ClarkDietrich announced the launch of its Pony Wall, a new partial wall framing connection that helps eliminate on-site fabrication and load-size guesswork. As the latest addition to ClarkDietrich’s Clip Express, the Pony Wall is designed to support out-of-plane loading of cantilevered partial wall systems that are unsupported at the top track.  Out-of-plane loads are transferred to the floor system through the base-plate, which is welded to the Pony Wall stud member.


“We’re extremely excited to introduce the ClarkDietrich Pony Wall connector to the market, as it’s a product that will change the way contractors approach constructing partial wall assemblies,” said Brett Hironimus, Clip Express Sales Manager, ClarkDietrich. “It’s the perfect solution to help contractors save time and labor on the jobsite, plus it has the versatility to be used across several applications in addition to wall systems, like parapets and ribbon windows.”


ClarkDietrich Pony Wall has been extensively tested and meets all applicable ASTM standards for cold-formed steel framing members, providing quality assurances that are unavailable with locally-welded clips and connectors. The product is also available in three different size options including 24”, 36” and 48” to accommodate various project dimensions.
