Chicago Metallic® Spanfast® Drywall Grid System is available in a heavy-duty design, and is built with HDG 40 steel. This gypsum panel suspension system is an ideal choice for short spans or congested plenums where installing hanger wires is difficult and time consuming and, in many applications, eliminates the need for hanger wires. SpanFast™ drywall framing system reduces onsite labor by using a pre-notched drywall ceiling track to lock the furring tees in place. Chicago Metallic™ grid systems are third party certified to meet ASTM standards and are listed with ICCES Evaluation Services, reference report ESR-2631 for further details.

Performance Properties:
-Heavy duty drywall grid construction increases strength and decreases roll-over during installation.
-Pre-notched wall track allows for quick drywall grid installation
-This drywall grid ceiling system either reduces or eliminates the need for hanger wires at spans less than 7ft
-Sustainable: Minimum 25% recycled content, 100% locally recyclable
-Chicago Metallic® suspension systems meet a Class-A flame spread rating in accordance with ASTM standard E1264-08
