Phantom® Stud

Drywall EQ framing systems

Phantom® Stud is the steel drywall stud for interior cold formed framing. Its design combines high-strength steel with additional stiffening enhancements for a drywall-framing stud. The result is a revolutionary system that has brought the performance of drywall studs to a whole new level. It has one of the best strength-to-mass ratio of any stud in the industry. It can be used to frame interior bearing and non-bearing walls, as well as exterior walls, including low-rise bearing, high-rise non-bearing and pre-fabricated wall panels.

Phantom Studs are interchangeable with conventional studs. Installation utilizes the same methods used to install conventional studs. It offers the same benefits of the conventional stud at a price that is more economical with a performance that is equivalent or surpasses it.
