how to

USE

this

MANUAL
Yield Strength, Fy/(PSI or KSI)
Yield strength is the property by which the strength of steel is typically defined. Dietrich products are manufactured with steel having a yield point of 33 KSI for all gauges. 50 KSI is available in 16, 14 and 12 gauge and must be specified when ordering. KSI is short for kips per square inch. One kip is equal to 1,000 pounds.

This catalog is designed to help you select the right products or systems for your construction applications. It is the most comprehensive manual in the industry. This catalog is divided into ten major sections that are color coded for easy reference. A comprehensive index is also located at the back of the catalog for your convenience. Each product page includes an extensive product overview, benefits, features and product and application renderings. Reference charts contain size availability and packaging information. Each chart also includes metric sizing for your convenience. Structural properties and load tables are not included in this catalog, but are available in the Dietrich Metal Framing™ Technical Design Guide. The design guide includes physical and structural properties, axial-load, allowable height and joist span tables. The Technical Design Guide is available on our website at www.dietrichmetalframing.com. The publication is also available from your Dietrich sales representative or by contacting your nearest sales office.

Protective Coating
Non-structural products have a protective corrosion resistant galvanized coating conforming to ASTM Specification A 1003 – G-40 minimum coating weight or have a protective coating with an equivalent corrosion resistance. This coating weight is in accordance with the industry standard requirements of ASTM C 645. Structural products have a protective corrosion resistant galvanized coating conforming to ASTM Specification A 1003 – G-60 minimum coating weight or have a protective coating with an equivalent corrosion resistance. This coating weight is in accordance with the industry standard requirements of ASTM C 955. A G-90 coating weight is available on a special order basis and must be specified at the time of ordering. A G-90 coating is not considered an industry standard and may result in additional cost and extended delivery times.

Product Codes/Designators
Each Dietrich product or system component is identified by a 3-or 4-digit alphanumeric code for ease of ordering. Corresponding SSMA member designator, where applicable, is also provided for easy reference. The Steel Stud Manufacturers Association (SSMA) has established industry standard nomenclature for steel framing members and components. The SSMA reference is identified by an easy-to-understand alphanumeric code. The alpha designation is S, T, U, or F, where S = stud or joist, T = track, U = cold rolled channel, and F = furring channel. Product identification is simplified with the SSMA standard member designation. While the letters define the section type, the numbers identify web depth, flange width and minimum steel thickness as shown in the following example. Dietrich products meet or exceed all SSMA requirements. Care should be taken, however, when substituting mateWeb rials in place of Dietrich Metal Framing. There is a misconception within the construction industry regarding the substitution of one manufacturer’s products or materials for those of another manufacturer. The assumption is that Flange all studs of a given size and steel thickness are inter400 S137-33 changeable. It may be possible that the substitution can Web Size: 400 = 4" safely be made, but the decision should not be made until Member Type: S = Stud or Joist the structural properties of the products or materials Flange Width: 137 = 1-3/8" (1.37") Min. Steel Thickness in mils: 33 = .0329" involved are compared by a qualified engineer.

Product Labeling
Skids are clearly identified with master skid labels that display product, gauge, size, length, piece count, yield strength and any special skid markings specified at the time of order. Individual ink jet labeling (including company name, product, size, length, gauge, coating and yield strength) or embossing is also provided on many of our structural framing members. UPC bar coding is also available for certain products.

WARNING: Handling of this product
without the proper use of hand and eye protection may result in injury.

Steel Thickness (Gauge)
The steel thickness of a product or component is referenced in terms of gauge or mils. The thickness or gauge is a key contributor to the strength of the product.

Note: All products comply with ASTM standards and Federal specifications as shown in Certification of Materials in the back of this catalog. Minimum thickness is 95% of the design thickness per AISI code. The trend today is to refer to steel thickness in terms of “mil” rather than “gauge”. This catalog includes both for ease of use. One mil is equivalent to 1/1000, (.001) of an inch. The mil thickness measures the uncoated base metal material. A 20-gauge stud measuring the minimum uncoated base metal at 0.030 inches is “30 mils thick”.

the

BENEFITS
of

STEEL BUILD with
What about Rust?
■ Steel framing members in wall cavities, attic spaces or crawl spaces that are not exposed to water will last over 300 years, per a study conducted in England. ■ Forensic studies recently conducted on Oahu residences built over 40 years ago showed steel wall studs with no visible signs of corrosion. ■ Zinc coating protects steel by providing a physical barrier as well as cathodic protection to the underlying steel. When the base is exposed, such as at a cut or scratch, the steel is cathodically protected by the sacrificial corrosion of the zinc coating adjacent to the steel.

Superior and Uniform Quality
■ Steel is roll formed into precise, uniform shapes with exacting tolerances for consistent material quality. There is no need for sorting (culling) or special handling to inspect for crown. ■ Steel studs are straight. They don’t warp, twist, bow, split or have knots, which means straight walls, square corners and doors and windows that open and close properly. ■ Steel is dimensionally stable and won’t shrink like wood, eliminating nail popping, wall cracking or floor squeaking. ■ Steel does not rot, promote mold or mildew and is impermeable to termites, vermin and insects.

High Strength/Light Weight/Versatile
■ Steel has one of the highest strength-to-weight ratios of any building material. ■ Because of its strength, steel can mean fewer framing members with wider on-center spacing, reducing material and labor costs. ■ Steel framing can weigh substantially less when compared to traditional building materials like masonry and concrete systems. ■ Light-gauge framing can reach spans far greater than traditional or engineered lumber, providing larger open spaces, taller walls and flexible floor plans. ■ Steel framing lightens structures, reducing foundation requirements and often reducing or eliminating piling. ■ Stick for stick, steel can weigh up to 50% less compared to lumber. ■ Steel can adapt to almost any application and works well independently or in combination with other structural systems.

8

dietrich metalframing •com

What about Cost?
■ More economical than traditional masonry, concrete and other construction methods. ■ Significantly less costly than wood 2x4s for nonload-bearing wall framing. ■ Reduces or eliminates callback costs for nail pops, floor squeaks and wall cracks due to shrinkage. The NAHB estimates the average callback costs the builder over $350.00 per call. ■ Lower costs for construction and homeowner’s insurance.

STEEL today...

Fire Resistance
■ Steel framing is non-combustible and will not add fuel to a fire. It improves fire safety in compliance with local codes and regulations. ■ Steel framing offers code approved increases in allowable floor area and/or allowable building heights compared to conventional wood framing. ■ One-third of all fires start in the wall cavity. ■ Actual case studies show steel houses perform very well in house fires, with little or no damage to the framing structure.

Termites
A few things you should know.
■ Over $1 billion is spent each year for prevention, control and repair. ■ Steel framing provides a termite-proof solution for the structural integrity of your project. ■ The most ferocious termite is the Formosan Subterranean “Super Termite.” ■ An average colony consists of about 3 million termites, but can be as large as 10 million. A single colony normally survives about 35 years. ■ A well-fed Formosan queen can live for 25 years and lay 1,000 eggs a day.

Mold
■ Steel does not promote the growth of mold and reduces the threat of staggering litigation. ■ Mold requires an organic nutrient source and moisture to grow and flourish. Steel is inorganic and does not contain moisture like wood. Kiln dried lumber still has between 11–14% residual water content. ■ California has already passed moldrelated laws, and nine other states have legislation pending.

BENEFITS
of

STEEL
...for benefits

What about Lightning?
■ Steel buildings are lightning resistant because steel framing provides multiple conductive paths directly to the ground. ■ The steel frame reduces the likelihood of explosions, secondary fires or personal injury. ■ Steel skyscrapers have provided occupants with safe offices and residences for years.

Earthquakes or Hurricanes?
■ Steel framing can be engineered to meet the highest seismic and wind loads prescribed by building codes. ■ Steel has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any framing material; a lighter structure with stronger connections results in lower damage from seismic force. ■ Steel’s strength and resiliency help it to survive earthquakes. ■ Smaller probability of damage in high winds; stronger connections (screwed vs. nailed) can withstand greater winds. ■ For generations we have relied on the strength and durability of steel in our commercial buildings, hospitals and schools.

dietrich metalframing •com

Easy to Use
■ Interior nonload-bearing studs are cut easily with metal snips (aviator snips). They do not require the use of a circular saw. ■ Simply twist metal studs into place and screw attach. Make a mistake and simply reverse the screw gun. ■ Up to 50% lighter than wood. ■ Pre-punched holes eliminate drilling for electrical and plumbing lines. ■ Special order cut-to-length material eliminates field cutting and waste.

that will

LAST A LIFETIME.

