Read time: 2 mins

From the foundations to the finishing touches, construction can be a long and arduous process; Studco Building Systems® have heard this sentiment from builders, contractors, and architects. It is our objective to reduce time spent on the jobsite and make the job easier in the process. Studco® have answered with a design that simplifies the composition of the steel framing system. The HEDAJamb and HEDAConnector together form the HEDA Tough Wall System; a resilient connection that give the wall system its strength and ease of installation.

What’s the difference?

Traditionally, wall openings would be constructed using boxed or back-to-back studs. This process requires two or in some larger openings, a combination of multiple stud and track sections to form a jamb stud and also a lintel.

Whilst this method remains highly popular, the HEDA Tough Wall System uses fewer sections and connections, thereby greatly decreasing construction time and simplifying the construction process. If your project involves any significant number of openings, each opening represents time and labor that could be saved or allocated towards other components of your project. Ultimately, HEDA complements the existing framing system.

Why choose HEDA?

Reduced construction time does not compromise premium performance. Engineered specifically for opening connections, HEDA is suited to openings of a vast range of applications. Whether it is to be installed internally or externally, for a window or a door, for a small or large opening, HEDA will fit the bill.

  • Pre-engineered design that’s easy to install.
  • Saves time on the jobsite.
  • Versatile for both internal and external openings.
  • Suited to a wide scope of projects, as its strength allows it to work with large openings and heavy structures.
  • Made for you – Available in custom sizing for your project.
  • Expert Technical Assistance – Studco engineering team will be on hand to ensure all your specifications, requirements and queries are met.
