The Tstud™ is an insulated wall stud designed to replace 2×6’s and 2×4’s in exterior wall construction and in party walls. It is a new energy efficient building product with full sound control, code compliant fire rating and superior strength.
Welcome to the Tstud™!
Lifecycle Benefits Include:
• Full thermal break through the wall and NO continuous insulation needed to exceed the 2015 Energy Code.
• HERS score is estimated for most builders to be a +5.
• USG tested the Tstud™ Wall to be a +6 for an STC (sound transmission) rating through the exterior wall without using RC Channel. Excellent for use in party walls!!! As well as next to busy highways and streets.
• Fully Code Compliant for use at 24” on center.
• Yes, Underwriters Laboratory (UL) tested the Tstud™ to be equivalent to a Class A Fire Rated wall stud with a rating of 23.72. More on this later.
• R Value of the Tstud™ is 21.25, vs 6.88 of a 2×6. A 309% improvement for 17+% of an exterior wall.
• Using the Tstud™ provides for a 13+/-% increase in energy efficiency for the entire exterior wall envelop*.
If every new home built in the USA and Canada were constructed at 24” on center, over 500,000 less trees would be cut down. Annually.
If every new home built in the USA and Canada were constructed 13% more energy efficient, almost 200 million hard earned dollars would be saved on heating and air conditioning bills. Annually.
Need to speedily build headers? No problem!
Nail 3 layers of Tstuds™ together and it will span over 5’ in northerly climate zones.
Nail 4 layers together, and the span is over 6’.
R Value of the header = 21.25.
Lateral wind loads when framing with the Tstud™ at 24” on center, is equivalent to or better than, framing at 16” on center, using OSB.
In preliminary testing, a single Tstud™, 10’ tall, held 12,655# before failure. Compared to only 4400# for a 2×6 of the same height.
Cost of goods to a builder using the Tstud™? Most agree that there will be no upcharge for using the Tstud™.

Tstud(tm) and STCstud(tm)
The Tstud has been designed and tested for use in both load-bearing and non-load-bearing wall assemblies, the Tstud™ is appropriate in all exterior wall building envelopes as well as in interior walls where a fire rating is required or minimizing sound transmission is a priority. The Tstud™ can be used as a bottom plate, top plate, wall stud, cripple, and all the way around the exterior corner of a building or home.
The Tstud™ provides an R value of 21.25 and offers a complete thermal break through the entire building envelope, even around corners – no continuous insulation required. It has been designed with the building requirements of seismic and hurricane zones in mind.
Our next round of funding will finalize the Class A Fire Rated wall stud for use in party walls and exterior walls for use in apartments, hotels, senior housing etc.
