RT series secures and ties down roof framing members. StiffClips unique shape incorporates stiffened legs to increase compressive strength and resist horizontal, lateral, and uplift loads. The allowable design load table shown is based on the use of StiffClip as it is attached to various steel stud material thicknesses and yield strengths. Design loads consider loads on the clip and the use of #12 screw fasteners relative to the framing material.
ASTM A653/A653M, Grade 50 (340), 50ksi (340MPa) minimum yield strength, 65ksi (450MPa) minimum tensile strength, G-90 (Z275) hot-dipped galvanized coating.
StiffClip RT Nomenclature StiffClip RT650 is 6½ long, and may be used when wall studs do not align with roof framing member. The RT1300 is 13 long, and is used when wall studs align with roof framing member. Clips are designated by length, followed by thickness and number of screws used in each leg (determined by load requirements).
