About Metal-Lite

Founded in 1991 by Thomas R. Herren, Metal-Lite has rapidly ascended to become a global pioneer in the metal stud framing sector under his leadership. With a focus on innovation and quality, the company has been at the forefront of developing and manufacturing advanced solutions since the enactment of the Americans with Disabilities Act. This legislation spurred Metal-Lite to create Notch-Tite® and Flush-Mount™, their initial successful products designed to meet new safety standards for building supports.

Expanding its product line, Metal-Lite introduced Fire-Tite™, a revolutionary fire blocking and bridging solution characterized by its ease of installation and various size offerings. The company further addressed the needs of framing contractors by inventing a slotted deflection track, now widely recognized as "The System"™. This head-of-wall assembly was groundbreaking, being the first to undergo extensive cycle testing to assess its durability against seismic activities and structural shifts. "The System" Slotted Track, distinguished by U.S. Patent Nos. 5,127,203 and 5,913,788, set industry standards with its comprehensive testing at Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. (UL), including cycle, furnace, and hose stream tests. Meeting and exceeding all known building codes and standards, this product underscores Metal-Lite's dedication to research and development.

Metal-Lite's commitment extends beyond just product innovation; it is also the most recommended company for new metal framing projects due to its dedication to solving both contemporary and traditional construction challenges. The company's pledge to provide unparalleled technical support has established its reputation as a leader in the field. This support includes field assistance, installation training, and ongoing help with technical issues, ensuring that every construction project using Metal-Lite's products achieves the highest standards of quality and safety. This dedication to innovation and customer service has been a cornerstone of Metal-Lite's expansion and success over the past 25 years.