Environmental Benefits
■ Steel offers builders an environmentally friendly alternative to wood. ■ There is little waste when using steel framing materials. ■ Builders can reduce their disposal costs and divert material from local landfills (2% – steel vs. 20% – lumber). ■ Building an average wood-frame home generates approximately 50 cubic feet of landfill waste, while a comparable steel home generates about 1.5 cubic feet of waste.

Live and Breathe Easier
■ The Healthy House Institute recommends steel framing for good indoor air quality. ■ Chemically sensitive homeowners and those susceptible to asthma are exposed to fewer toxins in a steelframed home. ■ The American Lung Association encourages the use of steel framing with its Health House program. ■ Steel resists mold spores that can lead to chronic illness. ■ No pesticides or toxins are required to protect the framing from termites or vermin. ■ No off gassing from resins, adhesives or chemicals normally used for wood construction. ■ Better insulation values with EPS foam reduces outside noise pollution.

North America’s Most Recycled Material
■ Steel is 100% recyclable and considered a green building material. ■ Steel framing materials contain on average 67% recycled steel. ■ Steel can be a significant contributor to the LEED certification process. ■ It takes 25 old growth trees to build a 2,500 square foot home, compared with 7 recycled automobiles for the same steel-framed home. ■ 60 million tons of steel scrap are recycled each year: more than paper, aluminum, glass and plastic combined.

Interior Framing Overview

INTERIOR FRAMING OVERVIEW
Dietrich Metal Framing™ interior framing products are used in a variety of interior, nonload-bearing construction applications. The most common uses of nonload-bearing or nonstructural metal framing are partition walls, ceilings and column fireproofing in low-rise, mid-rise, high-rise, educational, institutional and multi-use commercial structures. Nonload-bearing framing is also used in residential applications including partition framing and basement finishing. Metal framing is required in most commercial structures because it is noncombustible and does not add fuel to the fire. Interior framing components are manufactured from corrosion resistant galvanized steel that offers significant protection from the elements. In addition these framing members are precision manufactured to exacting tolerances that provide the framework for superior construction. Dietrich Metal Framing offers an extensive selection of interior framing products including studs and tracks, furring and resilient channels, deflection products, corner angles and backing plates.

Interior (Drywall) Nonload-Bearing Framing
Dietrich Metal Framing’s nonload-bearing, nonstructural or interior framing metal studs and tracks are C-shaped channels, roll-formed from corrosion resistant, galvanized steel. These channels are assembled to provide efficient, low cost framing for partition walls, ceilings and column fireproofing. Gypsum wallboard, veneer plaster or traditional lath and plaster is applied to the metal framing to complete the wall assembly. These assemblies are nonload-bearing, nonstructural wall systems that support gypsum panel construction. They are not designed to carry an axial load. Most nonload-bearing, nonstructural walls are constructed using 25 gauge (18 mils) or 20 gauge (30 mils) stud and track. In addition, 22 gauge (27 mils) while less common, is also available. Dietrich™ Metal Studs are available in 1-5/8" 2-1/2", 3-1/2", 3-5/8", 4", 5-1/2" and 6" widths or web depth. All interior studs have flanges or faces that are knurled for quick screw attachment of drywall or plaster facing materials. Knurling grabs the screw point to prevent riding (walking) or paper tears. Studs may be spaced at 12", 16" or 24" on-center based on wall height. Wall height, stud spacing, framing condition, deflection limitations and lateral load are all factors that must be considered in determining the correct size and gauge of the applicable product. Dietrich™ Metal Track (or runner) is available in corresponding sizes and is offered in a variety of leg heights including 1", 1-1/4", 2" and 3" legs. The 1-1/4" leg track is the industry standard. Additionally, 25 gauge drywall track is available with a hemmed or safety edge in certain regions. This product (referred to as hemmed track) has a 180˚ bend rolled into the exposed edge of the leg to create a smooth, burr-free edge for safer handling. Track is used to align and secure studs to floors and ceilings, and is also used in conjunction with studs for constructing openings, headers and sills. Metal studs are twisted into top and bottom track and typically screw attached using 7/16" pan head framing screws. Like most products, drywall studs and track can be purchased in stock lengths, or custom ordered to match specific job requirements. This flexibility allows the end user to more efficiently control labor costs at the jobsite.

Overview

Interior (Drywall) Deflection Track Systems
Deflection products and systems are used in wall assemblies that are subjected to deflection including seismic disturbances, foundation settling, and normal head-of-wall compression. Deflection products allow for vertical movement while maintaining wall integrity and fire protection. A variety of deflection products can be used including: ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ SLP-TRK* Slotted Track. Long Leg Deflection Track with Spazzer® bridging bar. Long Leg Track with U-Channel and EasyClip™ U-Series™ Clips. Double Track (Overtrack) System. Fast Top™ Clip with Long Leg Deflection Track.

Interior (Drywall) Framing Products for bridging/ bracing
Bridging and bracing of interior nonload-bearing framing can be achieved through various methods. Three of the more common methods are: ■ ■ ■ 9200 Spazzer® Bar U-Channel and EasyClip™ U-Series™ Support Clips Block and Strap

Interior Framing Overview

The purpose of bridging is to provide resistance to lateral and torsional movement of the stud assembly. Bridging is normally required when: ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ Wall sheathing does not extend to the underside of the ceiling deck. Walls are only sheathed on one side. It is necessary to maintain the integrity of the framework during construction. To brace studs when using Long Leg Deflection Track. When required by certain fire-rated assemblies.

A special benefit of the SLP-TRK® slotted track is that it attaches directly to the under side of roof decks or floor/ceiling assemblies, eliminating the need for special cutting or ship laps. Firestop caulking or spray applied fireproofing is required to achieve fire-rated performance. The SLP-TRK®‚ system has been approved for use by ICBO, the City of Los Angeles, the Office of State Wide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD) for California, and New York City.

Interior (Drywall) Framing Products for various Drywall Framing Assemblies
Dietrich Metal Framing offers an extensive array of drywall framing products used in various framing conditions and assemblies. Some of the more common applications include wall furring, ceiling and soffit construction, sound control and a host of other supporting partition wall products. All of these components are manufactured to the highest quality standards. They complement the core stud and track product lines providing the most effective means to a finished assembly.

Low-cost, noncombustible framing for partition walls, ceilings and column fireproofing.
Drywall Nonload-Bearing Studs (ST-Series™)
■ Roll-formed from corrosion-resistant galvanized steel that conforms to ASTM C-645. ■ Prepunched knockouts for easy installation of electrical, plumbing and bridging. ■ Knurled flanges are provided to facilitate easier screw penetration. Drywall or (Interior) studs are used in nonload-, nonstructural-bearing wall systems that support gypsum panel construction. Drywall metal studs are available in 25, 22 and 20 gauge. Wall height, stud spacing, deflection limitations and lateral load are all criteria used to determine the proper gauge. Studs are available in stock and

custom lengths. Metal studs are twisted into top and bottom track and either friction fit, crimped or screw attached at 12", 16" or 24" on center spacing. In contrast to wood studs, metal studs will not warp, twist or bow, resulting in straighter walls free from cracks and nail pops. Metal studs are impervious to insects, mold and rot. They are noncombustible and will not add fuel to a fire.

Interior, Nonstructural, Composite Limiting Heights
Interior nonload-bearing partitions are not designed to carry axial loads. Limiting heights are based on stress or deflection limits for given lateral loads. Height limitations depend on the gauge of the steel used, dimensions of the stud, stud spacing and the allowable deflection limit. The composite limiting heights include the contribution of the gypsum wallboard sheathing on both sides of the wall.

Interior (Drywall) Deflection Track Systems

Rapidly installed prenotched, prespaced interior deflection system that saves time and eliminates materials.
Long Leg (Deflection) Track (TR-Series™) with Spazzer® 9200 Bar (SPZD)
■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ Eliminates high material cost of custom-made head tracks. Requires only a single generic Deep Leg track to provide deflection. Facilitates sprayable Intumescent/Elastomeric firestops. Eliminates stud spacing layout at deck. Improves drywall hanging since bow is removed from tall studs. Automatically positions and rigidly holds studs on 16” or 24” centers without fasteners in the head track.
Spazzer® 9200 Deep Leg Track

Dietrich™ TradeReady® Spazzer® 9200 is a prenotched, 20-gauge, galvanized steel spacer bar engineered to handle deflection at the head track of interior nonstructural stud walls. The prenotched slots and gripping power of the 50-inch bar holds studs into a rigid, accurately laid out gridwork that has excellent resistance to stud rotation and displacement. The Spazzer® 9200 spacer bar saves time and materials by eliminating the cost of custom head tracks and the time required to fasten and remove screws or layout stud spacing at the deck. Hanging drywall is also faster and easier because the Spazzer® 9200 spacer bar eliminates the bow that often occurs in tall interior studs. U.S. Patent Nos. 5,784,850 and 6,021,618

Interior (Drywall) Deflection Track Systems

Traditional, double track or track-over-track system.
■ ■ Eliminates bridging at the top row of knockouts. Requires custom top track/longer lead times.

