The Steel Network (TSN) VertiClip SLT and SLT(L) slide clips connect exterior curtain wall studs, by passing the building’s structural concrete slab or structural steel frame, while allowing for a vertical deflection of the structure of 1” (½” up and down for SLT) and 1.875” (0.938” up and down for SLT(L)). VertiClip’s unique design provides both an anti-friction and anti-seizure connection between the clip and studs web surface thereby preventing a transfer of vertical forces into curtain wall framing, which is not engineered to support axial loads. Allowable loads are based on the use of #12 screws for attachment to stud (provided by TSN).
VertiClip SLT is available in a length of 9 ½”.
VertiClip SLT(L) is available in lengths of 12”, 15”, and 18”.
Determine length by adding stud + offset + 3” (for steel, or 5.5” for concrete) and selecting the next largest size.
Positive, load-rated, mechanical attachment to stud web.
97 mil (12 Gauge) material.
