The 2×6 EcoSmart stud has a potential R-16 rating compared to an R-7 for a standard wood stud. Higher R-value equals less energy loss, which in turn results in smaller utility bills.

Less Weight

The Typical 2×6 solid wood exterior stud weighs about 15 lbs.  The EcoSmart Stud weighs about 10 lbs. making them easier to work with and cheaper to ship.


When the EcoSmart Stud is used with closed cell spray foam in the wall assembly the racking strength is greatly increased for that assembly compared to standard construction techniques.
