Strength and Durability
THE NEW STEEL - FEEL THE STRENGTH
No one needs to sell the strength of steel, durability or the peace of mind it carries. Now with the advent of new high tech coating procedures, tests show a life expectancy on the coating protection of the base metal of well over 150 years!
Steel studs have been used in the construction industry for well over 50 years with a proven track record in commercial construction where the specifications have exceeded those required in residential construction.
The FRO MAR Structural Steel Panel System is an innovative patented product, using galvanized steel to achieve its strength and durability.
The wall sections produced can accommodate the designer's plan for residential or commercial.

Testing Evaluation prepared by The National Association of Home Builders Research Center
This table summarizes the average nominal axial load for the FRO MAR Panels tested with the applicable ? and o factors.
Average Nominal Panel Axial Capacity (lb) 1,2,3
1. Values are pounds per linear foot of wall.
2. The 9-foot and 20 gauge panel capacities were interpolated from the average peak loads for 8-foot, 10-foot, 22 gauge and 18 gauge panels.
3. For LRFD a ”o“ factor of 0.82 shall be used. For ASD a “?“ factor of 1.95 shall be used.
The average nominal transverse (bending) load for the FRO MAR Panels tested with the applicable ? and o factors.
Average Nominal Panel Bending Capacity (lb) 1,2,3
1. Values in parenthesis are pounds per square foot (psf) of wall..
2. The 9-foot and 20 gauge panel capacities were interpolated from the average peak loads for 8-foot, 10-foot, 22 gauge and 18 gauge panels.
3. For LRFD a ”o“ factor of 0.82 shall be used. For ASD a “?“ factor of 1.95 shall be used.
The nominal monotonic and cycle shear values for the FRO MAR wall.
Average Nominal Unit Monotonic and Cyclic Shear Values
1. Value for wall panel with gusset plates at bottom corners fastened with #10 screws at 6” o.c.
2. Shear value obtained by interpolation.
3. For LRFD a ”o“ factor of 0.82 shall be used. For ASD a “?“ factor of 1.95 shall be used.
Note: Values shown are for Panels which are 19.2” wide.
For 24” Panels multiple values shown by 80%
