SCHA Slide-Clip Connectors

SCHA Slide-Clip Connectors

The Simpson Strong-Tie. SCHA slide-clip connector — 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. Testing shows that anchorage method and placement have significant impact on the buckling capacity of the anchored leg. For this reason, we developed and tested the SCHA connector to accommodate several different anchorage methods to concrete and steel. The connector even features a wider support leg to decrease eccentricity on anchors and provide a variety of anchorage options. The included SCVS slider provides superior rotational support to the vertical leg of the SCHA connector, helping to improve the buckling performance of the anchored leg.
