The R-stud’s design allows builders to deliver higher walls with less material and less deflection. The supplemental flanges every foot increase the strength. A 20-gauge R-stud, 24” O.C. has a limiting wall height of 19.64 vs. a 20-gauge SSMA, 16” O.C. which only has an 18.11’ wall height limit. R-stud delivers higher limiting wall height with fewer studs.

Common Stud Sizes Offered

Additional "Custom" sized studs can be made. Flange widths may be ordered in 1-3/8", 1-1/2", 1-3/4" and 2".

Acoustical tests prove R-stud’s performance to be significantly higher than generic steel studs. R-stud can achieve a 50 Sound Transmission Class (STC) with just one layer of 5/8 inch Type X gypsum on each side, beating generic steel studs by 22 percent
