JAMSTUD NOMENCLATURE

JAMSTUD BACKGROUND


JamStud is a revolutionary addition to the light gauge steel stud industry, producing significant economies in both design and installation
when compared with conventional C Shaped studs. JamStuds unique configuration delivers increased strength and stiffness, mini-
mizing or eliminating the use of built-up jamb and header sections in a curtain wall assembly. Available in all common wall stud depths,
JamStud streamlines the design and construction process. JamStuds shape is easily differentiated from the typical c-shape, enabling

the selection of the most optimal member sizes to fit project conditions. ASIs complimentary Steel Smart System 5.0 software (page 35)
now includes the complete database of sections to quickly design both JamStud header and jamb members.
Benefits That Add Value:
Performance Improvements
Increases load capacity over a standard C-shaped stud of the same thickness
Reduces overall materials used (single JS from double or triple C-Shape common)
Provides a flat surface for attachment of door or window frame (no additional track required)
No welding or fastening built-up members together
Weight Advantages
Lighter weight results in easier handling
Less weight results in shipping efficiencies
Engineering Advantages:
Increased stiffness for deflection
Simplified jamb and header design
JamStud Increased load capacity enables selection of optimal thickness of curtain wall studs

CURTAIN WALL SYSTEMS DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS
LOAD PATHS
Tracing and verifying load paths through a structure is crucial to protect design
liability. Loads need to migrate from the roof, through the wall and floor systems,

and terminate in the foundation. JamStud transfers out-of plane wind loads from
the header and sill to the primary structural system with a single member,

simplifying the verification process. Use of a VertiClip to accommodate vertical

deflection will connect the JamStud web to the structure and provide a positive,
verifiable connection path.

The optional StiffClip CL or AL at the base of the wall resists web crippling and
delivers an effective load transfer element to the structure.

The images below illustrate the simplicity in tracing a verifiable load path in a wall
opening. Three examples are given. The example on the left shows slab-to-slab
framing, in the middle is a diagram of bypass (balloon) framing, and to the right of

that illustrates the loads at a sill and the bottom end of the JamStud .

SLAB TO SLAB FRAMING BYPASS (BALLOON) FRAMING SILL FRAMING

The largest arrows in each diagram indicate end reactions at the structure, with the medium-sized arrows signifying

the reactions from the header and sill to JamStud . The smallest arrows point to a uniform wind load. A web stiffener is

sometimes required at the top and bottom of the stud and is dependent on the end reactions present. Use of VertiClip

SL at the top and either StiffClip AL or StiffClip CL at the bottom satisfy the web stiffener requirements (if needed).

THERMAL VALUE

JamStud provides an improvement in thermal considerations over built-up sections.

(Air

JamStud reduces the amount of materials used The additional webs in a built-up section
in the jamb, reducing the thermal bridge increases the area of the thermal bridge. In
as well as requiring less insulation. addition, insulation is required inside the cavity
or cavities created in the built-up section.

CURTAIN WALL SYSTEMS DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS
PRIMARY STRUCTURAL DEFLECTION
All structures deflect vertically. To prevent non-axial-load-bearing studs from carrying the weight of the structure and to protect finishes,
vertical deflection connections should be incorporated at the earliest possible moment of project design. The load-carrying capacity
of a steel stud in bending is reduced significantly when adding an axial force propagated by the bending of a primary beam or slab.
VertiClip was developed to prevent the crushing effect on non-axial-load-bearing wall studs. Non-axial-load-bearing wall studs include

exterior curtain wall and interior wall assemblies. When project conditions dictate, lateral drift and vertical deflection may be accommo-
dated through utilization of TSNs DriftClip and DriftTrak lines of connectors.

Vertical Vertical Deflection


Deflection and Lateral Drift

Finished walls frequently experience cracking, buckling, or crushing due to improper isolation of building movement. The movement of
the primary building structure is largely accounted for in horizontal member live loading. In addition to live loads, wind, seismic forces,
moisture content in materials, and temperature cycles all contribute to movement. The incorporation of vertical deflection connections
during the working drawing phase will eliminate the liability of failures and added costs associated with wall system installation.
The VertiClip and DriftClip series of mechanical connectors is a complete solution for all vertical deflection configurations. Substantial
effort has been made to standardize construction practices thus ensuring the positive connections of light steel framing components.
VertiClip has undergone extensive field and independent laboratory testing to achieve a true slip connection solution that isolates all sec-
ondary frame components from loads induced by vertical movement.

