6 inch metal stud wall
« on: February 19, 2009, 07:36:45 PM »
Looking for a formal test STC rating for a 6 inch metal stud wall, full batt insulations, 5/8" gypsum board on each side of the wall. Wall would extend from floor to ceiling. Need the STC rating and identification of who tested the wall.

Thanks.

Here you go, I'll give you a link:

http://irc.nrc-cnrc.gc.ca/pubs/ir/ir761/ir761.pdf

The test you seek is on page 54 (but numbered 52 on top right corner of page).  Note that the stud spacing is 610 mm, or 24".
