Construct corrosion-resistant walls using a Norfolk metal furring channel.

A Norfolk drywall furring channel is a hat-shaped corrosion-resistant framing component used to furr out masonry walls and ceiling assemblies.

  • In concrete wall applications, the 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 the underside of the building structure using Norfolk drywall furring channel clips, tie wire, screws or power-driven fasteners. Heavier gauge furring enables greater spans and loading capacity. Eighteen or 16 gauge furring is commonly used for purlins in exterior applications.
