    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers steel studs, runners (tracks), and bracing or bridging (with a base metal thickness range of not less than 0.0329 in. (0.836 mm)) for screw application of gypsum panel products and metal plaster bases in load-bearing (transverse and axial) construction assemblies. Steel of lesser thickness shall be permitted in additional engineered products.

    1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The SI (metric) values given in parentheses are provided for information purposes only.

    The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test method portion, Section 8, of this specification: This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use.
