Drywall backing STRAIT-FLEX X-Crack is a patented metal die cut material made from 22-gauge galvanized steel designed to eliminate cracks in drywall off angles and inside 90-degree corners in flat ceiling areas. The patented hinged rigid backbone, continuous fastening area and flexible tab design, hold drywall joint stationary while framing members can move independently of the drywall. The tabs conform and attach to framing members while the adjustable rigid backbone remains straight. It is adjustable to any angle and installs in minutes. If you read this article, please circle number 292. 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 hardfasten 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.
