Systems Conformance

Since the 1980's Studco metal building systems have been the choice of some of Australia's largest builders, architects and plastering contractors.

Studco's building products have been installed in thousands of buildings throughout Australia and New Zealand in wall systems and ceiling systems from all major lining board manufacturers including Knauf, CSR (Gyprock, Cemintel, Hebel, etc.), GIB, USG Boral, BGC and James Hardie.

Studco also works closely with a large number of alternative lining board suppliers to create certified building systems for a variety of applications.

Our insistence on quality and extensive product testing provide substantiative evidence that our products are equal to and provide equivalent performance characteristics of alternative framing systems when used in common wall and ceiling systems, ensuring that the integrity of the plasterboard manufacturer's warranty is not compromised. Our products and systems have been tested by a variety of independent laboratories and organisations:

  • UL (Underwriters Laboratories) (structural)
  • Intertek USA (structural)
  • RE Proud & Associates Australia (structural, seismic)
  • BRANZ New Zealand (fire)
  • Exova Wharington Australia (fire)
  • RMIT Australia (acoustic)
  • PKA Acoustics Australia (acoustic)
  • ALION Riverbank Acoustical Laboratories (acoustic)
  • CSIRO Australia (various)

In the pursuit of ultimate quality and performance, Studco R&D team has adopted a rigorous program of continuous testing and certification through collaborative partnerships with some of Australia's peak research organisations and testing facilities.

Studco's wall and ceiling systems have been tested and/or checked for structural integrity, seismic capacity, fire rating and acoustical performance, and have consistently demonstrated less than 1% variation in all three areas when compared to similar metal framing systems. As a responsible manufacturer of quality products, we can provide a suite of certificates for of our building systems, for your peace of mind:

Many of Australia's most respected builders demand Studco by choice because they know that no one knows steel like Studco.
