This specification covers the installation and erection requirements for load bearing (transverse and axial) steel studs and related accessories. Materials requirements for framing members, zinc-rich paint, steel drill screws, and power actuated drive pins are also covered in this specification. Products shall be protected from adverse weather and job site conditions that will cause any physical damage. Materials shall be stored on a flat plane, and any damaged materials shall be removed from the job site immediately. Materials fastening, attachment, and tolerances shall conform to the requirements covered in this specification. Methods of material construction shall be either stick built or panelized. For panelized construction, panels shall be designed to resist all construction and handling loads as well as live loads. Handling and lifting of prefabricated panels shall not cause permanent distortion in any member or collateral material, and all stud-to-track connections shall be installed prior to hoisting the panel. Attachment of the panel to the structure shall be as shown on the design drawings, and all panels shall be aligned to provide continuity of any wall/floor surface. For stick built (non-panelized) members, tracks shall be aligned accurately at supporting structure and shall be fastened to the structure. Track intersections shall butt evenly, and doors, windows, and other items installed in the wall shall be securely anchored to the wall by means of clips, angles, screws, bolts, etc.