An ICC Evaluation Report for VertiClips (refer to ICC-


ESR-1903) and DriftClips (refer to ICC-ESR-2049) at
www.icc-es.org or at www.steelnetwork.com

WALL BRIDGING

As axial compression and lateral wind loads are applied, wall studs react with
weak axis buckling and torsional rotation. To offset these results, a form of
bridging is incorporated into the wall system.

The allowable load capacity of steel studs is dependant upon the presence of
securely-attached wall bridging systems at specific vertical intervals (48" or 60"
o.c.).

Bridging is typically addressed with either a channel running through the stud
punchouts securely fastened to each stud or by flat straps attached to each
stud flange.

TSN provides the industry's most effective bridging methods in BridgeClip ,

BridgeBar , and BC600/800.


More bridging information is found on page 33 of this catalog.

Each VertiClip and DriftClip is delivered to the installer with step bushings pre-installed for

accurate fastener placement. Connection examples shown on this page represent possible
application solutions. Connection use is dependant upon project load requirements. Solu-
tions are found in The Steel Networks Light Steel Framing Connection Catalog. Contact

CURTAIN WALL SYSTEMS DESIGN EXAMPLE
DESIGNING JAMSTUD


JamStud Header

1. BASIS FOR TABLES:



The JamStud allowable heights tables in this catalog cover the following basic load combination for the Allowable Stress Design
(ASD) Method (IBC2006 and ASCE 7-05):
D + WC&C (Strength determination)

WC&C is the Component and Cladding wind load. The Dead Load (D) acting on the stud is assumed minimum
and therefore neglected in the tables.

For the deflection determination, IBC 2003, IBC2006-Sec. 1604.3 and AISI-Wall Stud Design Standard 2004, Sec. B1 allow for a
reduction factor of 0.7 on the Component and Cladding wind load (0.7WC&C).

The JamStud - Allowable Heights tables are based on the following assumptions:
4-Way distribution of lateral wind pressure acting on the opening
Opening height extends from the floor level to the bottom surface of the header
Jamb member supports wind pressure from the opening, wind pressure from half of the distance to the adjacent
stud, and header reaction

The input for the tables includes the JamStud section, opening width (ft.), opening height (ft.) design wind pressure (WC&C, psf),
and specified deflection limit. The output from the tables reflects the allowable JamStud height (ft.-in.) and the controlling
design factor, whether it is deflection or strength ("f" denotes strength, nothing denotes deflection). An * denotes critical web
crippling at support of Jamb. The use of stiffening clips at supports typically eliminates the web crippling condition.

2. DESIGN EXAMPLE
Service (un-factored) Loads:

Wind Pressure (C&C) = 30 psf


Wall Width = 6.0
Wall Height = 14.0 ft. Typical Stud: 600S162-43
Opening Width = 8.0 ft.
Opening Height = 10.0 ft
Stud Spacing = 16 o.c.
Specified Deflection Limit = L/360

Bridging (Lateral Bracing) is recommended at a vertical spacing of 60 o.c. with both JamStud flanges connected to
the sheathing.

CURTAIN WALL SYSTEMS DESIGN EXAMPLE
DESIGNING JAMSTUD

Use the Table:



Go to the "JamStud - Allowable Heights" table with a 6.0 in. stud member, 30 psf wind load, L/360 deflection limit, 8.0 ft. opening width,

and 10.0 ft opening height. Possible JamStud selections from the table for 14.0 ft. height are 600JS250-97 (allowable height = 15 0)
and 600JS350-68 (allowable height = 14 2). The alternative with typical 43mil cee studs results in a built-up section composed of (3)
600S162-43 capped by (2) 600T162-43.

