The Steel Stud Manufacturers Association has released the 2009/2012 International Building Code version of their Product Technical Guide. SSMA is the first to make a technical guide available that complies with the 2012 IBC regulations. This guide includes span and load tables for both structural and nonstructural cold-formed steel framing wall, floor and ceiling systems. In addition, it contains data based on the requirements of American Iron and Steel Institute North American Specification for the Design of Cold-Formed Steel Structural Members (AISI S100-07 with supplement S2-10).

“In keeping with SSMA’s mission of being the leader in supporting the development and maintenance of quality product standards and specifications, the Product Technical Guide is in compliance with the latest building codes and standards,” said SSMA Technical Director Rahim Zadeh, P.E.

The Product Technical Guide is available for download on the SSMA website at
