Stud Section Profiles
The Stud Sections are used primarily as vertical members resisting lateral forces, track section as top and bottom runners and window or door lintels.
On larger openings combined sections, utilising both types of profile, are used as lintels and jambs.
Section properties are calculated in accordance with BS5950 Part 5:1998.
The values denote the shift in neutral axis due to axial load. A positive value means a shift away from the web.
A new extended range is now available. To view the span tables for our additional sections, download our SFS Flyer.

Albion Structural Framing System (SFS)
Our sections are manufactured from cold forming pre hot dipped galvanised steel S450 with guaranteed minimum yield strength of 450N/mm2 and a Z275 galvanised coating.
Albion offers non load bearing external wall framing system, infill or continuous, supporting the weight of lightweight claddings and resist lateral wind forces.
Design of the sections to BS5950 Part 5:1998. A load factor of 1.4 is adopted for the load tables.
The load tables (in Albion’s Structural Framing System Manual) can be used as a guide to size stud sections. They include spans up to 6m, with a range of deflection criteria from span/200 to span/360.
Also incorporated are differing types of stud restraint condition from full restraint provided by the cladding system, unrestrained sections and tie restrains provided at mid span.
Although studs are generally fixed at 600mm centres we offer safe loads for additional stud centres of 400,500 and 1000mm.
External Walling Technical Manual
Download Albion’s technical manual for on site framing systems.
Designed to provide cladding support to external wall elevations, Albion Sections SFS System can be applied either using infill panels, set within the structural frame or continuous framing, positioned outside the main structural frame.
Albion new Structural Framing Technical Manual incorporates:
Projects where Albion SFS has been utilized and which highlight the versatility of the system.
Details of our comprehensive range of stud and track sections.
Typical details on infill and continuous framing.
Typical wall cladding types.
To assist engineers and designers the manual incorporates section properties and load span tables toboth BS5950 Part 5:1998 and BS EN 1993-1-3:2006.
Our manufacturing systems are designed with the Customer in mind. We are able to offer sections cut to length and, where necessary, supply to site in phases.
Our range of sections are detailed on page 4, we can however offer special profiles for bespoke applications.
The maximum length of section is limited to 15m although, in practise, handling and transport considerations usually dictate.
To accompany Albion’s Steel Framing Solutions (SFS) brochure, the SFS flyer contains details of Albion’s extended range of stud and track sections. Section properties and span tables of the extended range can be found in the downloadable flyer below.
