The Steel Network (TSN)VertiClip SLB is a Light Gauge Cold Form Steel Framing Connector that connects exterior curtain wall studs, bypassing the building slab, 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. Allowable loads are based on use of two #12 screws for attachment to stud (provided by TSN)
VertiClip SLB is classified by multiplying stud depth by 100.
Example: 6" stud = VertiClip SLB600.
VertiClip SLB600 and SLB800 have three slots for greater efficiency with construction tolerances and the third screw, and step bushing is not required unless specified.
Positive, mechanical attachment.
Only mill-certified, 50ksi steel is used.
Step Bushings pre-installed for accurate placement.
Rated screws provided.
Load transferred from stud web.
Elimination of friction-held assemblies.
Meets all building code criteria.
Adaptable for multiple configurations.
Eliminates shims and scabs.
Aligns wall studs quickly and easily by accounting for construction tolerances.
Eliminates bridging or strapping within 12” of connection.
Attaches to structure with PAF or welds.
