PrimeWall® Z-Furring Channel is used in conjunction with the furring out of interior masonry or poured concrete wall substrates, in the support of rigid insulation while providing a level plane for sheathing attachment. PrimeWall Z-Furring Channel should be installed vertically with the 3/4" flange against the substrate. The type of fastener and spacing will vary based on application. Gypsum wallboard may be installed parallel or perpendicular to the Z-furring. Metal lath should be installed perpendicular to the Z-furring.
