The Steel Network TSN VertiClip SLD is a light gauge cold formed steel Framing Connector that connects the drywall studs at the head condition (head 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.
Load-rated positive mechanical attachment at each stud.
UL classified for all approved dynamic assemblies and finish combinations with 1½” deflection and 1-2 hour fire-ratings.
Meets all building code criteria.
Eliminates loose friction-held track assemblies.
Utilizes only mill-certified, 50ksi steel.
Load rated screws provided for each VertiClip.
Step Bushings pre-installed for accurate placement.
Adaptable for multiple configurations.
Top of wall bridging or strapping is eliminated.
Top track lightweight for easy handling. (not a structural element, may be 25ga standard leg - Deep-Leg Track is not required.)
Utilize clips for wall layout.
Eliminates temporary screws.
