The ViperStud® Framing System from TELLING is available in a variety of web sizes and gauges. Our interior stud & track, as well as our angles, are knurled on the flanges. This knurling offers speedy metal-to-metal and sheeting attachments and helps prevent screws riding or walking. We also have the ability to provide custom lengths, special packaging and markings upon request. Whatever the application, TELLING and ViperStud® have the right framing for the job.
