A Partition-Wall Connector That Helps Prevent Drywall Callbacks

Billy Viars of Simpson Strong-Tie Company demonstrates Simpson’s new SDPW Deflector Screw with JLC.

Simpson’s SDPW Screws allow for differential movement between partition top plates and the bottom chord of trusses without damage to the drywall.
