PrimeWall® Furring Channel
PrimeWall® Furring Channel is a hat-shaped corrosionresistant framing component used in conjunction with the furring out of masonry walls and ceiling assemblies. PrimeWall® Furring Channel is designed with knurled webs to facilitate faster attachments. For wall applications, furring channels form the support structure needed to secure the interior gypsum board, lathe or veneers to the exterior concrete wall. For ceiling applications, they can provide the horizontal bridge support needed between the building’s structure and the designed ceiling (suspended or otherwise).
