Updated Metal Framing Application Guide
Track stitching in metal framing applications now requires a 5.5mm diameter fastener instead of the previously widely held understanding that a 4.8mm diameter fastener was sufficent. We have therefore removed 4.8mm diameter fasteners for this application from our ‘Fixing Application Guide for Metal Framing Systems’ in light of this change in industry standards.
