Verticalclip SLB Interior Bypass Slab
VertiClip® SLB connects exterior curtain wall 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 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 SLB eliminates flange-loaded, friction-fit clips, which do not address web-crippling. Three #12 screws for attachment to stud through pre-installed bushings are provided.
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.
