Steeler Slotted Stud™

Build Modern, Efficient Head-of-Wall Systems. A cost-effective alternative to slotted track, the Steeler Slotted Stud is everything you need in a Head-of-Wall system. The Steeler Slotted Stud is innovative and economical, as it can be used in combination with track to form both non-load bearing and wind load-bearing walls. It includes a 2 1/4" slot which allows for up to a 2" vertical deflection and is UL fire rated. Substituting Steeler Slotted Stud in place of slotted track can save your project money while still offering the proper deflection your walls require.
