Technical Data
Installation

Installation

EasyClip S-Series support clips are attached to the cold-formed steel (CFS) framing members using #10 minimum self-drilling screws driven through the clip holes into the steel framing. When not filling all holes, install fasteners symmetrically starting at the top and bottom edges and move toward the center of the clip. Clip can also be welded to the CFS framing. Connections to the building frame can be made with powder-actuated fasteners, drill-in concrete anchors or welding. When using the tabular values for a welded clip, provide a full weld to the structure, top to bottom, along the outside of the clip. A 3/4" minimum weld on the outside edge of the 1-1/2" leg is also required to control warping or to hold the clip in place before final welding.
