Title: (EN) Bracket for interconnecting a building stud to primary structural componen ts
Abstract:
(EN) Apparatus for assembling a curtain wall, which is anchored at one end to a floor, at an opposite end to a primary structure in a sliding relation thereto in order to allow relative vertical flexibility in case of severe vertical deflection due to loading. This sliding relation permits the building sections to move under wind, live load, dead load or seismic forces with a minimum of damage transferred to the curtain wall. The apparatus is a bracket (10) with a first plate (12) for mounting to the primary structure (c) and a second plate (16) for mounting in sliding relation to the wall studs (20). The second plate (16) is formed with slots (18, 18'') which are vertically oriented, and a fastener (24) with a spacer (22) are fastened through each slot (18, 18').
