CULLEN OW-CLIP FOR MULTIPLE JOIST CONNECTIONS

Culllen OW-clip multiple joist connector

The OW-Clip enables the connection of 2-ply joists allowing them to act as a single unit. 2-ply joists are typically used around openings where greater stiffness is required for oncoming loads such as trimmed joists.

It is essential that the correct connection detail is used to ensure this unit acts as one, rather than two halves moving against each other, which can cause excessive deflection in the floor.

OW-CLIP BENEFITS & FEATURES
  • One part can be used for all joist depths and widths
  • Flared end for ease of install
  • Visible connections to verify compliance

For full technical and installation details consult the Cullen website or ‘The Cullen Connection’ technical guide.

For your information we have included a short animation showing the installation of the OW-CLIP. If in doubt please consult the technical guide or contact the Cullen technical department.
