- DriftCorner® Value
- Material Composition
- Prevents wall separation or collision at building corners during seismic events
- Accommodates orthogonal building drift at corner zones
- Step bushings are all pre-installed
- May be used with a variety of common sheathing components
Attachment of DriftCorner® is made with #8 self-drilling screws. If using gypsum board sheathing, place 1.5” x 9” x 43mil (18ga) angle behind the sheathing on each side of the DriftCorner® to allow for proper screw purchase. TSN will provide the backing angle with DriftCorner® if requested.
Shown below are two detailed examples of DriftCorner® application. More details are available for download at www.steelnetwork.com, including those with the backing angle and with other drift products.
