ViperStud Steel Drywall Framing SystemThe ViperStud System is reinforced with ViperRib technology so it is stronger, stiffer and less prone to high shoulders when finishing. Its flat steel design works interchangeably with the conventional framing components you’re used to, and installs easily without extra training. ViperStud is less prone to twisting, has better screw retention and better limiting heights than the dimpled alternative. The single thickness ViperTrack works with both Viper20 and Viper25 studs and is 100 percent hemmed, reducing injuries on the job from other razor sharp tracks.
