OFFERING A 6-IN-1 SOLUTION TO RESIDENTIAL AND COMMERCIAL BUILDING INDUSTRIES.

The Tstud™ is a thermally broken, insulated wall stud assembly for use in exterior walls and in party walls.

THE TSTUD™ IS A GAME CHANGING TECHNOLOGY.

The Tstud™ is a new engineered building product that uses two lumber members, an internal truss system, and a frothed-in-place closed-cell foam providing a 99% complete thermal break through the wall assembly. With just ONE product, the Tstud™ raises the bar on 5 major construction concerns: thermal breaks, structural strength, wind loads, sound transmission and fire/life safety.

Tstud™ solves the number one nemesis of the Construction Industry:
how to “cost effectively” stop the transfer of outdoor climatic heat or cold from affecting the interior of a structures’ ambient room temperature.

Working with certified testing authorities, energy modelers and early customers, Tstud™ has developed products with outstanding thermal efficiencies.

 
 

sustainable, greener, stronger!

*Roof and Floor Tstud’s are in the Research & Development phase.

 

THE TSTUD™ ISN'T COMPLICATED.

It's quite easy to replace traditional 2x lumber with the Tstud™.
With little to no additional training.

 

Use the Tstud™ in a variety of ways!

KEY BENEFITS

STRUCTURAL

In straight down vertical testing: three times stronger than #2 2x6's. Four times stronger than 2x4's.

Because of how the Tstud™ is constructed, it is also a mini header when used as a top plate. Only one Tstud™ is required when used as a top plate compared to two 2x6’s or 2x4’s in traditional framing which has been done for centuries. 

The Tstud™ is stronger than LSL (laminated strand lumber) or LVL (laminated veneer lumber) stud sized lumber in most applications up to 16’-0” in height depending on wind load conditions. See the wind load tables in the technical evaluation report (TER1603-06 and compare to LSL and LVL studs without lateral bracing). The Tstud™ is able to be used in walls up to 16’ in height.  Keep Reading →

THERMAL

The tstud™ wall assembly provides a complete* thermal break through the wall – hot or cold.

*99.23% complete thermal break

A built-in foam core gives the Tstud™ three times the insulation of a conventional wood stud.

The Tstud™ is the same depth as a 2x6 but offers an impressive initial R-Value of 20 and has a 99.23% complete thermal break through the stud.  Meaning that there isn't a need for continuous rigid insulation to meet and exceed the 2015 energy code in all of the climate zones in North America.

By using the thermally broken Tstud™: Structural Insulated Framing System, a reduction of 4-7 points on the HERS numbering system is garnered.

Utility companies have confirmed up to $4000 rebate is available in Minnesota and most other states.
Please check with your local utility company for confirmation.

By improving the thermal break in the exterior wall with an initial R Value of 20,
24% of the home (framing members) are given a 290% improvement in energy efficiency. Keep Reading →

WIND

Hurricane and seismic testing has passed at 16” and 24” on center spacing. Keep Reading →

SOUND

The Tstud™ foam core minimizes the sound vibrations through the wall equal to a +6 in sound transmission ratings.

Providing an impressive amount of sound proofing, equivalent to using resilient channel to both sides of a wall.

It can cost thousands to add resilient channel to both sides of wall to reduce sound vibration. The same sound transmission rating is free with a Tstud™ wall. Keep Reading →

FIRE

90% of the Tstud™ remained intact after a 10-minute burn at 3500 degrees.

*soon to be code compliant!

MOLD, ROT, & TERMITE RESISTANT

More information coming soon! 

The Tstud™ will offer protection from the harmful effects of mold, rot (fungal decay) and wood ingesting insects including formosan termites. The Tstud™ is made to be used on concrete and in infestation areas of North America.

SAVINGS FOR HOMEOWNERS!

Greater energy efficiency means potentially smaller furnaces and air conditioning equipment.

By replacing traditional framing with Tstud™ Structural Insulated Framing Members, homeowners and owners of buildings can rest assured that all of the framing members are up to 290% more energy efficient. This benefit lasts for the life of the structure.
