Bailey PLATINUM™ PLUS STUD
Bailey is pleased to introduce PLATINUM PLUS™ interior drywall framing system. PLATINUM PLUS™products are stronger, hold drywall screws better, and build higher walls. Wall limiting heights and other product qualities meet or exceed Canadian building code and all other applicable standards.
The Bailey PLATINUM PLUS™ steel stud and track system provide maximum fire safety for all your building designs. Tested to both ASTM E119 and CAN/ULC-S101, the fire-test methods and fire-resistance ratings are certified in Canada by our adherence to the acceptance criteria in CAN/ULC-S101.
The building industry measures the sound control that a wall will provide with a rating system called Sound Transmission Classification or S.T.C. This is a measure of the ability for a particular wall to reduce the transmission of airborne sound. The S.T.C. rating is based on tests conducted to industry-recognized ASTM standards. When we compare and rate different materials and assemblies as to how they perform in providing improved sound control, Bailey PLATINUM PLUS™ framing products contribute equal to or better than other 25 gauge framing systems, and generally better than comparable assemblies framed with 20 gauge studs.
Our steel stud has been certified by CSSBI. Learn more about our 3rd party certification here.