Overtrack

DoubleTrack™ (Overtrack) System (OT-Series™/TR-Series™)

Dietrich™ DoubleTrack™ system is a two-piece top track assembly that allows for the deflection of floor beam or floor decks along interior partitions. A custom-made deep leg outer track is installed to the underside of the floor deck. A wall assembly is constructed on the floor then slid into place. The wall assembly is designed to allow a “gap” at the top for deflection. The track-over-track assembly, although still used, is becoming less and less common. The development of innovative deflection systems like the SLP-TRK* System (page 32) has significantly improved and streamlined the assembly process.

Full-depth bracing that restricts rotation and movement.

Flat Strap

Block (TR/ST) and Strap (BP-Series™)

Used as bridging when framing members are unpunched. Eliminates the need for clips. Provides alternative bridging when knockouts do not align.

■ ■

Blocking is field cut from the same size excess track. Solid blocking is made by cutting the flanges of the material and bending the web to form a 4" overlap on the wall member. Solid blocking is installed in the first and last two bays of each wall section, with one additional block every 8' of wall. Continuous strapping, 2" x 20 gauge or heavier as specified, is then installed on both stud faces, or one face if the opposite side is fully sheathed.

Drywall Stud

Block (TR/ST)
Blocking is typically field cut from the same or heavier excess track stock and secured between wall studs. Stud stock is also an option. Studs are attached using EasyClip™ U- or S-Series™ clip angles. Blocking should be installed in the first two bays, the last two bays and every 8 feet.

7/8 Furring Channel

Furring Channel (FC-Series™) for Walls and Ceilings

Dietrich™ furring channel is a hat-shaped corrosion-resistant framing component used to furr out masonry walls and ceiling assemblies. In concrete wall applications, furring channel is installed vertically to the wall surface using concrete nails or power-driven fasteners. Gypsum panels are then screw-attached to the furring channels. In ceiling applications, furring channels can be attached directly to the underside of the building structure using tie wire, screws or powerdriven fasteners. Furring channel is also used in conjunction with U-Channel, hanger wire and furring channel clips to form a rigid suspended ceiling framework. Gypsum panels, veneers or metal lath for plaster finishes are attached to the furring. Heavier-gauge furring enables greater spans and loading capacity. 18or 16-gauge furring is commonly used for purlins in exterior applications.

Resilient Channels (RC-Series™) for Walls and Ceilings

One of the most efficient low-cost methods of reducing sound transmission in wood or steel-framed partition or ceiling assemblies.
■ ■ ■ ■ ■ Lab-Certified STC-rated up to 54. Single and double leg channels. Knurled face to prevent screw ride. RC Deluxe™ (RCSD) has extra-wide screw surface for easy attachment. Available in 12’ lengths.
RCUR

Dietrich™ resilient channel is one of the most efficient low-cost methods developed to reduce transmission of airborne sound through partition and ceiling assemblies. The resilient channel dampens sound waves effectively, dissipating the energy and reducing sound transmission by suspending gypsum wallboard 1/2" from the stud or joist. Sound absorption can be maximized by utilizing sound attenuation blankets within the wall or floor cavity. Resilient channel is manufactured from 25- and 20-gauge corrosion-resistant galvanized steel and is available with single or double legs. The single leg resilient channel is available in regular (RCUR) and deluxe (RCSD/RCSE) sizes. Dietrich™ high-performance single leg resilient channel (RCUR) has a 1-1/4" screw flange. The RCUR is commonly used in wall applications. Dietrich™ RC Deluxe™ resilient channel (RCSD/RCSE) is the preferred resilient channel in many applications because of its extra-wide 1-1/2" screw flange. The extra-wide flange provides added rigidity and a wider surface for faster and easier installation of sheathing materials. Dietrich™ double leg resilient channel (RCDN/RCDE) has two legs for rapid installation. Double leg resilient installation is typically used for ceiling applications with multiple layers of gypsum board. Double leg resilient is easier to install, but offers a lower STC rating.

Exterior Framing Overview

EXTERIOR FRAMING OVERVIEW
Exterior-light gauge framing is used in a variety of construction applications including axial load-bearing walls, floors, roofs and curtain wall assemblies in low-rise, mid-rise, high-rise, educational, institutional, multi-family and multi-use commercial and residential structures. Light-gauge framing products can be assembled to provide versatile, cost-effective, lightweight and noncombustible assemblies used as primary or secondary framing systems. When used as the primary frame, steel framing assemblies have been used up to nine stories. When used as a secondary frame with heavy structural steel or concrete structures, light-gauge framing provides low-cost, efficient framing that can accommodate almost any facing material. Light-gauge steel framing is commonly stick framed; however, it is highly suited for prefabricated panel construction that provides additional economy in today’s highly competitive construction industry. Light-gauge steel framing is a superior building material. Its high strength-toweight ratio maximizes building design flexibility and provides rigid structural integrity. Light-gauge steel framing is easily insulated for high-energy conservation and provides noncombustible support for fire-rated construction. Dietrich Metal Framing offers the most comprehensive and widest selection of framing products, systems and services available in the industry. This wide selection of products, gauges, yield strengths, sizes and flange widths enables the designer to obtain optimal performance at economical costs.

Axial Load-Bearing and Curtain-Wall Framing
Exterior light-gauge steel framing is used in a variety of applications including axial load-bearing and curtain-wall construction. Axial load-bearing members are used in wall and roof truss framing. They are designed to carry both lateral and axial loads. Axial framing members provide primary structural support and have been used as the primary framing system up to nine stories. Curtain-wall framing members are used in exterior walls to provide an envelope or outside skin on the building. Light-gauge steel framing members provide exterior envelope (curtain-wall) framing for a variety of construction and finishing systems. They are ideal back-up support assemblies for brick-veneer, stucco and E.I.F.S. systems. Dietrich™ curtain-wall framing members are utilized for in-fill, bypass (balloon) and spandrel framing applications. Dietrich’s wide variety of products allow engineers to select an economical system to meet any design criteria, including high wind and seismic loads.

Exterior Light-Gauge Steel Deflection Systems
Deflection products and systems are used in both interior and exterior wall assemblies in areas that are subjected to movement, including seismic disturbances. Deflection products allow for vertical movement, and depending on the head-of-wall detail, can also provide for concomitant fire protection. A variety of deflection products can be used including: ■ ■ ■ ■ SLP-TRK* Slotted Track Long-Leg Deflection Track with 5400 Spazzer® Bridging Bar Long-Leg Track with U-Channel and EasyClip™ U-Series™ Clips Double-Track (Overtrack) System

Exterior Light-Gauge Load-Bearing Wall Headers
Load-bearing headers are structural components or assemblies that carry and redistribute loads over door, window or other wall, floor or roof openings. Headers can be field assembled using conventional C-Stud and track members, or specialty headers like the L-Header and TradeReady® Header can be custom-ordered to fit your specific framing conditions. The most common header configurations are: ■ ■ ■ ■ L-Header TradeReady® Load-Bearing Header Back to Back (I-Header) Boxed Header

*SLP-TRK is a registered trademark of Sliptrack Systems, Inc.

Consideration should be given to specialty headers as they substantially reduce labor and materials. These products tend to be lighter in weight and most are easily insulated after installation, unlike conventional C-Stud box headers that must be insulated during fabrication.

■ ■

Dietrich™ C Studs are lightweight, cold-formed galvanized steel members used in axial loadbearing walls, curtain-walls, floor joists and roof truss framing. C-Studs are available in a wide array of sizes, flanges, gauges and yield strengths to obtain optimal performance at minimal costs. One of the key differences between the various C-Stud/ Joist framing members is the flange and return dimensions. The flange is typically the bearing surface for cladding materials and a key contributor to the load-bearing capacity of the member. Flange sizes include 1-1/4", 1-3/8", 1-5/8", 2", 2-1/2" and 3". Dietrich™ CWI™ light-duty curtain-wall studs have a 1-1/4" flange and 1/4" return and are used to support the exterior skin in ultra-light applications. CWI studs are available only in the Pacific Northwest. Dietrich™ CWN™ curtain-wall studs have a 1-3/8" flange and 1/2" return and are used to support the exterior skin or cladding material (metal, stone, tile, glass, etc.) and the wind loads to which they are subjected.

