BERRIDGE 24-GAUGE & 16-GAUGE FRAMING MEMBERS
Framing Member Components
Berridge Manufacturing’s Framing Member Components are a testament to our company’s commitment to providing high-quality, durable building solutions. Fabricated from robust 24- and 16-gauge steel, these components offer exceptional structural integrity for a variety of construction needs.
Key to their design is compliance with the 2007 North American Specification for the Design of Cold-Formed Steel Structural Members. This ensures that each component meets rigorous standards for safety and performance. Our framing members are designed with a minimum yield strength of 40 ksi for 24-gauge shapes and 50 ksi for 16-gauge shapes, using galvanized steel material. This level of strength is significant for construction projects requiring reliable, long-lasting materials.
An important aspect of our framing members is their net section properties, which are used for resisting moment determination and allowable shear loads. Additionally, the values provided are applicable for both upward and downward loads, making these components versatile for various loading conditions. The technical specification also includes a modulus of elasticity (E) of 29,500 ksi, further emphasizing their structural robustness.
Installation and technical guidance are readily available, ensuring that architects and contractors can easily integrate these components into their projects. Here at Berridge Manufacturing, we provide comprehensive support, including technical downloads and access to our team of experts for any queries or specialized needs.
Overall, Berridge’s Framing Member Components are an ideal choice for those seeking reliable, high-quality construction materials that meet stringent industry standards backed by expert support.
