In structural metal stud framing, the walls and planes are made from cold-formed steel components. The two main parts of a metal stud frame are a stud and a track. Heavy gauge metal studs are used for structural applications, such as external walls, and weight-bearing walls. Lighter gauge metal studs are used for non-load bearing applications including interior walls, half-walls, and partitions.
The methods employed in metal stud framing are similar to those in wood construction. The typical diameters for metal and wood studs are very similar. Metal studs are frequently mechanically attached using screws.
Because they give designers more options for bypass framing, fixed clips are widely used. Deflection connections may be used in areas where seismic activity is a problem. A stud wall can move independently from its substrate thanks to deflection connections. It is common practice to strengthen connections near apertures using stiffener plates.
S Metal Studs are materials mainly composed of steel, which are usually used for wall partitions and secondary walling. S Metal Studs are just the same for ordinary metal stud with main difference in shape.
A s metal stud is a non load bearing wall which can be easily replaced and repaired.
