Since steel is harder than copper, if the pipes can move due to expansion and contraction, the studs will eventually wear a hole in the pipes.

: What will happen to copper water pipes passing thru metal wall studs?
: (studs anchored to structual building steel in a commercial building)
: The copper water pipes are installed without plasting insulators
: and they are touching the metal wall studs in several spots.
