Summary: This Technical Note addresses some of the most common types of assemblies used with multi-unit construction. Although not all-inclusive, the rated assemblies contained herein are included to help the designer, specifier, and builder achieve cost-effective construction with cold-formed steel  framing. Additional references and methodologies are included to allow specifiers or inspectors who want a more in-depth treatment of the subject or additional information on a particular assembly to easily find this information.

Disclaimer: Designs cited herein are not intended to preclude the use of other materials, assemblies, structures or designs when these other designs demonstrate equivalent performance for the intended use. CFSEI documents are not intended to exclude the use and implementation of any other design or construction technique.
