VertiTrack® VT, a slotted deflection track improvement allows for vertical movement in interior walls. This unique, patent-pending assembly enables a positive attachment between the track and stud flanges to prevent the transfer of forces into the drywall, which could cause damage and violate the fire rated assemblies.