Conclusion:

The second JamStud option, 600JS350-68, is a lighter section with less mil thickness. Use a 600JS350-68 (50ksi) (with design thick-
ness = 0.0566 and Fy = 50 ksi). Allow 2 rows of bridging for the wall (including jamb stud) arranged so that the maximum spacing does
not exceed 60 in. (5 ft.).

3. EXTRA DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS



Strength determination in the "JamStud - Allowable Heights" tables includes checks for bending and shear capacity values
of the stud and a check for lateral end reaction of the stud for web crippling. If the tables indicate a critical web crippling
(denoted with an *), you may use a clip at the top and bottom ends of the stud to eliminate the web crippling condition.

* Web crippling at the ends of the stud is not satisfied per AISI-Wall Stud Design Std. 2004 Sec. C4. Use VertiClip SL and

StiffClip CL or AL at the top and the bottom ends of the stud, respectively, to eliminate web crippling, or refer to TSNs Light Steel
Framing Members Catalog for web crippling load tables.
** The closure track for the window frame attachment was not considered as part of the design cross-section since it does not extend
to the full height of the jamb.

CURTAIN WALL SYSTEMS JAMSTUD ALLOWABLE HEIGHTS

Important Notes
1. No load factor for lateral wind pressure is used for strength determination as per ASD basic load combinations in ASCE 7-05 and
IBC 2006.
2. A load factor of 0.7 for lateral wind pressure is used for deflection determination as per IBC 2006, Sec. 1604.3 and AISI-Wall Stud
Design Std. 2004, Sec. B1 (Except for 5 psf lateral pressure where 1.0 load factor is used).
3. If wind reduction factor for deflection determination is not allowed by a specific building code, multiply table values not denoted by "f"
by 85% to calculate the proper JS allowable height. Table values denoted by "f" are controlled by strength and should not be reduced.
4. "f" denotes limiting wall height is controlled by strength. All other heights are controlled by deflection.
5. "*" denotes critical web crippling at support of Jamb based on AISI-Wall Stud Design Std. 2004 Sec. C4. Use of stiffening clips at
supports eliminate the web crippling condition.
6. Limiting heights are based on continuous support of each flange over
the full length of the stud.
7. Strength determination includes checks for bending and shear
capacity values of the stud through punched section.
8. Values for multi-span and load bearing conditions are available.

CURTAIN WALL SYSTEMS JAMSTUD ALLOWABLE HEIGHTS

Important Notes
1. No load factor for lateral wind pressure is used for strength determination as per ASD basic load combinations in ASCE 7-05 and
IBC 2006.
2. A load factor of 0.7 for lateral wind pressure is used for deflection determination as per IBC 2006, Sec. 1604.3 and AISI-Wall Stud
Design Std. 2004, Sec. B1 (Except for 5 psf lateral pressure where 1.0 load factor is used).
3. If wind reduction factor for deflection determination is not allowed by a specific building code, multiply table values not denoted by "f"
by 85% to calculate the proper JS allowable height. Table values denoted by "f" are controlled by strength and should not be reduced.
4. "f" denotes limiting wall height is controlled by strength. All other heights are controlled by deflection.
5. "*" denotes critical web crippling at support of Jamb based on AISI-Wall Stud Design Std. 2004 Sec. C4. Use of stiffening clips at
supports eliminate the web crippling condition.
6. Limiting heights are based on continuous support of each flange
over the full length of the stud.
7. Strength determination includes checks for bending and shear
capacity values of the stud through punched section.
8. Values for multi-span and load bearing conditions are available.

