The Steel Network (TSN) VertiClip® SLS is a light steel framing connectors that connects exterior curtain wall studs, bypassing the building’s structural frame, 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 curtainwall framing, which is not engineered to support axial loads. Allowable loads are based on use of two #12 screws for attachment to stud (provided by TSN).
Provides a positive, load-rated, mechanical attachment to web of stud.
Eliminates friction-based assemblies.
Utilizes only mill-certified, 50ksi steel.
Eliminates untested “scabs” or shims.
Load rated screws provided.
Step Bushings pre-installed for accurate placement.
Meets all building code criteria.
Adaptable for multiple configurations.
Align wall studs quickly and easily by accounting for construction tolerances.
No “scabs” or shims.
Eliminates bridging or strapping within 12” of connection.
* Use with either 3 5/8” or 4” studs
