Deflection Drift Angle
US Patent #8,595,999 B1 (Deflection Drift Angle) is a composite steel angle with intumescent tape factory applied to the inside leg of the steel angle. The DDA is a fire-rated accessory that when combined with slotted or deep leg track will offer 2” unencumbered movement at the head-of-wall joint in accordance with UL-2079 “Test for Fire Resistance of Building Joint Systems”. The 2-1/2” outside leg marked for proper identification. The section is fabricated from minimum 0.018-inch thick hot-dipped red galvanized steel complying with ASTM A653 having minimum G-40 coating. This product comes in two main variants; DDA and DDA-1.
FAS Track 1000 is a slotted deflection track that offers fire and air (smoke) protection, eliminating the need for fire and sound sealant. The section is fabricated from hot-dipped galvanized steel complying with ASTM A653, and ASTM A1003 Grade 33 Type H for 33 ksi yield strength steel for 20 gauge (33 mils) with a minimum G40 coating complying with ASTM A924, and 18 gauge (43 mils) with a minimum G60 coating complying with ASTM A924; and Grade 50 Type H for 50 ksi yield strength steel for 16 gauge (54 mils) with a minimum G60 coating complying with ASTM A924. FAS Track 1000 has been tested with Underwritten Laboratories in accordance with UL 2079.
HOT ROD Type-X is a compressible intumescent firestopping that provides 1 and 2 hour fire-ratings for both dynamic and static joints according to UL-2079 5th edition (for both standard walls and shaft walls) and is sound tested according to ASTM E90, tested up to a STC 68.
