how thick steel angle ok for self tapping screws?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

How thick of a steel angle can #10 or #12 self-tapping screws be connected to?  I have normally seen people use powder driven fasteners for connecting stud clips to steel angles but have recently seen a detail using self-tapping screws.  It seems like it would be pretty labor intensive screwing deflection clips to a ¼” steel angle.

 

Thanks.
