steel frame, while allowing for a vertical deflection of the structure of 1” (½” up and down for SLT) and 1.875” (0.938” up and down for SLT(L)). VertiClip’s unique design provides both an anti-friction and anti-seizure connection between the steel clip and 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 #12 screws for attachment to steel stud (provided by TSN).

VertiClip SLT Features and Value:

• Positive, load-rated, mechanical attachment to stud web
• 97 mil (12 Gauge) material
• Friction-free movement
• Eliminates untested “scabs” or shims
• L•Step Bushings are taped in place at factory for correct placement
•Tested screws provided

Material Composition ASTM A1003/A1003M Structural Grade 50 (340) Type H, ST50H (ST340H): 50ksi (340MPa) minimum yield strength, 65ksi (450MPa) minimum tensile strength, 97mil minimum thickness (12 gauge, 0.1017” 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.
