ClarkDietrich Fast Top™ Clips are used in head-of-wall deflection conditions for in-fill curtain-wall assemblies to provide for vertical movement. These clips are used in place of or in combination with deflection track. They provide a positive attachment and do not require bridging installed continuously throughout the upper most punchouts.
The Fast Top™ clip can be attached to the underside of structural members, concrete decks or floor assemblies. Studs must be cut less than full height to enable vertical movement up to 2-1/2" (1-1/4" up and 1/4" down). Fast Top™ Clips install quickly with welds, screws, or powder actuated fasteners. FastClip™ deflection screws are used to attach the clip to the cold-formed framing and to ensure frictionless deflection. These clips are also embossed with fastening patterns to ensure accurate placement of fasteners.