Dietrich™ light-gauge C-studs for axial load-bearing and curtain-wall framing are prepunched with knockouts at regular intervals. These punchouts are specifically designed to allow for rapid installation of pipes, electrical conduit and wall bridging. Standard knockout sizing is 1-1/2" x 4" in members 3-1/2" and wider. Members smaller than 3-1/2" are unpunched unless otherwise specified at time of order. If specified, members will be punched with a 3/4" x 4" knockout. Knockouts are punched 12" from the lead edge with additional knockouts every 24" O.C. (on the West Coast the first knockout is punched 24" from the lead edge). Caution must be exercised when installing studs so knockouts align for bridging. Based on stud length, the distance the knockout falls from the tail end of the stud may not be the same from the lead end. To align punchouts, make sure to use the same end in the same direction consistently.

■ ■ ■ ■

The TradeReady® Spazzer® 5400 prenotched, 16-gauge, galvanized steel spacer and bridging bar is engineered to facilitate the rapid erection of exterior deflection wall framing. Before the Spazzer® 5400 Bridging Bar, deflection at the head track was addressed with a variety of systems including double track, proprietary tracks, deep leg track with cold rolled channel, clip angles or welds, solid blocks and metal strap across the face of the studs or by fastening the studs to the top track and removing the screws prior to installing the wall sheathing. The prenotched slots and gripping power of the 50-inch

Spazzer® 5400 bridging bar assembles steel studs into a rigid, accurate gridwork that allows for deflection and provides excellent resistance to stud rotation and displacement without the use of mechanical attachments and welding equipment. The Spazzer® Bar Guard™ retaining clip, or screws must be installed in curtain-wall and axial load-bearing wall applications to prevent the Spazzer® 5400 bridging bar from accidentally being disengaged.

Traditional, Double Track or track-over-track curtain-wall deflection system.
Double Track (Overtrack) Systems (OT-Series™)
Overtrack

■ ■

Eliminates bridging. Requires custom top track/longer lead times.

A Double Track system is a two-piece assembly that accommodates deflection of exterior curtain walls. A custom-made deep leg outer track is installed to the underside of the floor deck. A wall assembly is constructed on the floor and slid into place. The wall assembly is built to allow a “gap” at the top for deflection. The track-over-track assembly, although still used, is becoming less and less common. The development of innovative deflection systems like the SLP-TRK* System (page 62) has significantly improved and streamlined the assembly process. Double track deflection assemblies cannot be used in axial load-bearing stud conditions or above continuous window spandrels.

Bridging installation up to 30% faster with up to 40% less labor.

Spazzer® 5400

Spazzer® 5400 (SPZS) and Spazzer® Bar Guard™ (SPBG)

■ ■ ■

Dietrich™ TradeReady® Spazzer® 5400 bridging bar is a prenotched, 16-gauge, galvanized steel spacer and bridging bar, engineered to facilitate the rapid erection of exterior curtain-wall framing, load-bearing walls and high interior partitions constructed of structural studs. Until now, most bridging in steel studs was accomplished with cold rolled channel that requires bridging clips or welding. The Spazzer® bridging bar is equipped with proprietary prepunched slots that reduce installation costs and provide excellent torsional and lateral stud restraint. Nonload-Bearing Wall Installation: The TradeReady® Spazzer® 5400 bar is passed through the stud knockouts and rotated 90˚ to position, engaging each side of the knockout. For 20-gauge studs, the Spazzer® 5400 Bar Guard™ bar retainer clip or screws are required to keep the bar in place. The TradeReady® Spazzer® 5400 bar should be installed at maximum 5' O.C. vertically, or per specification, and should not be used in studs over 6" wide. U.S. Patent No. 6, 708, 460 and other Patents Pending

Exterior Light-Gauge Framing Accessories for Bridging and Bracing

Commonly used bracing for wall studs deeper than 6".
■ ■ ■ Provides horizontal bracing for studs deeper than 6”. Blocking is field cut. Used if knockouts do not align.

Block (TSB) and Strap (DT Series™)

Properly spaced horizontal steel bracing provides resistance to stud rotation and minor axis buckling under wind and axial loads. Block and strapping is typically used when wall studs exceed 6". U-Channel or the Spazzer® bar does not provide sufficient bracing for members wider than 6". Both stud flanges must be attached to top and bottom runner flanges to provide proper end support. Floor and ceiling runners must also be anchored securely to the structure. To utilize the stud’s load carrying capacity fully, horizontal bracing must be installed at proper intervals. Lateral bracing consists of a field-cut stud or track for solid blocking and steel strap bracing on both flanges of the studs. Solid blocking is placed at each end of the wall, adjacent to wall openings and 8' O.C. maximum. The blocking is attached to each adjacent stud via EasyClip™ E- or S- Series™ clips, or when a track is used, the flanges are cut, the web bent and a minimum 4" overlap is used to secure the track block to the studs. Strap bracing, 2" wide and 20-gauge (33 mil) minimum, is fastened to each solid block and stud flange.

DT Strapping

Solid Blocking (CS/TS)
Blocking is typically field cut from the same or heavier excess track stock and secured between wall studs. Stud stock is also an option. Studs are attached using EasyClip™ S-Series™ Clip Angles. Blocking should be installed in the first and last two bays and every 8 feet in between.

Light-gauge steel X-bracing for load-bearing framing to resist racking under wind and seismic loads.
Diagonal Tension Strapping/Shear Wall Bracing (DT)/Gusset Plates (GP) for Shear Wall Bracing
■ ■ ■ ■ Strapping is available in flat lengths and coil form. Available widths are 2”, 4”, 6”, 8”, 10” and 12”. Gauges: 20 (33 mils), 18 (43 mils), 16 (54 mils), 14 (68 mils) and 12 (97 mils). Standard gusset plate sizes are 6”x6”, 6”x12” and 12”x12”.
DT Strapping

Dietrich™ diagonal tension strapping and gusset plate components are used in combination to provide shearwall (racking restraint) for light-gauge load- bearing framing under wind and seismic loads. They are normally installed on both sides of the wall directly over framing members and are easily covered with facing materials. Straps are positioned diagonally from the bottom track to the top track. In order to resist load in each direction, an X-configuration should be used. At a minimum, double studs are positioned at ends of the X-brace to serve as compression studs. Straps are either attached directly to the compression studs or are attached via gusset plates. Compression studs must be anchored to the foundation, normally with Simpson* uplift anchors. For multi-story construction, the uplift loads are extremely high. It is not uncommon to require 20,000 to 40,000 pounds of uplift force at these connections. Since Simpson™ anchors are not designed to resist this magnitude of force, it is recommended

Gusset Plates

that embed plates be installed prior to pouring the concrete foundation. A heavy steel assembly is then welded to the embed plate and to the compression studs. Caution: Racking loads are first transferred to the roof or floor decking and then to the shearwalls (X-bracing). The Xbracing then relies on a proper foundation to resist uplift and shear forces. In order for the system to function properly, the load path from the roof or floor deck to the shearwalls to the foundation must be complete. This normally requires additional bracing, blocking, track and rim splices, drag struts, uplift anchors and heavy-duty foundations.

Floor Framing Overview

FLOOR FRAMING OVERVIEW
Light-gauge C-studs/joists are commonly used in floor framing assemblies. C-Joists are a cost-effective alternative to open web trusses, bar joists, engineered lumber, and cast-in-place or hollow-core floor assemblies. Light steel framing (C-Joists) are ideal for low- and mid-rise commercial applications such as hotels, motels, apartment complexes, condominiums, multi-family, and assisted living. Steel joists are also being used more extensively in residential structures. Steel’s high strength-to-weight ratio provides strong loading capacity and maximum spanning capability. Joists are commonly spaced at 12", 16", 19.2" or 24" intervals and are used in conjunction with all traditional flooring materials such as plywood, OSB, concrete filled steel deck, or one of the many varieties of fiber reinforced cement board. Dietrich offers a variety of floor framing systems including conventional C-Joist and the TradeReady® Steel Joist System. The TradeReady® Steel Joist System features large extruded openings in the joist to accommodate electrical, mechanical, plumbing and technology lines. The system also includes a tabbed rim track to strengthen the joist against web crippling loads, and to provide greater versatility and strength for ledger applications. This system, in conjunction with other floor sheathing products, provides one of the most cost-effective systems for non-combustible low and mid-rise structures.

