VertiClip® SLT and SLT(L) slide clips connect exterior curtain wall studs, bypassing 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 stud 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 also available in lengths of 12”, 15”, and 18”
Determine the length by adding stud + offset + 3” (for steel, or 5.5” for concrete) and selecting the next largest size.
