ClarkDietrich furring channel is a hat-shaped corrosion-resistant framing component used to furr out masonry walls and ceiling assemblies. In concrete wall applications, 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. In drop ceiling applications, furring channels can be attached directly to the underside of the building structure using Metal Furring Channel Clips, tie wire, screws or power-driven fasteners. Heavier gauge furring enables greater spans and loading capacity. 18- or 16- gauge furring is commonly used for purlins in exterior applications.
