SigmaStud® Web RFT

TSN_SigmaStud_WebRFT

Any larger holes cut into SigmaStud® require a review by the engineer, as load capacity is based on the existence of standard punchout sizes. With the realization that additional holes do manage to appear in studs, TSN provides the SigmaStud (SG) Web RFT to provide reinforcement of a hole or holes added to the stud web during construction, when holes larger than the standard knockout are introduced into the web of the member. Use of the SG Web RFT ensures that the load capacity of the stud is not compromised when these types of oversized holes are present.

Features

  • No loss of stud strength when using the SigmaStud Web RFT with up to a 3" hole.
  • Each SigmaStud Web RFT contains 12 pre-drilled guide holes in the center section and 12 in the outside flanges, 6 per side, to ensure proper placement of the (24) #12 self-drilling self-tapping screws required.
  • Contact TSN’s Project Management Team at (888) 474-4876 for more recommendations.
