Metal stud framing can be used for a number of different applications. Most commonly, it is used for commercial type structures on interior and exterior walls, ceilings, domes, barrel vaults, wall furring, and curved walls. Metal studs can be used for structural or non-structural framing using different widths and thicknesses (or gauges). The benefit of using metal stud framing is that the end product is precise, straight, and plumb. Metal studs do not warp or twist as wood studs can and there is minimal waste. They are fire, mold, and termite resistant and are made from recycled steel.
