Manufacturer's Product Description

The StiffClip
LB series connects exterior wall studs to the building’s structure through a unique design incorporating the use of stiffened legs of a 90o angle to increase bending strength. StiffClip LB resists horizontal and vertical loads. The allowable design load table shown below is based on the use of StiffClip LB as it is attached to various steel stud depths, material thicknesses and yield strengths. Design loads consider loads on the clip and #12 screw fasteners to the stud web. Pre-drilled guide holes in each leg allow for greater installation efficiency.
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. Material thickness: 68mil (14ga, .0713” design thickness).
The attachment of StiffClip to the structure may be made with either a PAF or weld and is dependent upon base material properties and the design configuration.
Allowable load tables incorporate eccentric loading of fasteners. Values with a welded connection may increase.
Note:
For PAF’s, fasten within ¾” from the angle heel centerline of the ½” leg.
Guide holes for attachment to structure are .172” in diameter, and are standard for LB362, LB600, and LB800
