The variable length studs

Deflection (TLD) and Elevator (TLE) are two piece components which allow for the telescoping feature unique to TRAKLOC. The two piece components arrive pre-assembled to help speed assembly. The installer simply inserts the top end of the stud in the top track and then extends the stud (telescoping) to the proper length to engage the bottom end of the stud in the bottom track.



The TRAKLOC deflection stud (TLD) extension insert has slots cut out of the flanges.  This allows the drywall screw to pass through the drywall and the outer portion of the stud while passing through the slot. The slot allows the drywall to be attached while still allowing for seismic and/or live-load induced inter-floor deflection at the head-of-wall joint.
