Light-Gauge Framing

Simpson Strong-Tie launches new product line for cold-formed steel

Simpson Strong-Tie has developed a new line of connectors for use with curtainwall, steel-stud framing. The new line of slide and fixed-clip connectors has been engineered and tested to eliminate time-consuming calculations required of designers. The Simpson Strong-Tie pre-engineered connectors accommodate many different bypass framing applications in stand-offs as large as 11 1/4 inches. For deflections greater than one inch, or stand-offs greater than 11 1/4-inch, Simpson Strong-Tie can provide custom clips to suit most framing needs.
