Re: steel stud products

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Some Manufacturers who make steel studs and can be helpful:
        Angeles Metal Systems, Torrance CA
        Dieterich Industires Inc, Pittsburg PA 412-281-2805
        Metal Stud Manufacturer's Association, Chicago IL

Helpful web sites are:
        American Iron and Steel Institute http://www.steel.org
        Light Gage Steel Engineers Association http://www.lgsea.com
        Center for Cold-Formed Steel Structures http://www.umr.edu/~ccfss

If you really want to understand the theory behind the design tables
Cold-Formed Steel Design by Wei-Wen Yu is an excellent text.  

Design Specifications for Light Gage Steel Construction are produced by the
American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI).  The AISI specification is pretty
intimidating without some background information such as the Wei-Wen Yu text.
