VERTICLIP® SLB – BYPASS SLAB
VertiClip® SLB connects exterior curtain wall studs, bypassing the building structure, while allowing for vertical deflection of the structure up to 2” (1” up and 1” 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. VertiClip SLB eliminates flange-loaded, friction-fit clips, which do not address web-crippling. Three #12 screws for attachment to stud through pre-installed bushings are provided.
