Vertical and lateral building movement up to 2"
ClarkDietrich Drift FastClip™ Slide Clip 68mils (14ga) is used to attach exterior curtain-wall studs to the building structure and provide for both vertical and lateral movement. Also available in 97mils (12ga). FastClip Deflection Screws are provided with each clip for attachment to the wall studs and allow for 2" vertical deflection (1" up and down) to ensure friction-free sliding. Step bushing are provided for the connection to the structure and allow for 2" lateral deflection (1" left and right).

To attach the clip to the cold-formed steel framing, two, three or four FastClip deflection screws (based upon clip size), shall be driven through the slotted holes and positioned to allow for the appropriate building deflection. Attachment to the primary structure can be made with screws, or bolt anchors. Structure attachments shall be driven through the drift bushings and the Drift FastClip™ - centered in the drift slots.
Drift FastClip™ bushing and deflection screws
Step bushing are provided for the connection to the structure and allow for 2" lateral deflection (1" left and right).
ClarkDietrich deflection clips include our proprietary FastClip fastener that has been specifically designed to provide friction-free deflection. These fasteners eliminate drag, binding or resistance that can often occur with common fasteners.
