Timber customers in the United Kingdom will now be able to avail themselves of LP's SolidStart Simply Better Stud.
LP recently launched the product across the pond, touting its ability to minimize plasterboard cracks, nail popping, wall rippling and skirting & cornice gaps.
The Simply Better Stud promises greater uniformity and consistency, greater dimensional stability and added performance. The straight design also reduces the need for a mid-height wall noggin that's normally used with timber studs, acccording to the company.
“Simply Better Studs create a more stable wall by dramatically improving straightness and stability,” said Al Huber, international sales manager for LP Building Products’ EWP division. “And because they are not subject to knots, wane or excessive warping, every piece can be used. This reduces not just waste, but also the risk of ‘call backs’ associated with shrinkage and movement, making it a revolutionary new alternative for the UK’s timber market.”
