Alternative Seismic Connections

TSN’s new Heavy Duty (HD) clip line for VertiClip® and StiffClip® is engineered to provide a much needed solution to this challenge. VertiClip SLB-HD & StiffClip LB-HD connect curtain wall studs, bypassing the building structures to the concrete deck of the primary structure using concrete anchors by either two ¼” concrete screw anchors or one ½” expansion anchor (for VertiClip SLB- HD). Not only does this meet the seismic building code requirement, but it also eliminates the need for welding, saving you both time and money.

Quality

  • Load-rated positive mechanical attachment at each stud
  • Attaches to structure with concrete anchors when PAF’s are not allowed
  • Utilizes only certified, 50ksi steel
  • Meets all building code criteria

Value

  • Aligns wall studs quickly and easily by accounting for construction tolerances with pre-punched guide holes for attachment
  • Eliminates shims and scabs
