PrimeWall® Furring Channel

PrimeWall Hat Channel
 

PrimeWall® Furring Channel (hat track) 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).

Product Information
TSN_PrimeWall_Furring_Channel_Nomenclature_no example.png TSN_PrimeWall_Furring_Channel_Shape_Key_Horizonal.png

PrimeWall® Channels are designated as width followed by channel type, then depth and thickness:

Width (decimal(in) x 100) + F (Channel) + depth (decimal(in) x 100) + mils

Example: 1.5” width, 1.25” depth, 20ga
Designate: 150F125-30

PrimeWall® Hat Furring Channels are available in 0.875” and 1.5” depths, 1.25” width, and 18, 30 and 43 mils

Important Notes
1. Allowable ceiling spans are based on effective properties.
2. Single spans taken as the minimum span based on moment, shear, web crippling, or deflection.
3. Multiple span indicates two or more equal spans with channel continuous over center support.
4. Multiple span indicates two or more equal, continuous spans with span length measured support to support.
5. Multiple spans taken as minimum span based on moment, shear, web crippling, deflection, combined bending and shear, or combined bending and web crippling.
6. Web crippling values based on 1 inch bearing at end and interior supports.
