Verticalclip SLD Interior Head Of Wall
VertiClip® SLD connects metal studs at the head condition (top of wall) to the deck or primary frame while allowing for a total vertical deflection of up to 1½” (¾” up and ¾” 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 drywall partition wall framing, which is not designed to support axial loads.
ASTM A1003/A1003M Structural Grade 50 (340) Type H, ST50H (ST340H): 50ksi (340MPa) minimum yield strength, 65ksi (450MPa) minimum tensile strength, 33mil minimum thickness (20 gauge, 0.0346” design thickness) with ASTM A653/A653M G60 (Z180) 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.
