Deflection Track Systems

ProSTUD® Deep Leg Deflection Track Systems

Head-of-wall vertical deep leg deflection track systems are required to allow the top of the wall stud to float within the top track legs. This connection allows for vertical live load movement of the primary structure without transferring axial loads to the interior drywall studs. A gap (determined by the Engineer of Record) is required between the top of the wall stud and the deflection track.

ProSTUD Drywall Framing studs can be used with multiple Deep Leg Track Systems:
