Drywall Framing System
ClarkDietrich FastClip™ Slide Clip deflection clips are used to attach exterior curtain-wall studs to the building structure and provide for vertical building movement independent of the cold-formed steel framing. A FastClip deflection clip installs quickly with screws or powder-actuated fasteners, and provides adjustable standoff to ensure a plumb wall plane. FastClip Deflection Screws are provided with each clip to ensure friction-free sliding. Each clip is also embossed with fastening patterns to ensure accurate placement of fasteners.
Meets ICC ESR-2570 in compliance with the 2012 International Building Code® (IBC) and International Residential Code® (IRC), as well as the 2010 California and Florida Building Code.

Connections to the building can be made with screws, powder-actuated fasteners or drill-in concrete anchors. Mechanical fasteners shall be located on the embossed marks given on the scored line of the 1.5" flange. Two or three FastClip™ Deflection Screws (based upon clip size) are used to attach the clip to the cold-formed steel framing. Screws shall be driven through the slotted holes and positioned to allow for the appropriate building deflection.
Many of the ClarkDietrich deflection clips include our proprietary FastClip fastener that has been specifically designed to provide friction-free deflection. These fasteners eliminate drag, binding or resistance that can often occur with common fasteners.