CURTAIN WALL SYSTEMS JAMSTUD ALLOWABLE HEIGHTS

Important Notes
1. No load factor for lateral wind pressure is used for strength determination as per ASD basic load combinations in ASCE 7-05 and
IBC 2006.
2. A load factor of 0.7 for lateral wind pressure is used for deflection determination as per IBC 2006, Sec. 1604.3 and AISI-Wall Stud
Design Std. 2004, Sec. B1 (Except for 5 psf lateral pressure where 1.0 load factor is used).
3. If wind reduction factor for deflection determination is not allowed by a specific building code, multiply table values not denoted by "f"
by 85% to calculate the proper JS allowable height. Table values denoted by "f" are controlled by strength and should not be reduced.
4. "f" denotes limiting wall height is controlled by strength. All other heights are controlled by deflection.
5. "*" denotes critical web crippling at support of Jamb based on AISI-Wall Stud Design Std. 2004 Sec. C4. Use of stiffening clips at
supports eliminate the web crippling condition.
6. Limiting heights are based on continuous support of each flange
over the full length of the stud.
7. Strength determination includes checks for bending and shear
capacity values of the stud through punched section.
8. Values for multi-span and load bearing conditions are available.

CURTAIN WALL SYSTEMS JAMSTUD ALLOWABLE HEIGHTS

Important Notes
1. No load factor for lateral wind pressure is used for strength determination as per ASD basic load combinations in ASCE 7-05 and
IBC 2006.
2. A load factor of 0.7 for lateral wind pressure is used for deflection determination as per IBC 2006, Sec. 1604.3 and AISI-Wall Stud
Design Std. 2004, Sec. B1 (Except for 5 psf lateral pressure where 1.0 load factor is used).
3. If wind reduction factor for deflection determination is not allowed by a specific building code, multiply table values not denoted by "f"
by 85% to calculate the proper JS allowable height. Table values denoted by "f" are controlled by strength and should not be reduced.
4. "f" denotes limiting wall height is controlled by strength. All other heights are controlled by deflection.
5. "*" denotes critical web crippling at support of Jamb based on AISI-Wall Stud Design Std. 2004 Sec. C4. Use of stiffening clips at
supports eliminate the web crippling condition.
6. Limiting heights are based on continuous support of each flange
over the full length of the stud.
7. Strength determination includes checks for bending and shear
capacity values of the stud through punched section.
8. Values for multi-span and load bearing conditions are available.

CURTAIN WALL SYSTEMS PROJECT EXAMPLES


Use of JamStud as jambs and openings on this 8 story project saved the contractor significant time

and labor expenses. With the high amount of openings (500+) it is easy to see how JamStud posi-

tively benefits installation. Use of JamStud in lieu of built-up jambs and headers cut materials by
over 50% and reduced labor associated with the built-up materials.

Example of a opening made of multiple (S)


section studs. Seven studs and 2 tracks are
utilized in this jamb, creating a significant
increase in both materials and labor costs.
By taking advantage of TSN's free value
engineering service or by utilizing the Quick

Member Selector in Steel Smart System
software (SSS), the design could have been
optimized using far fewer members. A com-
plimentary license of SSS is available at
www.steelsmartsystem.com.

CURTAIN WALL SYSTEMS HEADER/SILL SOLUTIONS
JAMSTUD HEADER/SILL ASSEMBLY VALUE


JamStud delivers exceptional value when
utilized as part of a header or sill assembly.
JamStuds unique shape allows for the design
and construction of a lightweight header versus
the more cumbersome built-up header assem-
JamStud @ Sill
blies. Oriented horizontally, JamStud provides
an increased stiffness and strength compared
with standard cee studs, resulting in lighter
headers which require less labor to install.


JamStud Header

The 7/8 d1 dimension of the JamStud


does accommodate a single #10 or
#12 screw (d= 0.19 or 0.216). Proper
installation is desired to center the screw
within the flat width of dimension d1.

LOAD TRANSFER TO JAMB


The Steel Networks StiffClip AL series represents an ideal
method to transfer loads from the header or sill to the jamb.
Stiffened ribs add strength, and guide holes are provided for

quick and accurate fastener placement. StiffClip AL is
available in 3-5/8, 6" and 8 depths. See TSNs Light Steel
Framing Connections Catalog for allowable load data.

HIGH-WIND-LOAD HEADERS

In high wind and axial load bearing wall applications, JamStud may be placed inside of a deep-leg track to provide a strong labor-efficient

alternative to four-piece Box headers. While the amount of fasteners remains consistent, use of JamStud reduces material handling by

half to streamline the installation process. Load is effectively transferred to the jambs via TSNs StiffClip HE connectors. With the use

of box headers, Jack Studs are also typically used to support the header vertically. The shelf leg of the StiffClip HE supports the header

vertically to eliminate the use of a Jack Stud. In addition, the StiffClip HE provides web crippling resistance for the header.

