VertiClip SL Exterior Head of Wall by TSN

VertiClip® SL connects the exterior curtain wall studs at the head of wall to the building frame while allowing for vertical deflection of the structure up to 1½” (¾” up and 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. Use of VertiClip SL over friction-fit track assemblies helps protect liability through the utilization of positive mechanical attachments to the web of the stud. VertiClip SL is a component of VertiTrack® VTX, our pre-assembled deflection track

View more information on allowable loads, on the product data sheet. Allowable loads are based on the use of two #12 screws for attachment to stud (provided by TSN).

To designate the proper clip on drawings, multiply stud depth by 100. VertiClip SL is sized to match stud depth.

Example: 6” stud. Designate SL600.
