Backer Bar

Quick, Easy Installation

The ClarkDietrich Backer Bar was specifically designed to meet the demand for the attachment of multiple items and heavier items to interior partitions. 
Designed, tested and Patented by Bailey® .

Today’s building professionals require solutions to allow the attachment of such products and accessories to the interior partition walls. Traditionally, backing systems have been costly, time-consuming and not necessarily performing to the required code specified load requirements. A common solution was to use 20 gauge steel studs, which is now not practical since many of these interior partition walls require a sound rating of STC 50+. Backer Bar, designed for use on 25 gauge studs, will also provide the necessary support without any reliance on the Gypsum Board or degrading the Gypsum Board finish.
