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 t1-1/2" cold rolled channels using Metal Furring Channel Clips, or tie wire.  Screws or power-driven fasteners can be used to attach furring channel directly to the building structure. Heavier gauge furring enables greater spans and loading capacity. 18- or 16- gauge furring is commonly used for purlins in exterior applications.