CURTAIN WALL SYSTEMS HEADER/SILL DESIGN
DESIGNING JAMSTUD


JamStud Header

1. BASIS FOR TABLES:


The JamStud allowable curtain wall header span tables in this catalog cover the following basic load combination for the
Allowable Stress Design (ASD) Method (IBC2006 and ASCE 7-05):

D + WC&C (Strength determination)

Where WC&C is the Component and Cladding wind load. A sheathing dead load (D) of 12 psf acting vertically on the header is
assumed in the tables.

For the deflection determination, IBC 2003, IBC2006-Sec. 1604.3 and AISI-Wall Stud Design Standard 2004, Sec. B1 allow for a
reduction factor of 0.7 on the Component and Cladding wind load (0.7WC&C).

The JamStud - Allowable Header Span tables are based on the following assumptions:

4-Way distribution of lateral wind pressure acting on the opening


Opening height extends from the floor level to the bottom surface of the header
Header supports the wind pressure from the opening, the wind pressure from half of the distance to floor above,
and the vertical dead load from the sheathing above

The Input for the tables are: the JamStud section, the wall height (ft.), the opening height (ft.) design wind pressure (WC&C, psf),

and the specified deflection limit. The output from the tables includes: the allowable JamStud span or opening width (ft.-in.) and
controlling design factor, deflection or strength ("f" denotes strength, nothing denotes deflection).

CURTAIN WALL SYSTEMS HEADER/SILL DESIGN
2. DESIGN EXAMPLE
Service (un-factored) Loads:

Wind Pressure (C&C) = 30 psf


Wall Width = 6.0
Wall Height = 13.0 ft.
Header Span = 9.0 ft.
Opening Height = 10.0 ft.
Specified Deflection Limit = L/360

3. DESIGNING JAMSTUD

Use the Table:



Go to the JamStud - Allowable Header Span table with a 6.0 in. stud member, 30 psf wind load, L/360 deflec-

tion limit, 13.0 ft. wall height and 10.0 ft. opening height. Possible JamStud selections from the table for 9.0 ft.
header span are 600JS250-54 (allowable span = 9 2) and 600JS350-43 (allowable span = 9 5).

Conclusion:
The second option, 600JS350-43, is a lighter section with less mil thickness. Use a 600JS350-43 (with design
thickness = 0.0451 and Fy = 50 ksi).

Important Note:

When ordering the JamStud Header solutions, indicate that the punchouts are not required. Designate JamStud
without punchouts on plans and specify header use when ordering.

CURTAIN WALL SYSTEMS JAMSTUD ALLOWABLE HEADER SPANS

Important Notes
1. A sheathing dead load of 12 psf acting vertically on the header is considered in the calculations.
2. No load factor for lateral wind pressure is used for strength determination as per ASD basic load
combinations in ASCE 7-05 and IBC 2006.
3. A load factor of 0.7 for lateral wind pressure is used for deflection determination as per IBC
2006, Sec. 1604.3 and AISI-Wall Stud Design Std. 2004, Sec. B1 (Except for 5psf lateral pressure
where 1.0 load factor is used.)
4. "f" denotes limiting header span is controlled by strength. All other spans are controlled by deflection.
5. If wind reduction factor for deflection determination is not allowed by a specific building code, multiply table
values not denoted by f by 85% to calculate the proper JS header span. Table values denoted by f are
controlled by strength and should not be reduced.
6. Header is assumed to be connected to jamb member through a stiffening clip to eliminate a web crippling
condition.
7. Limiting header spans are based on continuous support of each flange over the full length of the member.
8. Strength determination includes checks for bending and shear capacity values of the header.
9. Designate JamStud without punchouts on drawings when utilized for header applications.

