Drywall Fastener Back-Up: Prest-On
The Framerback is designed as a substitute for bulky, non-structural drywall corner back-up. The patented perforations accept drywall screws randomly and hard-fasten the edge of the sheet to the remaining structural stud. The electro-galvanized steel fasteners nest together and work with all drywall thicknesses. In addition, the Framerback hard-fastens the ceiling sheet to the top plate of the partition instead of the truss bottom, eliminating callbacks due to ceiling partition separation or truss uplift cracks. An 18- to 24-inch interval between the top plate and the first row of truss screws allows the drywall to flex, reducing cracks.
