Angle iron or steel studs

Getting ready to build a hood/equipment room for furnace and gh's. Wondering if anyone would like to weigh in with opinions regarding angle iron frame or those fancy steel studs. Any other suggestions are welcome.

Thanks in advance
Philip

I used 2 angle iron and tech screws to hold in 20 guage galvy in place and 2 square tube to act as corner posts. Not sure what the fancy studs are...

Oh. Id do what I did.. I checked those studs out and decided square tubing would be a lot stronger.

Insulate it.

If you are going to be using forced air for your equipment I would put a suggestion out to build the frame out of 4" steal tubing and pop holes-weld round pipe with valves that lead to the equipment. This way the frame is like a manifold for the air. It will serve to things at the same time.

I brought a vertical wall down from my 18' ceiling down to about 6' high, and used all those galvanized metal studs. They were strong enough for that job, cheaper than lengths of angle or other mild steel, can take self-tapping screws without pre-drilling, and already galvanized so you won't have to worry about painting mild steel. I'd use the studs again if it weren't for a hood that's too complicated and might need a lot of structure to it for some reason.

Insulating the hood is one of Petes absolute greatest nags. Kenny, that is a really fantastic new idea, really good

Metal studs feel flimsy until they get covered with sheathing.

The same is true of wood studs. Sheathing increases the strength and rigidity of a wall.

But I kept it short Michael and it's a worthwhile one. I continue to see hoods that are in fact giant radiators heating the room instead of isolating heat and removing it. Couple that with hopelessly inadequate vent fans and you've made a structure bound to keep you miserable as long as you have it.

I used the metal studs. I basically built a free standing box with galvanized sheet on the outside. I used cement board on the inside. It's material they use for sub floor below ceramic tile. It's flame retardant and cuts like sheet rock. I insulated the inside of the walls upon recommendation. Works great

Actually it's called fiber board not cement board. Much lighter. Got it at Home Depot.

Thanks! If you have time would you mind posting a couple more pics of the whole hood?

What did you use for insulation?

I used aluminized HVAC Board sandwiched in between layers of sheetrock. I also used metal studs.

the air moving through as a preheat is fine and I think a good idea. I like the notion. Bottom line is what is coming off the top of the hood into the studio? I have no data for that. My own shop? It's cold in the morning.

So, what if you accepted Kenny's notion and still insulated the top of the hood?

You could be building garbage fires in 55 gallon drums in no time. It beats the snot out of the alternative.

Of course the hood should still be insulated, its the idea of running the air trough the frame that is genius
