SDPW Deflector screws from Simpson Strong-Tie

The new Strong-Drive SDPW Deflector line of fasteners is designed to connect non-load-bearing, full-height partition wall top plates to trusses or joists while allowing for vertical movement without associated connector squeaks. Simpson Strong-Tie says the SDPW screws create a strong connection that provides both lateral resistance and the ability for walls to deflect with the truss or joist. Atmospheric and loading conditions can put a variety of forces on a structure, and the SDPW permits vertical movement on the wall to prevent squeaks associated with alternative hardware solutions. Available in 3-1/2″, 5″ and 6″ lengths, SDPW Deflector screws allow contractors to manage up to a 3/4″ gap (using the 3-1/2″ screw) or a 1-1/2″ gap (using 5″ or 6″ screws) between the top plate assembly and the joist or truss. In addition, the included offset driver bit installs the screw with the polymer sleeve 3/4″ to allow for upward and downward deflection. Available with an 18″ bit extension for easier overhead installations (sold separately). strongtie.com/sdpw
