The Cold-Formed Steel Engineers Institute CFSEI Virtual Expo 2020 is designed for architects, builders/contractors, and engineers, with an educational program geared toward both skilled cold-formed steel (CFS) framing professionals as well as newcomers. The Expo will provide opportunities for education in cold-formed steel framing using online tools and methods. This eight-series webinars expo is the only one of its kind dedicated to the cold-formed steel framing industry. CFSEI Virtual Expo will provide both interactive “live” sessions and flexible “on-demand” sessions.

There are several excellent ways to make acoustically isolated walls with cold-formed steel (CFS) framing: including double walls, multiple layers of sheathing, resilient channels, and sound isolation clips. Putting 3-5/8” studs in 6” tracks, and snaking insulation between the studs in a serpentine fashion, is NOT a good way to acoustically isolate walls.
