VTX deflection track connects exterior curtain wall studs at head of wall to the building frame while allowing for vertical deflection of the structure of up to 1½ (¾ up and ¾ down). A
is pre-assembled at 16o.c. or 24o.c. (or any pre-required stud spacing). VertiClips unique design provides both an anti-friction and anti-seizure connection between the clip and the stud web surface thereby preventing a transfer
of vertical forces into curtain wall framing, which is not engineered to support axial loads. Use of VertiTrack VTX over friction- fit track assemblies minimizes liability through the utilization of positive mechanical attachments to the web of the stud.
Attach VertiTrack VTX to deck with an engineered connection through each VertiClip SL. Connect stud to VertiTrack with provided screws through Step Bushings.
