TELLING® C-T Shaftwall Framing Components
The two primary framing components in Shaftwall framing is the liner board and C-T Studs and J tracks, manufactured by TELLING® Industries from galvanized steel that meets the requirements of ASTM A 653 and A 924.
The 2-1/2” steel framing system retains the popular 3-1/2” wall thickness with a two-hour fire rating to accommodate standard door framing dimensions. The 2-1/2” stud provides a 1-1/2” air cavity for services. Studs are friction-fitted between top and bottom J- tracks. Use J tracks for all closure details, including duct and door openings, abutments, intersections, etc. No other special metal components are required.
The data relating to fire- and sound-tested assemblies is based on the characteristics, properties and performance of materials and systems obtained under controlled test conditions as set forth under the appropriate ASTM standard, such as E 119 (fire),E 90 (sound) or E 72 (structural).
Engineered for durability, our systems withstand the air-pressure surges of high-speed elevators as well as the lateral impact of stairway doors.
