Slip Clip: S Clip

 sclipProduct Application
VertiClip® SLD connects the interior drywall 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. VertiClip SLD is a component in VertiTrack® VTD, TSN’s pre-assembled deflection track. Allowable loads are based on use of two #8 screws for attachment to stud (provided by TSN).

Material Composition
ASTM A653/A653M, Grade 50 (340), 50ksi (340 MPa) minimum yield strength, 65ksi (450 MPa) minimum tensile strength, G- 60 (Z180) hot-dipped galvanized coating. Material thickness = 33mil (20 gauge, 0.0346” design thickness).

The attachment of VertiClip to the primary structure may be made with a PAF and is dependent upon the base material (steel or concrete) and the design configuration.

An ICC-ES Evaluation Report for VertiClip SLD600 is available.

A Los Angeles Research Report for VertiClip SLD, SL, SLB, SLS, and SLT Series is available. Refer to LARR #25631.

Note:

  • Fasten within ¾” from the angle heel (centerline of the 1½” leg) to minimize eccentric load transfer.
  • Guide holes for attachment to structure are .172” in diameter, and are standard for SLD362 and SLD600.
  • Deflection requirements greater than ¾” (up and down) are available.

VertiClip® SLD series is designed to support horizontal loads and should not be used in axial-load-bearing wall construction.

The VertiTrack® deflection track system is used to connect the interior studs at head of wall 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 clip and the stud web surface, thereby preventing a transfer of vertical forces into drywall partition framing, which is not designed to support axial loads. VertiTrack VTD is composed of VertiClip SLD pre-attached to a top runner track at pre-designated stud spacing.

Material Composition
Track and clip material: ASTM A653/A653M, Grade 50 (340), 50ksi (340 MPa) minimum yield strength, 65ksi (450 vertitrackMPa) minimum tensile strength, (clip); 33ksi (230MPa) minimum yield strength, 45ksi (310 MPa) minimum tensile strength (track); G-60 (Z180) hot-dipped galvanized coating (clip & track). Track leg length = 1½”. Track and clip material thickness = 33mil (20 gauge, 0.0346” design thickness). The attachment of VertiClip to the primary structure may be made with a PAF and is dependent upon the base material (steel or concrete) and the design configuration.

Note:

  • Fasten within ¾” from the angle heel (centerline of the 1½” leg) to minimize eccentric load transfer.
  • Fasten through each VertiClip SLD to structure.

VertiTrack VTD is designed to support horizontal loads, and should not be used in axial-load-bearing walls. VertiTrack VTD is assembled with VertiClip SLD pre-attached at 16” o.c. and 24” o.c. Custom spacing is also available. Screws and step bushings are provided for attachment of VertiClip to the stud web.

Deflection Post

This new product called the D-Flexion Post solves a long-standing problem in a simple, direct way. The problem has been in figuring out how to allow for vertical deflection in a curved wall.

D-Flexion Post is made to work hand in hand with Flex-C Trac, the innovative product that has saved so many framers the headaches that come with framing curved walls.

To build a vertically deflecting curved wall with D-Flexion Post:

First, Form and secure Flex-C Trac in the desired curve.  Second, Insert the D-Flexion Post into a pivot hole ofFlex-C Trac. Use as many Posts as needed for the desired lateral strength of the wall.  Third, After confirming your layout, anchor D-Flexion Post to the top deck using the pre-punched holes in the base plate.  Last, install the wall studs.

D-Flexion Post is made of galvanized steel and will allow 4 inches of total vertical movement.

D-Flexion Post – 16 Ga.
