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
Not only does the R-stud outperform the generic steel stud on sound transmission, it also excels at thermal performance.   The R-stud allows for 40% less thermal transfer than from a generic steel stud. With more emphasis being placed on building performance, the R-stud provides better R value than its competitors.
R-stud design allows for up to 30 percent savings in labor and materials over a generic steel framing stud. R-stud delivers savings by producing superior strength with 18% less raw material, supplemental flanges and larger openings/portals allow for faster install of utilities that bring down labor costs, and the need to only use one layer of gypsum and still deliver a 50 STC rating
  • Nine inch opening every foot with dual flange for increased strength
  • 40% reduction in thermal bridging
  • Sound transfer only happens here
  • Certified 2012 IBC Compliant
