Drywall Framing System
ClarkDietrich SD slide 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. SD slide clips are used in by-pass framing situations and are normally welded or otherwise fastened to the vertical leg of a structural angle at the floor or roof edge. Normally a stand-off exists between the structural angle and the inside flange of the curtain-wall stud. This will require the installation of an extra stud piece to bridge the stand-off. In order to avoid the extra installation costs, the ClarkDietrich FastClip™ products are recommended in place of the SD clip.

Position slide clip slot over C-stud flange and return. If a standoff condition between the structural angle and the C-stud exists, a secondary member must be installed as illustrated. Secure the slide clip to the primary building frame with screws, welds or powder-actuated fasteners.
