Manufacturer's Product Description

Product Application
DriftClip
DSLB is available to accommodate vertical deflection and lateral drift requirements. Step Bushings pre-installed in vertical slots allow up to 2” vertical deflection (1” up and down). Horizontal slots accommodate 2” lateral drift (1” left and right--in-plane), with Step Bushings also pre-installed during the manufacturing process. Load tables are provided for attachment to stud. If more than 2” lateral drift is required, contact TSN engineering for more information.
Material Composition
Steel: ASTM A653/A653M, Grade 50 (340), 50ksi (340MPa) minimum yield strength, 65ksi (450MPa) minimum tensile strength, G-90 (Z275) hot-dipped galvanized coating.
Standard DSLB thickness is 97mil (0.1017” design thickness). The attachment of DriftClip to the primary structure is dependent upon the base material (steel or concrete) and the design configuration, and is the responsibility of the Structural Engineer of Record.