Floor Joist Systems/ Components
Floor joist components are available in a variety of web sizes, flanges, gauges and yield strengths. This wide selection of webs, flanges, gauges and yield strengths (KSIs) enable the designer to obtain optimal performance at economical prices. Dietrich’s conventional C-Joist system is made up of joists, track, clips, web stiffeners, solid blocking and strapping to complete an entire assembly.

C-Joist

Dietrich™ C-Joist components provide an economical, lightweight alternative to open web trusses, bar joists, engineered lumber, cast-in-place or hollow core floor assemblies. Depending on loads and spans, C-Joists are typically spaced at 12", 16", 19.2" or 24" on-center spacing. Structural track (TSB), usually in the same gauge as the joist, is used as rim or band enclosures. Joist to girder attachments are normally supported with joist hangers, EasyClip™ E-Series™ or S-Series™ support clips. Web stiffeners may be required at supports and other point loads. Solid blocking and strap bridging is required to properly brace the floor assembly. Consult Dietrich’s Technical Design Guide for physical and structural properties, span charts and load tables.

Dietrich™ TradeReady® steel joists are precision manufactured from corrosion-resistant galvanized steel. Steel joists offer consistent quality, predictable performance and high strength to weight ratio, and they are dimensionally stable. They won’t expand, contract or shrink; they won’t warp, crack or twist. Steel joists integrate easily with other building materials such as structural steel, concrete, ICF and wood construction. Joists can be ordered in standard lengths or to your exact specifications to minimize waste. Consult the Dietrich™ Technical Design Guide or the TradeReady® Steel Joist Design Guide for physical and structural properties, span charts and loading data.

Dietrich™ TradeReady® rim is another major component of the TradeReady® steel floor system. The rim is an integral part of the system and drastically reduces framing time and effort. Rims have preformed attachment tabs at 12", 16", 19.2" or 24" O.C. spacing to eliminate layout time. The tabs are also prepunched to ensure fast, accurate and proper fastener placement. Embossed stiffening ribs on each side of the preformed tabs provide additional reinforcement, resulting in a significant reduction of web stiffeners (squash blocks) and support clips in a majority of applications. Once rims are installed, simply tilt up the floor joist, abut to the tab and screw attach. U.S. Patent Nos. 6,301,854; 6,691,478; 6,418,694 and other patents pending.

Block and strap bridging is used to prevent joist rotation and lateral movement.

Block (TS/CS), Strap (DTN) and EasyClip™ (E- and S-Series™)

Install immediately after joists are erected and before construction loads are applied. Solid blocking is field cut from track or joist sections. EasyClip™ E-Series™ Clips are used to attach blocks to open side of C-joist. EasyClip™ S-Series™ Clips are used to attach blocking to solid side of C-joist.
Coil Strapping

■ ■ ■

Dietrich™ block and strap bridging is installed to prevent joist rotation and lateral movement. Solid blocking, a field-cut track or joist section, is welded or screwattached between the first and last two outer joist bays EasyClip™ EasyClip™ and at a maximum ™ ™ S-Series E-Series of 8' O.C. along the strap, over all interior supports and adjacent to floor openings. Two-inch wide corrosion resistant strapping is also screw-attached or welded to the bottom of every joist flange. Lateral support on the top flanges is usually provided by sub floor or deck material. Spacing of bridging must be calculated based on the required strength. In general, bridging is installed at a maximum of 8' O.C. spacing perpendicular to the joists. For example, an 18' joist span would require two bridging runs at 6' O.C. spacing. Where the sub-floor or decking does not provide lateral support, strap must also be installed on the top flange of the joist.

The two-piece web stiffener enables easier installation when positioned between joist flanges. The parts are simply rotated into place, as opposed to sliding them in from the end of the joist. A single screw is used to attached the stiffener pieces to the joist web. One half of the two-piece stiffener can be used for lighter loads. When installing between the joist flanges, the one-piece web stiffeners must be installed by sliding it in from the end of the joist. As a result, the one-piece is better suited for installation on the backside of the joist in lieu of installation between the joist flanges. Web stiffeners must be ordered to fit specific joist web dimensions.

Truss Framing Overview

TRUSS FRAMING OVERVIEW
Light-gauge steel trusses are an economical, lightweight rigid roof framing system used in educational, assisted living, hotels/motels, military, industrial and countless other commercial and institutional structures when a “residential look and feel” is desired. Steel trusses are also used in residential roof and floor assemblies. They provide fully noncombustible assemblies that meet required fire codes. They are the ideal, cost-effective alternative to structural steel, bar joist and fire-retardant wood trusses. Steel trusses are compatible with almost every construction type, method or system including lightgauge steel, structural steel, CMU, concrete and wood framing. Light-gauge steel trusses have the design flexibility to accommodate almost any roof line including complex roof geometries. Some of the more common truss styles include fink, fan, pratt, king, flat, gable, hip, mansard, mono, cantilever, overhang and scissor trusses. Light-gauge components can also be assembled to provide open web floor trusses.

Advantages
Light-gauge steel trusses offer many advantages over traditional roof framing components. Because of steel’s incredible strength, light-gauge trusses can be designed for clear spans over 100'. They can eliminate intermediate bearing walls and create large open spaces. Steel trusses not only span farther, they permit wider on-center spacing that results in additional labor and material savings. One of steel’s greatest benefits is noncombustibility. Steel will not burn, and does not add fuel to a burning fire. Steel trusses are fully noncombustible and meet even the most stringent fire codes. In many cases they reduce insurance premiums and possibly eliminate expensive sprinkler systems. In general, steel provides straighter, tighter and truer framing, resulting in better, long term performance. Steel isn’t susceptible to rot, insects or mold. It doesn’t warp, twist, bow, shrink or swell like its wood counterpart. Ceilings remain flat, even and virtually free from unsightly cracks and “nail pops.” Light-gauge trusses can be field assembled using conventional C-studs, or they can be prefabricated in controlled factory environments and delivered directly to your jobsite. Prefabricated trusses offer many advantages over field assembled trusses including shorter construction cycles, higher quality and consistency.

Metal Truss Fabrication Options
Dietrich Metal Framing provides a number of lightgauge metal truss options to meet your specific requirements, including prefabricated or fieldassembled C-stud trusses. Aegis Metal Framing, our joint venture company with Mitek, provides pre-engineered, prefabricated and UL* rated trusses that are delivered to your site ready for installation. The Aegis** national fabrication network uses state-of-the-art Aegis™ software to accurately bid and fabricate a complete truss system. Aegis™ fabricators also provide sealed truss design drawings. Depending on the job requirements, your Aegis™ fabricator can also provide certified permanent bracing and connection design. Many Aegis™ fabricators can also provide truss installation. C-stud field-cut and field-assembled trusses provide another option for light-gauge trusses. C-stud assemblies require independent design drawings by engineering companies like Dietrich Design Group. Dietrich Design Group can also provide fabrication drawings for an additional fee.

Fire-Rated Assemblies Overview

FIRE-RATED ASSEMBLIES OVERVIEW
Fire-rated assemblies provide critical, life safety fire-resistant protection in a variety of wall assemblies in many different building types. These assemblies can be constructed from a myriad of different building materials. Some of the most common include masonry and a combination of steel and gypsum. Steel and gypsum assemblies have become the preferred and most widely used fire-rated assemblies. They are lightweight, low-cost, high-performance systems that significantly reduce overall building weight and construction time. Two of the most common fire-rated assemblies are Area Separation Walls and Cavity Shaftwalls. Area Separation Walls are typically used to provide two-hour fire-rated protection between adjacent living units in apartment buildings, condominiums, townhouses and multifamily construction. Cavity Shaftwalls are commonly used to provide fire-resistant protection for elevator shafts, stairwells, vertical chases and mechanical enclosures in most multi-story structures. Cavity shaftwall systems are widely used in lowrise, mid-rise and high-rise buildings. Dietrich Metal Framing provides fully tested and approved assemblies for both area separation wall and cavity shaftwall construction. What makes the Dietrich™ system unique is that it has been tested with almost every gypsum board and shaft liner manufacturer in the country. Unlike competing systems, the Dietrich™ CT Cavity Shaftwall and H-Stud Systems provide maximum flexibility to choose from a variety of board manufacturers. Other systems are only tested with one company. This unprecedented flexibility means quick availability of product at economical costs. It provides you with a choice and piece of mind knowing you’re using a tested and approved assembly.

