SC32-5/97-KT25 Bypass Framing Slide-Clip Connector Kit
Ideal for high-seismic areas, Simpson Strong-Tie SC connectors are the optimal solution for slide-clip bypass framing. SC clips are often welded to the structure in high-seismic zones, but they also feature anchorage holes so that concrete screws or powder-actuated fasteners can be used to attach the clip to the structure. In addition to anchorage versatility, the SC clips include "No-Equal" stamps at the center of the slots to ensure proper shouldered screw placement. SC connectors are manufactured using heavy-duty 10- and 12-gauge steel to provide exceptional resistance to in-plane seismic load.
The clips come in lengths of 3 1/2", 6" and 8" for use with 3 5/8", 6" and 8" studs, respectively
The maximum standoff distance is 1" for 3 5/8" studs and 1 1/2" for 6"and 8" studs
Provides a full 3/4" of both upward and downward deflection
Embossments in the bend line provide increased strength and stiffness in the F1 and F2 load directions, but are positioned towards the center of the clip so that 1 1/2"-long welds can be applied at the top and bottom of the clip
Prepunched large-diameter anchor holes accommodate 1/4"-diameter concrete screws like the Simpson Strong-Tie Titen HD
Prepunched small-diameter anchor holes accommodate powder-actuated fasteners like the 0.157"-diameter Simpson Strong-Tie PDPAT or the #12 self-drilling Simpson Strong-Tie Strong-Drive XL Large-Head Metal screw
Precision-manufactured shouldered screws, provided with SC connectors, are designed to prevent overdriving and to ensure the clip functions properly
Use the specified type and number of anchors.
Use the specified number of XLSH78B1414 #14 shouldered screws (included). Install the screws in the slots adjacent to the "No-Equal" stamps.
Use one shouldered screw per slot (maximum).
