Thanks. I called a few numbers but my suppliers are closed for the day. I hope i can get 30'ers. I need this job to keep my guys going straight through the winter. Lot of steel for sure. I havent done any metal framing in 12 years. It will be nice to get to put the tool belt on and start acting like a carpenter for a week or so.http://www.imperialgroup.ca/userfiles/file/Building Products Catalogue.pdf
There's a little more info in there.
It says sizes are available up to 20'
And also says "Other sizes, lengths and gauges available on request."
There's a number you can call at the bottom, I'm sure they can answer some questions for you.
I was on a crew once and they wanted to see 100 ft. of wall of day, but the walls were 14', and certainly weren't long straight runs either. Doors, blocking for fastening to pan deck, laying out plates, running to get shot for the Hilti, headers for duct-work, etc. I think it all varies according to how complicated it is.I have a question,,, how many sq.ft. OR lin.ft. of metal stud framing should a man get done in one day? 10 ft tall walls.
i just fished up my rough layout. Top and bottom track 6". then 18 gauge 30' x 6". At the 15 ft mark I will use cold bar and clips. Then expansion joints every 30'. I still have to get everything approved but I think its pretty much cut and dry. I aint messing around on this one for the taping. 14 footers and butts boards.:thumbsup: This is my first bid with metal framing so i may have some more questions. Thanks for all the helpBoco, on a wall that tall be sure to use a least a 4" deep top track, to allow for movement in the roof assembly. They may call for a 6" track as the retail stores we do have to allow for 3" of deflection in the bar joists. Sounds like a fun job, hope you had a good new years. Enjoy.