Cavity Shaftwall
Cavity shaftwall systems are nonload-bearing fire rated wall assemblies that provide critical, life safety, fire-resistant protection for elevator shafts, stairwells, vertical chases and mechanical enclosures. Shaftwalls in elevators and stairwells are one of the most important wall assemblies in a building. They provide the only means of human egress from the building in an emergency. Vertical chases and mechanical enclosures keep vital communication, power, water, fresh air and exhaust systems intact when a fire occurs. Cavity shaftwalls are constructed utilizing one of two methods: masonry/CMU or light-gauge steel and gypsum. Gypsum drywall shaft construction has become the preferred and most widely used shaftwall assembly. These shafts are lightweight, install faster, and provide lower in-place costs. They also significantly reduce structural framing and foundation costs. Masonry shafts in high-rise buildings historically weigh between 20 and 45 lbs. per square foot compared to gypsum assemblies that weigh between 10 and 13 lbs. per square foot. In addition to substantial weight reduction, gypsum shaft assemblies can be installed from the exterior of the shaft at each floor, eliminating the need for scaffolding. Shaft installation is easy, quick and clean. Light-gauge steel and gypsum assemblies provide fast, lightweight, low-cost and high-performance assemblies.

Overview

Area Separation Wall
Area Separation Walls are nonload-bearing 2hour rated vertical wall assemblies that provide fire-resistant protection between adjacent living units in apartment buildings, condominiums and townhouses. Area Separation Walls are also referred to as party walls, firewalls, multi-family walls and H-Stud assemblies. Area Separation Walls are assembled between two independent walls to form a commonly shared party wall that extends from the foundation through the roofline. The walls are assembled with two 1" thick gypsum panel liners vertically installed between 2" H-studs spaced 24" O.C. C-runners or H-tracks are installed at the top and bottom of the walls and back-to-back between vertically stacked panels. Overall stacked area separation wall assembly cannot exceed 50'. Aluminum Breakaway Clips are used to secure the area separation wall in place to both sides of the floor, roof and truss line. The clips on the fire side are intended to melt under the intense heat during a fire, thus enabling a fire-damaged structure to collapse while keeping the fire wall barrier in place to protect the adjacent unit. This is commonly referred to as a “controlled collapse.” Area separation wall assemblies are a great alternative to masonry construction. The H-stud system is at least 50% lighter than masonry walls, installs faster, is STC sound rated and increases valuable floor space compared to 8" – 12" wide masonry walls.

SLP-TRK* Slotted Track
It’s a real challenge these days meeting head-of-wall codes for fire stop and life safety while maintaining the ability to absorb vertical movement in high-rise buildings. SLP-TRK® slotted track is the solution. SLP-TRK® slotted track provides a positive attachment for wall strength and allows for vertical movement. SLP-TRK® Systems comply with the toughest fire code requirements in the country, if not the world. It has been tested with a variety of leading fire-stop products, and has outperformed the requirements of stringent fire and hose stream testing ASTM E-119, ASTM E-814. SLP-TRK® slotted track also has met and exceeded the latest seismic cycling standards found in UL2079 and ASTM 1966. SLP-TRK® currently has over 100 UL™ listings.

Fire-Rated Assemblies Overview

“Dietrich’s shaftwall system gives me the flexibility to choose from a variety of gypsum companies, which means more profit to my bottom line.”

Dietrich™ CT Cavity Shaftwall Studs are rigid highperformance members engineered to maintain shaftwall integrity. CT studs are available in 2-1/2", 4" and 6" wide members. CT studs are punched with 1" circular knockouts at 12" O.C. for easy installation of conduit or other mechanical service lines. A unique feature of the CT stud is the slotting in the web of the stud. Independent laboratory tests have demonstrated that these slots improved resistance to thermal and noise transmissions effectively. CT studs are designed for use with 1" thick Gypsum Liner Panels. CT studs are friction-fitted between top and bottom J tracks. Gypsum liner panels are inserted into the stud flanges. The flanges provide an airtight friction fit along the length of the panel that eliminates rattling. Studs are automatically spaced 24" O.C. maximum once 1" shaft liner panels are friction-fit into place. The system is finished with one or two layer(s) of gypsum board to complete and achieve the designated fire rating.

Metal Beads & Trims Overview

METAL BEADS & TRIM OVERVIEW
Metal drywall beads and trims are traditional reinforcement and finishing products used in gypsum wallboard construction. Metal beads and trims provide crisp, clean and straight protection for drywall corners. The most common metal trim is drywall corner bead. Corner bead is applied to 90˚ exposed outside gypsum corners to provide a strong, durable, straight, crisp finished corner. Metal beads and trims are available in a wide selection of products and sizes to finish almost any drywall finish condition. Metal beads and trims are nailed, screwed, stapled or clinched in place and finished with joint compound. They are low cost, easily applied and provide high-quality, long lasting professional finishes.

Avantages
Durable—Metal beads and trims provide strong, rigid, dent- and impact-resistant corner and edge reinforcement. Straight—Precision manufactured to exacting specifications to ensure straight, sharp and crisp edges and corners. Corrosion Resistant—Electrogalvanized and hot-dipped coatings provide superior corrosion protection. Economical—Cost-effective method to protect and finish drywall and veneer corners.

Vinyl Beads & Trims Overview

VINYL BEADS & TRIMS OVERVIEW
Vinyl beads and trims are designed to provide superior, long-lasting interior finishes for drywall and veneer plaster. These beads and trims are used to provide durable, corrosionand impact-resistant edges, corners, arches, curvatures and numerous other finishing applications. Vinyl beads and trims continue to grow in popularity because they give architects, interior designers and contractors much more flexibility to create dramatic, sweeping arches, curvatures and distinctive architectural details.

Advantages
Durability—Vinyl accessories are impervious to corrosion when coated with veneer plaster, wet joint compounds or when placed in contact with steel or aluminum frames. Vinyl accessories do not contain plasticizers that could migrate to the surface. Impact Resistance—Due to superior impact resistance, rigid vinyl accessories are resistant to dents and kinks of corners and edges, during and after construction. Corrosion Resistance—Vinyl accessories are impervious to rust, corrosion, galvanic corrosion, electrolysis, and are not affected by fast-setting joint compounds or topping compounds. Solid Color—Standard color is white for a shadow-free finish. Paint Adhesion Properties—Excellent, no priming is required. Ignition Resistance—Rigid vinyl is self-extinguishing, and will not continue to support combustion once flame source is removed; therefore, it will not cause a fire to re-start or spread. It offers better resistance to burning than many other common building materials. Expansion and Contraction—Vinyl accessories are manufactured with perforations in the flanges to enable finishing compounds or veneer plaster to flow through and bond to wallboard. Perforated flanges remain embedded in matrix to reinforce the edges and corners. These factors, along with the fastening of accessories to the substrate prior to coating, make the accessories part of the building unit and therefore will move with it as the temperature changes, consequently the coefficient of expansion of rigid vinyl has little or no bearing on the installation.

Overview

Styles & Types
Vinyl Corner Bead is a rigid, easy-to-apply corner reinforcement that may be nail or staple applied. Flanges are 1-1/4" wide and are perforated to aid joint compound bond. Rigid vinyl resists dents, thermal transmission and will not corrode. Vinyl Splayed Bullnose Corner Bead fits off-angle corners that typically are 120˚–135˚. 1-1/4" Archway Corner Bead has the same properties as regular 1-1/4" vinyl corner bead, plus it’s manufactured with notched tabs on one flange to permit flexible forming of archway edges. Available in 8' and 10' lengths. All Dietrich vinyl products readily accept finish treatments such as paint and spray or roll-on textures. 90˚ Bullnose Corner Bead comes in a choice of 3/4" or more dramatic 1-1/2" radius to make rounded, more contemporary corners. Fits 90˚ corners. Vinyl 90˚ Bullnose Archway Corner Bead provides a bullnose treatment around arched openings. Tabs enable bead to be arched to a 10" inside radius or 18" outside radius. 3/4" Vinyl Bullnose Kerfed Corner Bead is the same as regular 3/4" radius bead, except it is kerfed so that the leg fits the channel of door and window jambs for smooth, rounded encasement. Vinyl J-Trim provides a finished edge at gypsum board stops around door and window openings and at ceiling intersections. Requires no joint compound. Rigid vinyl is not a thermal transmitter and helps stop condensation where board terminates at exterior metal surfaces, such as window frames and mullions. It’s rustproof and dent resistant. Rip Bead™ vinyl beads produce an exceptional finish at the intersection of gypsum board and ceiling grid. Once joint compound is applied, the tear-away strip is removed, producing a crisp, clean edge. Vinyl L-Stop Bead is a convenient finished termination for gypsum panel surfaces. Bead may be nail or staple attached to the stud through the bead flange. The flange is 1-1/4" wide and is perforated to aid joint compound bond. Rigid vinyl is rust proof and dent resistant. Surface is treated with an alkyd texture to help joint compound and paint adhere.

