HSS Heavy Stud Shoe
On This Page
The HSS is designed to reinforce notched, vertical studs in construction and is used to strengthen a wall stud that has a large hole drilled through it, typically to accommodate a plumbing waste line. This heavy stud shoe installs over the outside diameter of the pipe and is used as part of a total member replacement in structural applications. The HSS provides resistance to tension loads as well as to increased compression loads.
- Installs over pipe up to 2 3/8" outside diameter
- Code listed for both building and plumbing codes
- Made from durable galvanized steel to resist corrosion for lasting use
- Reinforces studs which have been drilled or notched during construction
- Designed to resist both tension and compression loads
- Flared flanges that provide extra strength
- 16 gauge
- Use all specified fasteners; see General Notes
- Bend flanges at 90° angle during installation, then bend back and screw into position (screws included)
- Bend flanges one cycle only
