WHAT IS AN EQ DRYWALL STUD?
Gauge equivalent drywall framing must meet the minimum performance requirements of conventional drywall framing as defined by the Steel Framing Industry Association (SFIA). The industry's “EQ" product of choice, ProSTUD,® employs roll-forming and steel-making technology, exceeding the performance of conventional drywall framing for allowable moment and screw connection strength. When comparing drywall framing systems, it is important to keep in mind Life Safety, System Performance and Connections. The ProSTUD® Drywall Framing System provides peace of mind for all three important functions by providing the right selection of products and product data for every application.
