As the supply of quality timber diminishes, steel studs and rails will replace wood even more in construction. Gypsum board in Kenya has become a more economical construction material.
Advantages of Steel Studs & Rails over timber
When installing gypsum, the rails are screwed to the walls or floors of your room to support the studs which then form a grid to support your gypsum board. Use the wafer-head self-tapping screws to join together the studs and the rails.
The gypsum boards are then screwed on the metal stud grid using bugle head drywall screws.
