Our Ocala Metal Furring Channel is the Superior Choice for Corrosion-Resistant Walls

Drywall furring channels are hat-shaped framing components that are corrosion-resistant. They are ideal for furring out ceiling assemblies and masonry walls. They can be used for:

  • Drop ceiling applications – furring channels can be attached directly to the underside of the building structure using drywall furring channel clips, tie wire, screws or power-driven fasteners. Heavier gauge furring enables greater spans and loading capacity. Eighteen or 16-gauge furring is commonly used for purlins in exterior applications.
  • Concrete wall applications ­– the furring channel is installed vertically to the wall surface using concrete nails or power-driven fasteners. Gypsum panels are then screw-attached to the furring channels.
