Bailey structural studs and tracks are used for floor and ceiling joists, axial load-bearing walls and curtain walls.  Load-bearing members start at a thickness of 33mils (20ga) and can be as thick as 97mils (12ga).  Lightweight, cold-formed galvanized steel load-bearing studs are available in a selection of sizes, flanges, gauges and yield strengths to obtain optimal performance.  Structural stud and track selection is based on the loads they will be required to carry as well as the wall and floor thicknesses specified in the building design.  To determine which structural members meet specific load requirements, consult with a Bailey Metal Technical Representative.