CURTAIN WALL SYSTEMS JAMSTUD ALLOWABLE HEADER SPANS

Important Notes
1. A sheathing dead load of 12 psf acting vertically on the header is considered in the calculations.
2. No load factor for lateral wind pressure is used for strength determination as per ASD basic load
combinations in ASCE 7-05 and IBC 2006.
3. A load factor of 0.7 for lateral wind pressure is used for deflection determination as per IBC
2006, Sec. 1604.3 and AISI-Wall Stud Design Std. 2004, Sec. B1 (Except for 5psf lateral
pressure where 1.0 load factor is used.)
4. "f" denotes limiting header span is controlled by strength. All other spans are controlled by deflection.
5. If wind reduction factor for deflection determination is not allowed by a specific building code, multiply table
values not denoted by f by 85% to calculate the proper JS header span. Table values denoted by f are
controlled by strength and should not be reduced.
6. Header is assumed to be connected to jamb member through a stiffening clip to eliminate a web crippling
condition.
7. Limiting header spans are based on continuous support of each flange over the full length of the member.
8. Strength determination includes checks for bending and shear capacity values of the header.
9. Designate JamStud without punchouts on drawings when utilized for header applications.

CURTAIN WALL SYSTEMS JAMSTUD ALLOWABLE HEADER SPANS

Important Notes
1. A sheathing dead load of 12 psf acting vertically on the header is considered in the calculations.
2. No load factor for lateral wind pressure is used for strength determination as per ASD basic load
combinations in ASCE 7-05 and IBC 2006.
3. A load factor of 0.7 for lateral wind pressure is used for deflection determination as per IBC
2006, Sec. 1604.3 and AISI-Wall Stud Design Std. 2004, Sec. B1 (Except for 5psf lateral
pressure where 1.0 load factor is used.)
4. "f" denotes limiting header span is controlled by strength. All other spans are controlled by deflection.
5. If wind reduction factor for deflection determination is not allowed by a specific building code, multiply table
values not denoted by f by 85% to calculate the proper JS header span. Table values denoted by f are
controlled by strength and should not be reduced.
6. Header is assumed to be connected to jamb member through a stiffening clip to eliminate a web crippling
condition.
7. Limiting header spans are based on continuous support of each flange over the full length of the member.
8. Strength determination includes checks for bending and shear capacity values of the header.
9. Designate JamStud without punchouts on drawings when utilized for header applications.

CURTAIN WALL SYSTEMS JAMSTUD ALLOWABLE HEADER SPANS

Important Notes
1. A sheathing dead load of 12 psf acting vertically on the header is considered in the calculations.
2. No load factor for lateral wind pressure is used for strength determination as per ASD basic load
combinations in ASCE 7-05 and IBC 2006.
3. A load factor of 0.7 for lateral wind pressure is used for deflection determination as per IBC
2006, Sec. 1604.3 and AISI-Wall Stud Design Std. 2004, Sec. B1 (Except for 5psf lateral
pressure where 1.0 load factor is used.)
4. "f" denotes limiting header span is controlled by strength. All other spans are controlled by deflection.
5. If wind reduction factor for deflection determination is not allowed by a specific building code, multiply table
values not denoted by f by 85% to calculate the proper JS header span. Table values denoted by f are
controlled by strength and should not be reduced.
6. Header is assumed to be connected to jamb member through a stiffening clip to eliminate a web crippling
condition.
7. Limiting header spans are based on continuous support of each flange over the full length of the member.
8. Strength determination includes checks for bending and shear capacity values of the header.
9. Designate JamStud without punchouts on drawings when utilized for header applications.

CURTAIN WALL SYSTEMS JAMSTUD ALLOWABLE HEADER SPANS

Important Notes
1. A sheathing dead load of 12 psf acting vertically on the header is considered in the calculations.
2. No load factor for lateral wind pressure is used for strength determination as per ASD basic load
combinations in ASCE 7-05 and IBC 2006.
3. A load factor of 0.7 for lateral wind pressure is used for deflection determination as per IBC
2006, Sec. 1604.3 and AISI-Wall Stud Design Std. 2004, Sec. B1 (Except for 5psf lateral
pressure where 1.0 load factor is used.)
4. "f" denotes limiting header span is controlled by strength. All other spans are controlled by deflection.
5. If wind reduction factor for deflection determination is not allowed by a specific building code, multiply table
values not denoted by f by 85% to calculate the proper JS header span. Table values denoted by f are
controlled by strength and should not be reduced.
6. Header is assumed to be connected to jamb member through a stiffening clip to eliminate a web crippling
condition.
7. Limiting header spans are based on continuous support of each flange over the full length of the member.
8. Strength determination includes checks for bending and shear capacity values of the header.
9. Designate JamStud without punchouts on drawings when utilized for header applications.

