Drywall

Overview

CURRIES drywall frames are available in 18, 16, or 14 gauge cold-rolled steel. These frames are manufactured to provide clean, sharp lines, rigid corner construction and fine miter lines on all joints. They are designed to go into an opening after the wall is up, and they are available to accommodate practically any wall thickness. All frames receive a factory baked-on coat of rust inhibitive primer, and are also available with factory baked-on enamel. (Request our paint selector card.) They can be used in drywall construction using steel studs, wood studs or laminated boards. Frames are available for either 1-3/8" (35) or 1-3/4" (44) thick doors.

CURRIES offers pre-engineered, knock-down (KD) drywall frames with face dimensions of 1-1/2" (38) or 1-3/4" (44).

Frame sizes are to match door sizes, in any combination of singles or pairs. Non-standard width or height frames are available on special order. Double-rabbet profiles are available with 4" face heads.