Paper-Faced Beads & Trims Overview

PAPER-FACED BEADS & TRIMS OVERVIEW
Paper-faced metal beads and trims combine galvanized metal corner and edge protection with high-grade paper tape to provide cost-effective, problem-free, compound-embedded drywall finishing. Paper-faced beads virtually eliminate any potential for corner and edge cracking by moving or floating with the gypsum independent of framing movement or settling. The result is a precise, highquality, straight and smooth finish, free from unsightly cracks, chips and nail pops. Tape-on paper-faced beads and trims are not fastened directly to the framing like conventional nail-on bead. Joint compound is applied to the underside of the paper flanges, aligned and pressed into place. Joint compound seeps through perforated holes in the paper to provide superior adhesion and bonding to the gypsum paper. Nail-on paper-faced beads and trims are also available. Nail-on trims are used when nailing or mechanical fastening is desired or required, but paper facing is preferred for application at joint treatment.

Advantages
Goldline* paper-faced products are recognized as the premier paper-faced finishing products. Here are a few of the reasons many finishers simply demand Goldline®: ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ Virtually impervious to scuffing and “fluffing-up.” Will not be damaged by sanding. Does not require nose coating. Uniformly durable throughout the paper’s thickness. Enhanced compound bonding during application. Enhanced paintability. Fewer call backs for repairs. The smoothest finish available. The most dimensionally stable paper in the industry.

Overview

Goldline* paper-faced metal products are available in a wide variety of profiles. The 90˚ outside corners have a number of different metal and paper widths that reflect the demand of a specific market or application. Wide flanged beads are used when finishers want a product that will cover an imperfect drywall corner (drywall stops short of corner, crooked house wall, etc.). Splayed angle outside corners are available to accommodate 120˚/135˚ corners. Inside metal corners are available for both 90˚ and 120˚/135˚. The same profile angles for both outside and inside corners are available in 3/4" radius bullnose as well. L-trims are also available in a wide range of sizes. These products are used to trim wallboard where it abuts with other building components such as suspended ceilings, beams, concrete or untrimmed door and window jambs.

Laramie Drywall has builders that demand paper-faced corner bead. Dietrich’s Goldline® bead is our product of choice. Goldline® doesn't ball, nap or fuzz when sanded. Goldline® means a better job for the owner and less call backs for us. The bottom line is a win–win for everyone.

These beads are applied using joint compound that embeds the paper bead to the wallboard paper. No mechanical fasteners like nails, screws, staples or crimps are used. Although paper-faced beads do cost more compared to traditional metal and vinyl, they provide reduced labor and materials by reducing the amount of joint compound needed and also eliminate one pass of finishing.

Veneer, Stucco & Plaster Beads & Trims Overview

VENEER, STUCCO & PLASTER BEADS & TRIMS OVERVIEW
Veneer Plaster continues to grow in popularity as a wall finishing system. The speed of application for one-coat systems makes it competitive with drywall, and the added smoothness of two-coat veneer provides a look of luxury and adds ease to decorating. In either case, the toughness of veneer plaster makes walls more durable and resistant to scuffs, gouges and impact damage. Having the right metal trims, control joints and corner reinforcements is an integral part of the wall system’s appearance and long-term performance. That’s why Dietrich Metal Framing takes such care in the manufacturing of these components. Our history in the manufacturing of metal lath and accessories for conventional plaster gives us unique knowledge of this growing trade and the product quality that is required to do the job right.

Advantages
Strength—Veneer and plaster are used to create strong, durable finishes resistant to scuffs, gouges, dents and abrasions. Superior Finish—Expanded mesh and rigid pronounced edges provide excellent keying and exacting grounds for superior bonding and finishing to minimize cracks and shadowing. Corrosion Resistant—Galvanized or Zinc for maximum corrosion protection. Zinc products should be used in exterior applications.

As the largest specialty wallboard, metal, and ceilings distributor in the United States, servicing the needs of commercial contractors from coast to coast, L&W Supply looks to Dietrich Metal Framing as a key vendor to supply a broad metal framing and accessory product offering, satisfying our customers’ job requirements in a timely manner. And, they have been doing that for over 20 years.

Overview

Styles & Types
Veneer Corner Beads are designed to protect interior corners and to establish suitable grounds for veneer finishes. Veneer Trims 701A and 801A are J-shaped trims that come in different depths and grounds to accommodate veneer finishes. Sized to fit 1/2" and 5/8" gypsum plaster base, 701A grounds are 3/32" for two-coat veneer and 801A grounds are 1/16" for one-coat veneer plaster. Also available in zinc for cement board applications. Veneer Trims 701B and 801B are L-shaped trims designed for use at the junction of veneer gypsum board base with rough concrete or masonry ceilings. They are sized to fit 1/2" and 5/8" gypsum board plaster base. 701B grounds are 3/32" for two-coat veneer, and 801B grounds are 1/16" for one-coat veneer plaster. Use zinc finish for exterior applications. Expanded Corner Beads are designed to protect outside corners and to establish suitable grounds for plaster and stucco finishes. Cornerite should be used on interior corner angles where the lath has been spliced or where additional reinforcement is desired. It should be wire tied to the lath using 18-gauge wire. Strip Lath is a flat expanded metal strip used as plaster reinforcement over joints of non-metallic lathing bases and where dissimilar bases join. It’s commonly attached diagonally at the corners of doors, windows or areas prone to cracks. Expanded Flange Casing Beads are used to ensure the proper stucco thickness. They are recommended for use with metal lath and masonry units.

Dietrich™ #66 Short Flange Casing Beads are used as a universal plaster stop at door and window openings, wall terminations and intersections. Control & Expansion Joints are used in large uninterrupted plastered areas to relieve stress and minimize cracking. Fo u n d a t i o n We e p Screeds protect the stop edges of stucco at the sill plate line. Holes in the flange allow some weeping, but the angular surface of the bead is designed to facilitate the egress of moisture behind the cementitious membrane. 1-3/8" J-Weep is primarily used as a starter track at the bottom of the wall for 3/8" one-coat stucco over 1" foam. Mini-Bead™ 900 Zinc is a zinc bead used for external corner reinforcements. It has 1-1/4" wide fine-mesh expanded flanges tapered along outer edges for improved concealment and easier finishing with EIFS basecoats and finishes. NOTE: Dietrich Metal Framing recommends the use of zinc or vinyl for all exterior applications. CAUTION: Joints and corners are a potential point of water intrusion. Dietrich strongly recommends building paper be placed behind all joints and corners. Also, a bead of highquality caulking should be applied under the joints prior to the attachment of the materials.

Mini-mesh flanges for plaster keying and eliminates shadowing. Galvanized or zinc for corrosion protection. Excellent alternative to Kal-Korner.
Mini-Bead™

■ ■

Dietrich™ Mini-Bead™ 800/900 are fine-mesh corner beads used to provide corner reinforcement for one- and twocoat veneer plaster systems. 1-1/4" wide fine-mesh flanges are tapered along the outer edges to enhance veneer plaster concealment. MB80 has 1/16" grounds for one-coat veneer plaster and 90 keys per linear foot for excellent bonding and strong, secure corners. MB90 has 3/32" grounds associated with two-coat veneer plaster systems. Zinc Mini-Bead™ (ZB90) corner beads should be used in exterior finish systems. Flange attachments can be accomplished by nailing, stapling or clinching.

Kal-Korner* is no longer available from Dietrich Metal Framing. MiniBead is a recognized alternative.

Deep-V

Deep-V E.I.F.S. Expansion Joints provide the same features as their Shallow-V companions with the added benefit of a 3/4" extension to the reveal depth. This addition enables stress relief in areas where extreme wall expansion and contraction will occur and when the sheathing and lath must be broken behind the joint area. A factory-applied tape keeps seams unclogged and is easily removed for a clean finish after the surface is completed. It’s commonly used in soffit areas. Deep-V is superior to plastic or caulk joints because it will not fail due to freeze/thaw changes or exposure to UV rays.

