VORTEX HIGH-PERFORMANCE FRAMING SYSTEM
The most important evolution in internal framing construction in 50 years
Skyscrapers often creak and groan in the wind. Loudly!
It keeps apartment residents awake at night and it terrifies unsuspecting hotel quests. Creaking noises have been recorded at more than 70dB and sometimes the noise pattern goes on for hours. It happens in old buildings and in brand new buildings, but there is virtually no data or research material available on why it occurs.
Studco Building Systems has conducted world-first research into creaking buildings and has revolutionized the way internal walls are constructed. Numerous construction projects were monitored over a two-year research period to gain an insight into common installation practices. This provided an understanding of the on-site constraints that confront internal wall installers.
From the evidence discovered during Studco’s studies, it became clear that new problems require new thinking. After analyzing the results, a new product was developed, trialed and tested; the new Vortex High-Performance Framing System from Studco. The Vortex High Performance Wall System from Studco is a breakthrough high-performing internal wall system that improves the behavior of the wall structure in modern buildings.
Our steel stud framing systems are built with an emphasis on quality and created to offer unparalleled performance, like all Studco products.
As we continue to builder higher than ever before, builders and developers continue to spend millions of dollars attempting to rid defective buildings of creaks and groans, for the improved comfort of the occupants. Yet without research or a proven solution, the defects continue to occur and the costs continue to mount. Studco Vortex now offers the global skyscraper construction market a genuine solution with validated results. Apartment residents love Vortex.
