Rigid structural support for gypsum wallboard, veneer plaster or drop ceiling assemblies.
In a ceiling assembly U-Channel is suspended from the overhead structure using hanger wire. Drywall furring channel is commonly clipped with metal furring channel clips or wire-tied perpendicular to the underside of the U-Channel at appropriate intervals for screw-attaching drywall. Assemblies are installed per the project specification or ASTM C 754 requirements.
Furring channel can also be attached directly to the underside of bar joists. The furring is installed perpendicular to the joists and wire-tied at appropriate intervals. Wire ties are required for fire-rated and multilayer assemblies.
- Commonly used in noncombustible ceiling assembly
- Rigid framework for high-quality finish
- Furring channel clips easily snap into place for fast assembly