CURTAIN WALL SYSTEMS JAMSTUD ALLOWABLE HEADER SPANS

Important Notes
1. A sheathing dead load of 12 psf acting vertically on the header is considered in the calculations.
2. No load factor for lateral wind pressure is used for strength determination as per ASD basic load
combinations in ASCE 7-05 and IBC 2006.
3. A load factor of 0.7 for lateral wind pressure is used for deflection determination as per IBC
2006, Sec. 1604.3 and AISI-Wall Stud Design Std. 2004, Sec. B1 (Except for 5psf lateral
pressure where 1.0 load factor is used.)
4. "f" denotes limiting header span is controlled by strength. All other spans are controlled by deflection.
5. If wind reduction factor for deflection determination is not allowed by a specific building code, multiply table
values not denoted by f by 85% to calculate the proper JS header span. Table values denoted by f are
controlled by strength and should not be reduced.
6. Header is assumed to be connected to jamb member through a stiffening clip to eliminate a web crippling
condition.
7. Limiting header spans are based on continuous support of each flange over the full length of the member.
8. Strength determination includes checks for bending and shear capacity values of the header.
9. Designate JamStud without punchouts on drawings when utilized for header applications.

CURTAIN WALL SYSTEMS JAMSTUD ALLOWABLE HEADER SPANS

Important Notes
1. A sheathing dead load of 12 psf acting vertically on the header is considered in the calculations.
2. No load factor for lateral wind pressure is used for strength determination as per ASD basic load
combinations in ASCE 7-05 and IBC 2006.
3. A load factor of 0.7 for lateral wind pressure is used for deflection determination as per IBC
2006, Sec. 1604.3 and AISI-Wall Stud Design Std. 2004, Sec. B1 (Except for 5psf lateral
pressure where 1.0 load factor is used.)
4. "f" denotes limiting header span is controlled by strength. All other spans are controlled by deflection.
5. If wind reduction factor for deflection determination is not allowed by a specific building code, multiply table
values not denoted by f by 85% to calculate the proper JS header span. Table values denoted by f are
controlled by strength and should not be reduced.
6. Header is assumed to be connected to jamb member through a stiffening clip to eliminate a web crippling
condition.
7. Limiting header spans are based on continuous support of each flange over the full length of the member.
8. Strength determination includes checks for bending and shear capacity values of the header.
9. Designate JamStud without punchouts on drawings when utilized for header applications.

CURTAIN WALL SYSTEMS CONNECTIONS
PRIMARY STRUCTURAL DEFLECTION
All structures deflect vertically. To prevent non-axial-load-bearing studs from carrying the weight of the structure and to protect finishes, vertical deflec-
tion connections should be incorporated at the earliest possible moment of project design. The load-carrying capacity of a steel stud in bending is

reduced significantly when adding an axial force propagated by the bending of a primary beam or slab. VertiClip was developed to prevent the crush-
ing effect on non-axial-load-bearing wall studs. Non-axial-load-bearing wall studs include exterior curtain wall and interior wall assemblies. When project

conditions dictate, lateral drift and vertical deflection may be accommodated through utilization of TSNs DriftClip and DriftTrak lines of connectors.
Finished walls frequently experience cracking, buckling, or crushing due to improp-
er isolation of building movement. The movement of the primary building struc-
ture is largely accounted for in horizontal member live loading. In addition to live
loads, wind, seismic forces, moisture content in materials, and temperature cycles
all contribute to movement. The incorporation of vertical deflection connections
during the working drawing phase will eliminate the liability of failures and added
costs associated with wall system installation. The VertiClip and DriftClip series of
mechanical connectors is a complete solution for all vertical deflection configura-
tions. Substantial effort has been made to standardize construction practices thus
ensuring the positive connections of light steel framing components. VertiClip has
undergone extensive field and independent laboratory testing to achieve a true
slip connection solution that isolates all secondary frame components from loads
induced by vertical movement.

