Specifying the Right Framing Connectors for Deflection

When it comes to deflection, the performance of the connections between the cold-formed steel framing and the building structure is critically important, especially in coastal and high-seismic zones where structures face greater risk of movement, stress, and loading from natural events like earthquakes and high-velocity winds. Our technical expert, Chuck Webb, PE, CSI, CDT, provides an overview of this topic in the recent issue of Construction Specifier.
