STC/STCT/DTC Roof Truss Clips

169f-2015

For alignment control between a roof truss and nonbearing walls; the 1 1/2″ slot permits vertical truss chord movement when loads are applied.

Material: 18 gauge

Finish: Galvanized

Installation:

  • Use all specified fasteners; see General Notes.
  • Use STC or DTC depending on required loads. STC, installed with Drywall Stop (DS), helps prevent fasteners tearing through the ceiling sheetrock (see illustration).
  • Use STCT where truss or rafter is separated from the top plate of the nonbearing wall.
  • Install slot nails in the middle of the slot.
  • Products not intended for floor applications due to the frequency of floor joist deflections and potential for squeaks.
