S162 members have a 1-5/8″ flange and a 1/2″ return and are considered the industry standard. S162 members are preferred for most curtain wall applications. They also provide the vertical strength necessary for demanding load-bearing structural applications and sufficient strength for many joist applications.

S200 members a 2″ wide flange and a 5/8″ return that provides a larger bearing surface for attaching sub-flooring or sheathing materials. This framing member is also used in axial load-bearing wall assemblies.

S250  members have a 2-1/2″ wide flange and a 5/8″ return and are used in floor joist assemblies and heavy loading conditions.
