WOOD TUBE AND WATER?
The paper studs must be protected and stored away from direct contact with water as they can easily be damaged if stored incorrectly. Protect the studs from rain and mount them on a dry floor. For temporary storage outdoors, the packages must be well wrapped/protected. Check that the packaging is intact.
HOW HIGH CAN WALLS BE BUILT?
Walls can be built up to four meters high and we can custom-make stud lengths. More information can be found in our assembly guide.
DO YOUR STUDS HAVE FIRE RATINGS?
A wall with a single layer of plasterboards on each side of the stud has a fire rating of EI 30. We have a summary of the performance of our wall types in our assembly guide.
WHAT ARE THE ACOUSTIC PROPERTIES?
We have a summary of the performance of our wall types in our installation guide, or on THIS PAGE ((LINK))
WHICH SCREW SHOULD BE USED?
We recommend screws from different manufacturers in our assembly guide. Usually, hard drywall screws work best in plasterboard and board screws work best in wooden boards.
ARE YOUR STUDS AVAILABLE AS DIGITAL FILES FOR CAD PROGRAMS?
Revit models can be downloaded below the heading “Documents”.
WHAT´S THE CLIMATE FOOTPRINT?
According to Wood Tube’s EPD, the studs capture more CO2 than they emit during manufacturing:
GWP-total A1-A3: -0.9 kg CO2eq/meter.
GWP-fossil A1-A3: 0.17 kg CO2eq/meter.
HOW TO SORT WOOD TUBES FOR RECYCLING?
The studs can be recycled as paper/cardboard or sorted as combustible.
CAN LOAD-BEARING WALLS BE BUILT?
The Wood Tube studs are only meant to be used for non load-bearing walls.
HOW TO CUT A WOOD TUBE STUD?
A Wood Tube stud can be easily cut with several different tools. Miter saw is most carpenters’ favorite.
