The Heavy-Duty VertiClip® SLB-HD connects exterior curtain wall studs, bypassing the building structure 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-HD eliminates flange-loaded, friction-fit clips, which do not address web crippling. Allowable loads are based on three #12 screws for attachment to the stud (provided by TSN). The SLB-HD allows clip connection to the concrete deck of the primary structure using concrete anchors, either two ¼” concrete screw anchors, or one ½” expansion anchor for applications that do not allow PAF’s.
