StudRite® has one of the best strength-to-mass ratios of any stud in the industry. It can be used to frame interior bearing and non-bearing walls, as well as exterior walls without limitations, including low rise bearing, high rise non-bearing and pre-fabricated wall panels.
StudRite® has been tested to ASTM E90 in multiple types of wall assemblies, achieving excellent acoustic ratings. Comparison tests of 6“ StudRite 16 gauge versus conventional 16 gauge stud shows that StudRite has an improved STC rating of 3 points.
The open web design of StudRite® sections reduces conductivity, thereby enhancing thermal efficiency. We compared 6” 16 gauge StudRite® to 6” conventional stud and StudRite® has 15% less heat flow.
Extensive fire tests have been performed at UL laboratories with the StudRite® Wall system classified in 1, 2, 3 & 4 hour non-load bearing assemblies. Additionally, StudRite® is listed in UL V457 for 1, 2 & 3 hour bearing wall, and exterior wall assemblies. See chart below for the full list of non-load bearing assemblies.
