Drift clip adds strength to window, doorjamb assembly

From: Simpson Strong-Tie

Simpson Strong-Tie unveils its HWDC head-of-wall drift clip connector, designed with a stiffer and stronger cold-formed steel connection while allowing for horizontal and vertical movement during high-wind and seismic events. The HWDC secures the head of a wall to the bottom of a slab or beam and is constructed for multiple anchorage location options to allow screws to be installed closer to the bend in the hardware. The addition of a third anchorage slot to the HWDC also provides a secure installation solution for clips overhanging beam flanges.
