Code Compliance

  • AISI North American Specification [NASPEC] S100-07 with 2010 supplement
  • IBC 2006, 2009 & 2012 Compliant
  • Gross properties are based on the full section away from flange slots
  • Net area is based on the section through the flange slots
  • Weight is nominal weight of the gross section, not reduced for flange slots
  • For effective flange widths, the compression flange (before local buckling) is taken as the portion of the flange between the web and the slot (the slot and any steel beyond the slot is considered absent)
  • The tension flange is taken as the net flange at the slots
  • Cold-work of forming has not been considered for effective properties
  • Multiple UL Head of Wall Deflection System Ratings
  • Telling Slotted Track can be substituted in place of any UL Wall Design utilizing 0.030” or thicker Slotted Track
  • Telling Slotted Track can used for Studs with a web of 2.5” to 8.0”. Telling Slotted Track can not be used in a UL firewall design for walls constructed with 1-5/8” web studs, nor 10”, 12”, 14”, 16” web studs
  • The Wall design must use Gypsum and not alternative wallboard materials
