Using Steel Studs: Metal Stud Framing.

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

  • They are perfectly straight as compared to wood.
  • They don’t shrink or split with time.
  • Light and easy to store.
  • Resistant to rot, insects and fire.
  • Versatile to make different gypsum designs.
  • Quicker to install and equally strong

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.
