CT Shaftwall Stud

OEG CT Shaftwall Stud is a rigid member engineered to maintain shaftwall integrity and are used with 1" thick gypsum shaft-liner panels. Gypsum shaft-liners can be easily aligned in the flanges of the CT Stud.

CT Shaftwall Stud is used in conjunction with OEG J-Tabbed Track, which are friction fitted at the top and bottom of CT Shaftwall Stud. The tabs in J-Tabbed track automatically allow the standard spacing of 24" O.C. The J-Tabbed Track is used in ceiling and floor assemblies of shaftwall systems.

J-Tabbed Track has one leg longer than the other, the longer leg is available in 2-1/4" and 3" and is installed against the shaft. To achieve the desired fire rating, the system should be finished with fire rated gypsum board.


OEG provides strong and efficient assemblies for the construction of shafwall systems. CT Stud and J-Tabbed track are engineered to be used with shaft-liners from multiple manufacturers.

Shaftwall systems consisting of light-gage steel and gypsum boards are becoming more and more popular. Compared to masonry or CMU construction, shaftwall systems are more light-weight, quicker to assemble and cost efficient, because they reduce structural framing and foundation costs. Most common applications of shaftwall assemblies are elevators and stairwells. Shaftwall systems also provide safety and fire protection.
