December 1st, 2013 - West Chester, Ohio — ClarkDietrich Building Systems is proud to announce the latest version of its popular iProSTUD steel framing design tool ⎯ iProSTUD 2.0. The interactive tool is a component of the ClarkDietrich iTools web application and features a completely redesigned interface that allow users to quickly calculate a broad range of data for interior wall and ceiling systems.
Developed specifically for use with the ProSTUD® Drywall Framing System, iProSTUD 2.0 gives contractors and architects the ability to filter wall assembly data by specific properties, including: wall design, wall assembly, limiting heights, STC sound ratings and UL fire protection ratings. In addition, iProSTUD 2.0 provides direct links to UL design reports, third-party STC sound tests and SubmittalPro®, where contractors can view technical data sheets and generate submittals.
“The launch of iProSTUD 2.0 underscores our commitment to provide the building community with innovative tools that make their jobs easier at every phase of wall and ceiling design,” said Mike Murzyn, technical product and marketing manager, ClarkDietrich Building Systems. “As our customer demands continue to change and expand, ClarkDietrich will continue to develop solutions to meet and exceed their wall and ceiling technical needs.”
Launched in 2013, ClarkDietrich iTools was developed to help architects and contractors evaluate purchasing decisions and assist in product selection for steel framing projects. The cost-saving calculators use applicable project data to give an instant comparative pricing model for both materials and labor for many of ClarkDietrich steel framing products. ClarkDietrich iTools also provides direct links to product pages, LEED® request forms, product literature and technical data sheets.
ClarkDietrich iTools is available in both desktop and mobile formats at iTools.clarkdietrich.com.
