Title (EN) BRACKET FOR INTERCONNECTING A BUILDING STUD TO PRIMARY STRUCTURAL COMPONENTS
(FR) CONSOLE DE FIXATION D'UN POTEAU DE CONSTRUCTION A DES COMPOSANTS DE STRUCTURE PRIMAIRES
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').
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil permettant d'assembler un mur-rideau, lequel est fixé à un plancher à une extrémité, et à une structure primaire à une extrémité opposée de manière coulissante, pour permettre une flexibilité verticale relative en cas de déflexion verticale importante due à une charge. Cet arrangement coulissant confère aux parties du bâtiment une certaine flexibilité sous l'effet du vent, d'une surcharge, de la charge permanente ou de forces sismiques tout en ne causant, pour le mur-rideau, qu'un minimum de dégradation. L'appareil se présente sous la forme d'une console (10) pourvue d'une première plaque (12) destinée à être fixée à la structure primaire (c) et d'une seconde plaque (16) destinée à être montée coulissante sur les poteaux muraux (20). La seconde plaque (16) présente des fentes (18, 18'') orientées verticalement dans chacune desquelles sont fixés un élément de fixation (24) et une entretoise (22).
