Product Description

BlazeFrame RipTRAK is a deflection track with an offset shoulder that represents the thickness of the gypsum board (5/8" or 1-1/4”). A second piece of gypsum board (wall cladding strips) is fit flush to the underside of the slab (w/sealant) or to a fluted deck (without castle cuts & sealant), and is then fastened to the shoulder. This allows the roof/floor assembly and the BlazeFrame RipTRAK to move in relation to the wall assembly. This also allows the wall cladding strips (the rip board) that is attached to the BlazeFrame RipTRAK to slide over the primary wall assembly. The BlazeFrame RipTRAK is the only UL tested fire-rated head of wall joint system that offers an alternate listing by eliminating castle cuts and sealant. If RipTRAK Clips (RTC) are required for your BlazeFrame RipTRAK installation to meet allowable loads, they are attached to both inside bottom legs of the BlazeFrame RipTRAK with two #8 by 1/2" (13mm) long steel self-drilling framing screws and engage the short flange of the studs. This reinforces any stud to track connection while allowing deflection. RipTRAK Clip 20ga is recommended for drywall studs. RipTRAK Clip 16ga is recommended for structural studs.
