Drywall Furring Channel

The drywall furring channel is a versatile “hat-shaped” section with many applications. Furring is most frequently used to link your finished wall product to the supporting framework. Furring, which is attached perpendicularly to bridging channels and to which the drywall is subsequently screwed, is also the preferred way of building drywall ceilings. Over concrete surfaces, furring is typically utilized to fasten drywall. It is also used in applications like metal siding, where it is screwed to the structure horizontally and then serves as a base for the siding.

A great way to minimize structure-borne sound transmission and increase the amount of usable area in a soundproof room is to use drywall furring hat channels. Galvanized steel hat channels for drywalls are available and can be installed in drop ceilings or walls. Greater loading capacity is possible because of the availability of steel channels in heavier gauges. A steel channel is the most resilient, reliable, and solid material to employ during construction. The optimal approach for building a drywall ceiling also includes using a cold-rolled channel in conjunction with a furring channel.

A safe and durable option for bonding to your ceiling or walls is steel because it has been galvanized to protect it from any possibility of corrosion or flames. They are also quite simple to install!

Furring channel is manufactured in both .018 and .033 thicknesses in standard 12 foot lengths.

Custom lengths are also readily available.
