Standard Specification for Installation of Load Bearing (Transverse and Axial) Steel Studs and Related Accessories


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.


1.1 This specification covers the installation and erection requirements for load bearing (transverse and axial) steel studs and related accessories 0.0329 in. (0.836 mm) to 0.1120 in. (2.845 mm) thick.

1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

1.3 The text of this standard references notes and footnotes which provide explanatory material. These notes and footnotes (excluding those in tables and figures) shall not be considered as requirements of the standard.
