According to recent data, more than 40% of commercial structures now incorporate metal studs. The reason being is that metal studs offer great advantages over traditional wood alternatives.
To start with, the metal is hollowed and weighs less than wood, so it takes up half the space. A benefit that invariably leads to more efficient transportation processes and storage capabilities. The lighter weight makes installation easier too.
Whereas wood can easily attract moisture, metal does not, meaning that rot and mould growth won’t be an issue. And as it’s resistant to moisture, it’s a great option for bathrooms and basements. Metal also won’t warp or twist the way wood does, so it’s an all-round cost-effective alternative that will provide years of reliable service.
As well as being moisture-resistant, metal studs are also impervious to fire, termites, and splitting. They are strong and durable, making them ideally suited to high-wind, coastal areas. And thanks to the consistent quality of our steel frames, scrap is drastically reduced – so it’s an environmentally friendly option too!
Finally, the composition of steel means that metal wall studs can be used to support non-load-bearing walls. This is a straightforward process for our team as Quick Walls has been carrying out this service for many years.
