Vertical Deflection Product Line

The VertiClip® product line provides high quality vertical deflection connectors for all light steel framing applications that require a movement allowing connection to the structure. Their 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 or drywall partition framing, which is not engineered to support axial loads.

Quality

  • Load-rated positive mechanical attachment at each stud
  • Attaches to structure with PAF or welds
  • Utilizes only certified, 50ksi steel
  • Meets all building code criteria
  • Friction-free movement with TSN’s Step Bushing Technology®


Value

  • Step Bushings pre-installed for accurate placement 
  • Load rated screws provided for each connection 
  • Eliminates loose friction-held track assemblies and temporary screws 
  • Adaptable for multiple configurations 
  • Eliminates shims and scabs 
  • Aligns wall studs quickly and easily by accounting for construction tolerances 
  • Top of wall bridging or strapping is eliminated
