When all the D clips 7 have been set over the inter sections and welded in place, the inside metal wall struc ture is set in place. The inside wall sections are what might be termed triple channels. They have two narrow channels 12 and a midchannel 13 about twice the width This invention relates to metal walls, particularly insu lated steel walls built up out of sheet metal sections and straps which we call horizontal girts. The channel sec of the narrow channels. The narrow channels face toward one and the midchannel faces away from one. At one side the sections have a looped ?ange 14 and the other tions, which form the inside sheetingr of the walls, are side a plain ?ange 15. These can be hooked together as put together successively after the ?berglass insulation shown in Fig. 10. The hanger clips 16 are hooked over 20 has been placed in the channels formed by the outside the girts, the deep recess 19 straddling the girt.

The setup of the inside to the 16 or 18 gauge metal in the outside metal channel wall, section for section, then goes on until it has all been sections. These D clips are are welded above and below completed. The inside channel sections rest upon the the girts which each D clip bridges to hold the girts in ?oor or upon ?oor molding. The hangers do not support place on the ribs. This D clip and this method of secur them on the girts, but simply tie them to the girts. ing the girts in place is a great improvement over welding What I claim is: the heavy girt stock to the ribs or securing the girts to 1.

These clips distribute the rality of channel sections of sheet metal, each with a plain weight of the horizontal girts over a greater area of the outside Wall structure. These clips are so designed as to allow for vertical and horizontal expansion of the build ing steel and metal wall. The clips have holes which are ?ange on one edge and a doubled back ?ange on the other edge, said sections being hooked together with said plain ?anges engaged within said double back ?anges to form vertical ribs, a plurality of girts of thicker metal extending horizontally across and abutting said vertical ribs, a plu rality of sheet metal clips supporting each of said girts, each of said clips including a pair of channel portions connected by a girt-embracing bridge portion and said further apart than the width of the horizontal girt, there by after welding at the holes reinforcing the ribs and allowing for greater welding area.