Expansion Joint #40—Galvanized (EJ40), Zinc (EZ40)

Expansion Joint #40

Dietrich™ expansion joint #40 is a two-piece, slip joint that finishes butt ends of adjacent panels in wide or tall walls and ceilings to allow for multi-directional movement. Panels are attached to parallel studs through the expansion joint flanges, enabling the finished surface to expand or contract naturally without cracking. These are ideal for joining dissimilar wall types such as wood framing to CMU and at construction joints.

#40 Expansion Joints should be used where excessive horizontal and vertical movement may occur. They give better results than J-Trim when used as a feature strip or as a wall-to-ceiling joint. Atrium walls, wide wall areas and structural column-through ceiling areas are some of their special applications. These offer broad functional and aesthetic opportunities. Adjustable expansion opening or reveal is 1/4" to 5/8". Ground heights are 1/2", 3/4" and 7/8".

Foundation Weep Screed

■ ■ ■

Dietrich™ F.H.A.7. foundation weep screed protects the stop edges of stucco and exterior insulated finish system materials at the sill plate. It’s commonly referred to as F.H.A. Screed because it meets all pertinent F.H.A. requirements as part of a drainage system for exterior stucco applications. The 3-1/2" nailing flange serves as a straight-edge stop at the sill plate line and flashing when water-resistant paper or paper-backed lath is installed over the flange. The bottom of the vertical nailing flange must terminate at or below the bottom of the sill plate or the bottom of the shear panel. This will ensure a tight connection between the bottom flange of the weep screed and the foundation. Bonding holes are punched in the 7/8" or 1-3/8" V-grounds to enable keying. The weeping occurs along the surface of the angular bead. Also available without bonding holes and in 28 gauge (FHAE) for non-code work. The Uniform Building Code (UBC)* requires that all foundation screeds have a 3-1/2" nailing flange, weep holes and a minimum thickness of 26-gauge steel.

Metal Lath Overview

METAL LATH OVERVIEW
Metal lath and plaster systems have been used for many years in both residential and commercial applications. Plaster finishes provide a smooth, high-quality wall surface, resistant to high impact and abrasion. Metal lath is used as a substrate to create a strong mechanical bond with plaster and stucco, and is used on interior and exterior walls, ceilings, soffits, fascia and ceramic tile underlayment.

Advantages
Strength—Metal lath embedded with the plaster provides superior strength and reinforcement. Flexibility—Readily shaped to ornamental contours to a degree not possible with other plaster bases. Fire Resistance—When used with gypsum plaster, metal lath provides excellent fireresistant construction: up to two hours for partitions and four hours for ceilings and column fireproofing. Security—Metal lath and plaster surfaces are extremely difficult to penetrate. They provide excellent protection against break-through.

Weight per Square Yard
Metal lath is commonly referred to in weight per square yard. Each nominally sized 27" x 96" sheet equates to 2 square yards or 18 square feet per sheet. Lath is available in three different weights: 1.75 lbs./sq. yd.—commonly used as an underlayment in interior ceramic tile applications and also with selected proprietary one-coat stucco systems. 2.5 lbs./sq. yd.—commonly used as a substrate for ornamental and contour gypsum plaster or portland cement stucco. 3.4 lbs./sq. yd.—commonly used for two- and three-coat exterior stucco applications. NOTE: Not all weights are recommended for all applications. Contact your Dietrich Customer Care Representative for assistance.

Styles
Metal lath is available in a variety of different styles for various applications. Dietrich uses a lettering system incorporated into the product code to indicate available styles. M—Flat Diamond Mesh D—Dimpled Self Furring V—V-Groove Self Furring Z—1/8" Ribs for Rigidity R—3/8" High Rib for Maximum Rigidity

Overview

Paper-Backed Offset Options
Metal lath is available backed with asphalt saturated paper for applications requiring a moisture barrier. Paper conforms to Federal Specification UU-B790a, type 1, grade D, style 2. Dietrich uses a lettering system incorporated into the product code to indicate available offsets.
P—Paper is offset by 1" on one side and one end.*

4-Mesh Z-Riblath is used wherever sound, flat surfaces are required. Nail, staple or screw-attach lath to framing with ribs perpendicular to wall studs. Z-Riblath is tied to suspended ceilings but can be nailed, stapled or screwed to the ceiling joists for direct applications. Flat rib lath should never be used over solid surfaces. 3/8" Riblath is the most rigid of all and provides the added support required when framing is more than 16" O.C. but less than or equal to 24" O.C. In wall and ceiling applications, it must be attached in the same manner as 4-Mesh Riblath. Due to 3/8" rib, minimum ground thickness must be 1". Barrier Mesh is a tough, rigid heavy-gauge expanded mesh used behind common wall substrates to protect against breakins and break-outs. This high-strength security mesh is tough to smash or cut and safeguards walls and ceilings in homes, apartments, offices, stores, storage areas and correctional facilities.

Metal Lath Overview

O—Paper is offset by 2" on one side and one end.

Installation
Lath should be applied with the long dimension across supports and with end joints staggered between courses. The ends of the mesh lath should be lapped 1", and the sides should be lapped at least 1/2". Check lap minimums required by local code. Nail, screw or staple-attach mesh lath on walls, so that the lower sheets overlap the upper sheets. Lath also may be wire tied to the furring channel for ceiling applications. If an end lap should occur between supports, the two sheets should be laced or tied using 18-gauge tie wire. Secure lath to all supports at intervals not exceeding 6". Mesh lath should be formed into corners and carried out onto an abutting surface. Where this is not possible, Cornerite, an internal plaster angle reinforcement should be used.

S—Paper is offset by 1" on one end. Sides are not offset.*

K—Specially applied Kraft paper for use with machine-applied stucco to minimize plaster waste.
*Available for non-code work. The Uniform Building Code (UBC) requires a 2" paper lap per ASTM C 1063-99.

Types
Junior Diamond Mesh Lath is used as a substrate for gypsum plaster or for Portland cement plaster stucco on either interior or exterior wall, ceiling, soffit and fascia surfaces, and can be used under ceramic tile in wall ceiling and floor applications. It’s useful in all general-purpose applications, and is the best lath available for ornamental work and contoured surfaces. Junior Diamond Mesh Lath—Asphalt Paper Backed is used in applications where a moisture barrier is required. Care should be taken to make sure paper overlaps paper and metal overlaps metal in a shingle-like manner during application. Dietrich’s paper backing extends beyond the mesh to accommodate shingling application. For external application, 3.4 lb./sq. yd. lath is recommended. Self-Furring Junior Diamond Mesh Lath is attached to substrate through the dimple that furs the lath surface away from a solid substrate. This lath is especially useful as a stucco base or for column fireproofing or replastering over old surfaces. Self-furred lath is required over all solid surfaces. Self-Furring Junior Diamond Mesh Lath-Asphalt Paper Backed is used where a moisture barrier is required. It’s attached in the same manner, but care should be taken to make sure paper overlaps paper during application.

Paper-Back Installation
Installation of paper-backed lath is best accomplished when metal-to-metal and paper-to-paper contact is maintained. Dietrich Metal Framing uses asphalt-saturated paper meeting Federal Spec. UU-B-790a as backing on metal lath products. This paper provides a water- resistant barrier that is a vapor-permeable backing consistent with grade D, style 2 paper (other grades and styles are available upon request). Minimum lap requirement for Jr. Diamond Mesh, SelfFurring and 1/8" Flat Rib Laths is 1/2" at the sides and 1" on the ends which can be easily attained with either “P” (paper offset 1" on one side and one end) or “S” (paper flush on sides and offset 1" on ends) applications. ASTM C-1063, requires a 2" minimum paper lap on all sides. Dietrich’s paper offset option “O” conforms to this specification. Make sure to consult your local building code to ensure proper compliance. 207

Expanded metal lath angle for inside or inner plaster corners used to reduce corner cracks.

Cornerite™ (XRIT)

Finished edges for safe handling. Galvanized for corrosion protection. Easy to apply and finish.

■ ■

Cornerite™

Dietrich™ Cornerite™ metal lath angle is used to reinforce all inside or inner plaster corners to reduce corner cracking. Cornerite™ metal lath angle is formed from finished edge strip lath and bent lengthwise to a 100° angle to ensure a snug fit into 90° corners. It's commonly used when walls meet walls or ceilings, over inner angles of masonry construction and in the floating-angle method of applying gypsum lath to wood framing in order to reduce plaster cracking. Dietrich™ Cornerite™ metal lath angle should be tied to the base lath using 18-gauge tie wire. Cornerite™ metal lath angle should not be attached directly to support framing but allowed to float in the corner. Available in 2" x 2" in 4 ' and 8' lengths, and 3" x 3" in 8' lengths only.
