Tech Note W103-23: Design of By-Pass Slip Connectors in Cold-Formed Steel Construction


This Tech Note Updates and Replaces Tech Note W103-11

Summary: A curtain wall can be defined as a non-vertically loaded exterior wall (aside from self weight) supported by the primary structural frame of the building. When it comes to cold-formed steel framing, this definition can encompass a great many possible assemblies and applications. This Tech Note discusses the various structural elements of a curtain wall system and introduces the subjects of Design Loads and Framing Analysis.

Disclaimer: Designs cited herein are not intended to preclude the use of other materials, assemblies, structures or designs when these other designs demonstrate equivalent performance for the intended use. CFSEI documents are not intended to exclude the use and implementation of any other design or construction technique.
