E-Studs are tiny starting studs that are utilized in the Shaftwall system. In the slots between the flanges are panels used for fire and acoustic ratings.
E Stud is made of hot-dipped steel that has a minimum G40 coating and complies with ASTM A653. G60 coating is available upon special request, although it can come at an additional option with a longer lead time.
Used as a crucial component of USG ME Shaftwall systems in multi-story structures to block continuous fire escape routes. Together with USG ME CH Stud and related J Runner, this stud is used. Together, they make it possible to install a system in its entirety from one side of the shaft, fully doing away with the requirement for scaffolding.
