Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Douk Light weight and easy to work with.
New to steel wall framing but first time around was able to erect a good section of it.
Very forgiving and easy to nail together with proper nails.
Looks flimsy initially but once you start to put it together and add more parts it gains strength.
I believe once the sheet rock boards get nailed on then the wall becomes sturdy.
Interesting concept vs. wood framing.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 Weak and flimsy-- intentionally
What can I say: if all the existing studs are steel studs you tend stick with steel studs when doing repairs. Easy to work with but they offer only nominal support.I think the original ones in the 80s had a little more beef to them. Cheap in every sense of the word.
Of course what I really want to know is: when I type ALUMINUM into the search field for building materials, why does this show up 4th on the product list? Do they think I dont know what I'm looking for?

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Allen nice product
nice product. good substitute for wood. I am putting a floor on a horse barn that has dirt floor. This is a good substitute for Pressure Treated Wood, although that would be okay too.
