Simpson Strong-Tie now offers a slide-clip connector that provides an easier way to attach bypass framing anchors to concrete and steel. The Simpson Strong-Tie® SCHA slide-clip connector is an ideal solution for panelized or stick-frame construction where cold-formed steel bypass framing anchors to the top of a floor slab or the bottom flange of a steel beam.
The SCHA slide-clip connector comes with pre-punched holes for 1/4"-diameter Titen HD® concrete screw anchors or 0.157” PDPAT pins, eliminating the need for pre-drilling and helping to ensure accurate anchor placement every time. The connector was developed and tested to accommodate different methods of anchoring concrete and steel.
Other key features of the SCHA slide-clip connector include a flexible design that allows either face of anchorage leg to be used against support, and a connector that provides a full 1" of upward and downward movement. It can be used with 3 5/8", 4", 6" and 8" studs and tabulated design values for anchorage help mitigate risk and provide ease of specification.
