metal framing


Im making a non bearing steel stud wall that 12' tall.

except i made the mistake of buying 10' studs and adding another 2 feet to cover the difference.

now i need to support these studs inbetween with a stud being that they're 16'' OC and 12' high.

im looking for techniques to do so:

i've considered,

using framing channels and dog earing them
or
using wood in between and screwing them in.

ideas?
