From Trim-TexTrim-Tex announces the best solution for drywall backing in steel stud applications, BackerBoard. This high strength plywood backing product allows you to attach cabinets, shelves, grab rails or just about anything else you want to hang on or attach to a wall. Unlike alternative backing methods, Backerboard installs inside the wall cavity, not over the studs, resulting in a perfectly flat wall.
BackerBoard comes in convenient 16" and 24" individual pieces that are easier to handle and eliminate waste.
Adapting the Backboard to different stud spacing is easy. Just follow the installation instructions included in every box.
Fire concerns? Backerboard is also available in an easily identified red Fire Treated Plywood.
