HORIZONTAL FLANGE ATTACHMENT (HFA CLIP)
Horizontal Flange Attachment (HFA Clip)
The Bailey HFA Clip is a low cost method to accommodate the vertical deflection in exterior by-pass curtain wall conditions.
• Allows for vertical movement of the structure independent from the exterior curtain wall framing.
• Eliminates the need for mechanical fastening between the clip and the steel stud.
• If the design requires a stand-off distance, an additional steel stud should be used to eliminate the stand-off and establish the connection.
Connect the Bailey HFA Clip to the steel stud flange, and then attach to the building structure adequately using suitable screws, PAF or welds as per the engineer of record, designs and shop drawings. If a stand-off situation exists between the studs and the structure, use an additional stud to bridge the distance.
