Reduce construction time with Studco nogging brackets

Some types of buildings require extensive use of timber noggings in steel stud walls, such as hospitals, aged care facilities, hotels and schools. The reason why architects specify timber noggings is to provide a suitable fixing point for wall-mounted fixtures that are installed after the plastering process is complete.

Such fixtures include hand rails, wall-mounted cupboards and shelving, and plumbing fittings. Traditional fixing methods for timber noggings in steel stud walls include cutting each length exactly to size to go between the studs, notching the timber to go over the stud lip and using packing materials to get the front edge of the noggings to come flush with the face of the wall studs. All these processes are labor-intensive and require skilled workmanship to accomplish.

The range of Studco® nogging brackets de-skills the process and provides a high-strength fixing in a fraction of the time. Nogging brackets are fixed to the flange of the wall stud and the timber nogging is then screw fixed through the rear of the bracket, providing a strong and secure fixing point for all types of fixtures and fittings.

The versatility of the Studco nogging brackets is unmatched by any other product, with many benefits available to the site installer:

  • Wide fixing flange to allow for variations to timber length
  • Suitable for 18mm plywood and 35mm pine studs
  • Pre-punched for fast, easy fixing
  • Made from Bluescope Z275 galvanized steel
  • Ultra-slim design to minimize plasterboard disturbance
  • Long runs of noggings accomplished quickly with ‘intermediate’ bracket with two flanges
