I think jumbo stud is about 150mm but the gauge of the stud is thicker than standard stuff, but saying that I might be wrong lol

" jumbo studs" :rolleyes: , funny that a building surveyor refers to the size of studs , according to Bg is anything above 50 mm, if remember right. Saying that, nowadays the most popular studs on site are anything up to 70 mm. For walls higher than 4-5 meters studs from 90mm onwards are used with flat plate and c/c 350-400 mm. Metsec is used on external walls only, where you have to fix cement boards, cladding etc.

You should ask him for jumbo screws , just before you start to see his face:D
