I am detailing an interior partition inside a pre-engineered metal building. The partition is metal stud and extends all the way up to the roof. I have 2 conditions, one where the partition is perpendicular to the roof zee purlins and the other where the partition is parallel to the zee purlins. The partition is very tall, 26 feet unbraced height, due to the span of the building and the gable roof slope. It is a non-bearing partition and I would like to keep it that way. To do this I need to design a vertical sliding connection at the top so that the wall is not loaded when the rigid frame or the roof purlins deflect. The vertical slide needs to be quite large, in the order of 2 - 3 inches at the ridge line. Has anybody developed a good way of detailing a vertical slide connection for a metal stud wall partition application such as this? __________________________________________________ Richard Lewis, P.E.
