Why we consider SpaceStud to be the complete Stud Wall Solution

Why we consider SpaceStud to be the complete Stud Wall Solution

As you may already know, the structural stud wall system that we supply is called SpaceStud. Over the years we have worked with many different systems, but we can say unequivocally that this is by far the best because, to put it simply, it covers all the bases.

Ochil Timber have been pioneers of this system and we’re delighted to say that SpaceStud is now widely used within the industry. We quickly recognised that it provided a solution to an increasing demand for better U values in construction. It also provides improved performance in either open or closed wall panel construction.

It’s economical too. Rather than take our word for it, here’s what Neil Smyth, Construction Director with Morrison Construction has to say “The ‘buildability’ of Ochil’s system was very helpful on what was a particularly tight site and it certainly was effective in meeting the brief on air tightness and thermal performance.You can read more about that project here.

SpaceStud comprises 2 timber flanges that are spaced apart with plated timber ends. This makes stud depths of up to almost anything possible. We also use less material in construction when compared to traditional systems too. This all helps to make SpaceStud one of the most cost-effective solutions available on the market today.

Our customers know that they can trust us to provide them with the right stud wall system at the right price. When you choose SpaceStud from Ochil Timber, not only are you choosing the best solution for your own project, you also benefit from the advice and expertise that we bring to on everything we undertake.
