A great alternative to traditional wood framing is using metal studs. Armstrong has simplified this process even further with their QuikStix drywall framing system.
On display at the 2010 Builders’ Show, this system is intended for use building walls, ceilings and soffits. It has a “twist-click-lock” feature that makes installation much less time consuming and easier than ever. The skill level involved with setting this up ranges from contractor to skilled DIYer.
This product is made from over 30% recycled steel and will not support mold or mildew and will not warp or twist like wood can.
