Product Overview

Steeltec Supply, Inc. - Extra Strength Backing

Limitation of flanges is critical as object of Extra Strength Backing (ESB) is to reduce protrusion into a wall cavity of 1” or less enabling profile to be installed without interfering with vertical obstructions (pipes, wires, ducts, etc...). This profile with Lip Returns provide strength for securing wall hung items (i.e. in comparison to a simple “flat stock” which has far inferior load capabilities).

Building code requires that MEP’s (Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing) be located within cavity at least 1” from wall sheathing.

Advantages:

  • Supports heavy load conditions
  • Pre-notched to accommodate studs attachment
  • Flange of ½” or 1” reduces filed modification to accommodate wall cavity obstructions
  • Reduces interference (i.e. notched track leg profile) for MEP installation in wall cavity
  • Improved fit for narrow cavity conditions
  • Provides bracing and bridging support
