StiffClip® JH

StiffClip JH

StiffClip® JH connects floor joists to beams. StiffClip JH resists vertical loads. Design loads consider clip strength only. Size and number of fasteners used is based on fastener manufacturer’s allowable load data.

Value

  • Faster joist installation
  • Guide holes for attachment to beam and screw placement to member (0.172” in diameter)
  • Engineered for steel joist
  • Structurally load tested
  • Eliminates need for joist web stiffener at clip connection

Product Information
StiffClip JH Application

Material Composition

ASTM A1003/A1003M Structural Grade 50 (340) Type H, ST50H (ST340H): 50ksi (340MPa) minimum yield strength, 65ksi (450MPa) minimum tensile strength, with ASTM A653/A653M G90 (Z275) hot dipped galvanized coating.

  1. Attach StiffClip JH to beam with required fasteners. Use blocking behind clip if clip length is less than beam depth.
  2. Place joist on ledge of StiffClip JH and attach clip to joist with required screws.

Nomenclature
StiffClip JH is designated by listing the joist depth in inches, followed by the inside flange dimension in inches x 100 (2” flange is standard, and will also service 1 ⅝” flange), and the required clip thickness in mils that will accommodate anticipated loads.

Example: 6” joist, 2” flange, 2,250 lbs. load
Designate: StiffClip® JH600x200-68

Notes:

  • Screw size and quantity shown is required for JH to serve as web stiffener.
  • Design loads based on clip capacity and allowable shear in joist. Allowable loads have not been increased for wind, seismic, or other factors.
  • If beam web is larger than clip length, use blocking behind clip for support.
  • StiffClip JH resists vertical loads and web crippling.
  • Screws, powder-actuated fasteners, or weld attachment may be used to connect StiffClip JH to the steel header/beam. StiffClip JH 68mil and heavier can be welded to the steel beam. Powder-actuated fasteners into steel are recommended to be 0.157” diameter, and are limited to a maximum of ¾” substrate thick.