90% of failures begin at connections.


Why take chances?
Pictured are two curtain wall bypass ap-
plications, with the left picture showing

TSN's VertiClip SLB connecting studs to
the structure, and on the right is a slotted
angle and one screw attaching to the stud.

VertiClip SLB is manufactured from 50ksi,
G-90, stiffened 14ga steel material and
contains pre-installed step bushings in
slots to offset the screw attachment to the
stud, allowing for free structural move-
ment. The material composition of the clip
at right is unclear, and the load capacity is
significantly lower with only one screw and
a flat steel plate. In addition, there is noth-
ing to offset the screw attachment from the
stud, resulting in a rigid attachment. Some
movement may then be allowed by backing
the screw out a distance, but when that happens, allowable load calculations are rendered useless, as screw values depend on a firmly-seated screw.

Specifying TSN's VertiClip , VertiTrack , DriftClip , or DriftTrak eliminates the use of untested scrap angles and protects liability.

CURTAIN WALL SYSTEMS BRIDGING
BRIDGING BACKGROUND
Bridging for load bearing studs is needed to resist the following forces:
1 - Weak axis buckling induced by axial compression load.
2 - Torsion induced by wind load.
AISI Wall Stud Design Standard (2004), referenced by 2006 IBC; or AISI-NAS Specification (2007) provides the load and stiffness
requirements for bracing members due to the effects of axial compression load and wind load as given in the table below. Contact TSN
Technical Support (888) 474-4876 if further information is needed regarding wall bridging design.

As lateral wind loads are applied, wall


studs react with torsional rotation. To
offset these forces, a form of bridging is
incorporated into the wall system.

BRIDGING REQUIREMENTS
Load Capacity:
Twist Load PL = 1.5 x Wind Load x Bridging Spacing x Stud Spacing x m(Shear Center Distance) / Stud Depth.
WIND
Twist Moment M1 = PL x Stud Depth.

Products in this catalog are designed and manufactured for the specific purposes shown, and should not be used in other applications unless approved
by a qualified design professional. All modifications to products or changes in installation procedures should be made by a qualified design professional.
The performance of such modified products or altered installation procedures is the sole responsibility of the design professional or installation contractor.
The installation contractor and/or qualified design professional are responsible for installing all products in accordance with relevant specifications and

in part by non-standard or modified products or installation procedures.
Loads in this catalog are for the described specific applications of properly installed products. Modifications to TSN products, improper loading or instal-
lation procedures, or deviations from recommended applications will affect TSN products' load-carrying capacities. TSN products are fabricated from hot-
dipped galvanized steel for corrosion protection but will corrode and lose load-carrying capacity if exposed to salt air, corrosive fire-retardant chemicals,
fertilizers, pressure treated wood or other substances that may adversely affect steel or its galvanized coating. This document edition reflects changes
in the allowable loads and configurations of some of TSN's products. This information supercedes information in earlier documents or technical reports.
All earlier documents or technical reports should be discarded and reference made exclusively to this May 2009 edition. TSN may correct any clerical or
typographical errors. All sales are subject to TSN's standard terms and conditions of sale.

exemplary, incidental, special, consequential, or punitive damages, or other losses or damages however caused, including, but not limited to, instal-
lation costs, lost revenue or lost profits. TSN's liability for damages shall in no event exceed the applicable portion of the purchase price for defective
product(s).
Product defects that arise from acts of God, accidents, misuse, misapplication, improper installation, storage damage, negligence, or modification to

TSN, including but not limited to incorrect specifications such as incorrect dimensions, designs and/or loads, are also specifically excluded from this war-
ranty. TSN does not authorize any person or party to assume or create for it any other obligation or liability in connection with Products except as set
