Manufacturer's Product Description

DSLD is available to accommodate interior head of wall 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.
