A steel framed structural stud and track system, suitable for use in construction projects where conventional blockwork might otherwise be considered. The lightweight dry system is fixed between the primary structure members and is located at the slab edge allowing insulation and external cladding to run continuously if desired. Stud sections are screw fixed via the flanges to shallow track floor sections and to deep track head sections. Lateral restraint, blocking and bracing members can be incorporated into the design. Deflection within the building structure is facilitated by a 25–35 mm gap between the stud and the head track, using a Skip-Klip head clip. A number of sill, lintel and jamb configurations are available, to suit various design details. Service slots can be incorporated to allow the passage of services into or through the stud cavity.
