Bridging Termination Clip (BTC3,BTC4,BTC6)

U-Channel Lateral Bracing Clip

The ClarkDietrich Bridging Termination clip is used to secure U-Channel or Cold Rolled Channel (CRC) to structural wall studs when used in load-bearing or curtain wall applications (loads for structural stud gauges of 20, 18, 16, 14 & 12).

Description

The BTC’s unique design allows for quicker installation in end-of-wall conditions.

The BTC is a stiffened, G90 galvanized steel clip that's tested and designed to facilitate rapid, efficient installation of 1-1/2" U-Channel lateral bracing for exterior curtain wall framing, load-bearing walls or high interior partitions constructed of structural studs.

BTC clips are fastened using #8 self-drilling screws; 2 screws between clip and U-channel and 2 screws between clip and stud flanges. The BTC clips are designed to be used with 3-5/8”, 4” or 6” structural studs only.
