EasyClip™ U-Series™ Clip Angles

used to Secure U-channel to wall studs for lateral bridging

EasyClip™ U-Series™ Clip Angles are used to secure U-channel to wall studs for lateral bridging or for miscellaneous rigid connections.

EasyClip™ U-Series™ clips are prepunched for faster and more accurate fastener placement. U-Series™ clip angles and U-channel should not be used in bridging applications when the stud width exceeds 8".

Installation

 

 

U-Channel is inserted into the stud punchout (as specified by design) and rotated into place.  U-Series clip angles are attached horizontally to the outside or hard side of the cold-formed steel (CFS) framing members. The clip must be firmly seated against the web of the U-channel. The clip should not be more than 1/4" less than the cold-formed framing member. U-Series clips are fastened using #10 minimum self-drilling screws driven through the clip holes into the steel framing. Clips may also be welded to the CFS framing.
