COMPOSITE Assemblies

Composite limiting height data can be applied to walls where 5/8” gypsum board is installed vertically on both flanges of the stud for the full height of the wall and installed in accordance with ASTM C840-­2013. TRAKLOC® composite limiting heights were determined in accordance with ICC-­ES AC86-­2012.

NON-COMPOSITE Assemblies

Non-composite conditions are common in all structures. When the gypsum board stops at the ceiling level, but the stud continues to the deck, it is a non-composite condition. While there may be advantages to contacting Technical Services or a Design Professional, many conditions can be covered by limiting heights tables shown below. When in doubt, call our complimentary Technical Services Hotline at 888-437-3244.

Distance of unbraced length (Lu) can be found in ProSTUD® Physical and Structural Properties.
