STIFFCLIP® CL-Floor Tie
The StiffClip® CL series’ unique design allows for the connection of steel studs to the building’s structure by incorporating stiffened legs of a 900 angle to increase bending strength. StiffClip CL resists vertical, horizontal, and torsional loads. The allowable design load table is based on the use of StiffClip as it is attached to various steel stud wall material thicknesses and yield strengths. Allowable loads consider loads on the clip and screw fasteners to the stud web. Pre-drilled holes for attachments to both deck and stud provide installers with increased efficiency. The designed attachment of StiffClip to the primary structure is dependent upon the base material’s properties (e.g. steel or concrete) and the design configuration.
