Drywall Framing System
It’s a real challenge these days meeting head-of-wall codes for fire stop and life safety issues while maintaining the ability to absorb vertical movement in low-, mid- and highrise buildings. Brady's SLP-TRK* slotted track is the solution.
Brady's SLP-TRK® slotted track provides a positive attachment for overall strength and allows for vertical movement caused by normal head-of-wall and floor extension or compression. SLP-TRK® slotted track smoothly integrates with a variety of wall installation systems and is extremely user-friendly as well as economical. The simple design and easy installation reduces the cost of materials and labor. And the installer can use the head-of-wall systems he prefers to work with.
SLP-TRK® slotted track systems comply with the toughest code requirements in North America, if not the world. It has been tested with a variety of leading fire-stop products and has outperformed the requirements of stringent fire and hose stream testing of ASTM E 119 and ASTM E 814. SLP-TRK has also met and exceeded the latest seismic cycling standards found in UL2079 and ASTM E 1966.

SLP-TRK® slotted track is installed directly to the slab or corrugated metal roof deck using #10 sheet metal screws, Tapcon** concrete screws or power-driven fasteners. Fasteners must be placed at 8" or 12" intervals depending on the flute intervals of the metal decking material. Studs must be cut 3/4" shorter than floor-to-ceiling height to allow for ceiling deflection. Studs are attached to the track through the midpoint of flange slots using #8 self-tapping wafer-head screws on each side of the stud.
