PATH is conducting an evaluation to identify the potential applications, cost, and labor savings associated with clinching cold-formed steel for home construction. Hawaii was chosen because it is the largest and most-concentrated market for steel framing. Applications being evaluated include the use of clinching for double studs used at openings and point loads, as well as stud-track sections used for connections around door and window openings.
