metal work

METALWORK

Steel stud framing, channels and tracks offer a solid yet lightweight framework which can be easily insulated. The metalwork stocked meets fire regulations and are laser cut to the millimetre for precision when you need it.

Often a preferred alternative to timber, metalwork remains straight and strong providing a longer lifetime, less wastage and less time on site.

When using performance plasterboard such as fire board or thermal board, 70mm studding is recommended due to the weight of the board.
