Pratt & Whitney has developed a wood-foam composite framing stud that provides improved insulation over existing wood products. The end product is a 2”X6” stud that has wood sections removed and replaced with insulating foam resulting in a framing member that has the strength of a 2”X4” stud with an R-value close to that of fiberglass. This stud offers additional function in structural support for additional floors and roof nailing surfaces for plywood and sheetrock and provides wall stiffness for wind exposure.
