  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
  • As shown in FIG. 1, furring strips 10 are preferably made from steel blanks, with chamfered holes 12 for screw leveling flush to the strip surface. The holes may be manufactured to different increments such as 12″, 8″ etc. FIG. 2 shows examples of various cross-sectional shapes for the furring strips 10, which allow the installation of various types of drywall, boards, panels, siding, etc. The furring strip 10 may have hemmed legs 22 for added strength, and can be made to different depths as well as different lengths. The steel strips can be used as a fireblock in the horizontal direction, and a drip edge may be added for drainage. The hollow back allows only a small amount of the surface to which the furring strip is being attached to be contacted by the strip. This allows for the maximum amount of air flow and drainage on a substrate.
  • Preferably, the furring strip 10 is a hollow vented strip made from a durable material such as steel. It can be used for all types of furring. Among its advantages, the furring strip system according to the invention can be made to custom lengths, will not burn in the event of a fire, and can be made with tolerance consistent to 1/10,000 of an inch. The furring strip is vented so that it allows moisture to flow down the steel furring strip and vent an entire wall. This feature is a significant improvement over a conventional solid furring strip such as wood furring strips that can trap moisture in walls, roofs, and floors, causing rotting. The furring strip also can be vinyl-coated to act as a thermal break or barrier for the metal to reduce heat and cold conduction caused by metal such as steel.
  • The metal furring strip also can utilize a foam or plastic block to create a larger airspace behind wall panels. These blocks can snap into the back of the metal furring strip. This also creates a thermal break for the metal. The metal furring strip 10 can preferably be manufactured from G-90 Galvanized steel to reduce the possibility of rusting. The furring strip system alternately can be manufactured from vinyl, fiberglass, aluminum, and other composite materials.
  • The furring strip can have clips and screw holes pre-punched to attach and to receive different types of ceiling panels, wall panels, flooring, exterior siding panels, decking panels, roofing panels, overhang panels etc.
  • FIG. 3 illustrates a pre-fabricated furring strip grid system 30 using cross-members 31 to allow fast installation of furring strips 10 all at one time, according to another aspect of the invention. The furring system automatically spaces itself on 6″, 8″, 10″ 12″, 16″ and 24″ spacing increments for spacing automatically by applying cross members 31. As shown in FIG. 4, the furring strips 10 can be adjusted horizontally along the cross-members 31 for studs that are variably spaced. The furring strips 10 can be attached to the cross-members 31 by various attachment mechanisms such as clamps with wing screws, magnetic clamps, etc.
  • FIG. 5 shows a panel hanging tool 50 in accordance with the invention for use with the metal furring strip system. The tool 50 is inserted into slots, holes, or openings in the furring strip, and holds wall or ceiling panels in place until final attachment to the steel furring strip is made. This feature enables one person installation The tool 50 has a screw clamp 54 for adjustably attaching to the furring strip, as shown in detail in FIG. 8. Use of the screw clamp 54 eliminates the need for any punches on the furring strip. The tool 50 also has a number of slots 52 for insertion of clips to hold wall panels for attachment to the furring strips. This is shown in FIG. 6, where a panel 60 is hung between two furring strips 10 using hanging tools 50.
  • As shown in FIG. 7, the tool 50 may have downward facing hooks 72 and/or upward facing hooks 74 for accommodating various types of tongue-and-groove panels for walls, floors, ceilings, roofs, siding, log siding, overhangs, decks, etc., and an additional projection 76 located in the middle of the tool for accommodating double panels.
  • FIG. 9 shows an example of a furring strip 10 with cross-slots 102 for vertical panel applications, as shown in FIG. 11. FIG. 11 illustrates a vertical panel 60 being hung on a single furring strip 10 using the hanging tool 50.
  • As shown in FIG. 12, the furring strips may have smaller slots to increase strength. The slots, holes, or apertures can be set at different increments and can have various sizes and shapes to accommodate various different applications.
  • FIG. 13 shows a second example of a grid system for strips 10 being attached to cross-members 31, with screws being used to attach the horizontal bars through the slots or with metal tapping screws.
  • FIG. 14 shows an example of an installed panel system 140 wherein panels 60 are attached to furring strips 10 via concealed hook fasteners 141 and 142. Different hook dimensions can be provided to fit all sizes of panels.
  • As shown in FIG. 15, the furring system of the invention eliminates attachment of panels through the face of the panels, by using j-shaped hooks 142, giving a concealed attachment and cleaner look to the installed panels. A special starter strip hook 151 can be provided at the bottom of the strip 10. As shown in FIG. 15, the panel 60 is first inserted into the starter hook 151 and then rotated into place under the hook 142. The next panel 61 then is installed over the top edge of the panel 60, resting on hook 142. FIG. 16 shows a configuration wherein panel 61 is fitted under a top hook 171.
  • FIG. 17 shows a starter strip 191 for a foam back vinyl siding design clip that sticks into the back of a vinyl siding panel 192. FIG. 18 shows an example of tongue-and-groove attachment technology, wherein hooks 181 insert into a channel or clip 182 fastened to the back of a tongue-and-groove panel 60 for attachment of the panel to the furring strip 10. The small channel 182 either can be glued onto the back of the panel, or pop riveted or screwed onto a wood siding fiber cement panel, roofing panel, interior wall covering panel, decking panel, aluminum panel, ceiling panel, or floor panel.
