StiffClip® HC

StiffClip HC

StiffClip® HC connects roof joist framing members to the hip beam. Design loads consider loads on the clip only. Number of fasteners used is based on fastener manufacturer’s allowable load data. Standard angle bend is 135o. Other angle shapes are available.

Value

  • Guide holes for attachment to framing members (.172” in diameter)
  • Engineered for steel members
  • Structurally load tested
  • Meets all building code criteria

Nomenclature

StiffClip HC is designated by multiplying joist depth by 100, then listing material thickness.

Example: 6" stud depth, 68mil steel thickness
Designate: StiffClip® HC600-68

* Standard angle bend is 135°. Other angle shapes are available.

Notes:

  • Number of fasteners used is based on fastener manufacturer's allowable load data.
  • Allowable loads have not been increased for wind, seismic, or other factors.
  • All guide holes may not require fasteners. Fastener amount determined by designer.
  • Torsional effects are considered on screw groups for F3 allowable loads. It is assumed that half of the torsional moment is taken by the connection to the structure and half is taken by the connection to the stud.
  • Design loads consider loads on the clip only.
