Sliding connection at top of internal stud partition

Sliding connection at top of internal stud partition

Hi All,

I have an internal stud partition that I want to disconnect in plane as it is not capable of the required drift. The partition would need to be restrained out of plane still.

Has anyone got a typical detail that they use to do this. I expect it to be relatively simple, cut the top of the partition and place angles/timbers either side of the partition to restrain it in plane.

Would be thankful if someone has a tidy detail. Also, the roof above is timber joists with t & g sheathing.

Check your Simpson catalogue and look for DTC clips.
