How to Cut the Time and Cost of Building Wall Openings

The HEDA Tough Wall System is an innovative solution to streamline construction, by offering a fast and easy way of creating wall openings in both internal and external applications.

How to Cut the Time and Cost of Building Wall Openings

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. Read about more internal framing structure options for internal openings here. 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 labour 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.
