New UL Testing Reveals ClarkDietrich Product as Sole Option for Head of Wall Joint Systems

January 2021

A new UL testing report shows that fire-rated head-of-wall framing projects that utilize ClarkDietrich’s trusted BlazeFrame® RipTRAK™ just got easier. The UL testing has provided a revised installation method for BlazeFrame RipTRAK in fluted deck assemblies that removes the need for sealant and castle-cutting the board, and requires only mineral wool in the flutes of the deck. BlazeFrame RipTRAK is the only UL fire-rated head of wall joint system to meet the new test standard.
