A unique tab/lock design and supplied knock-down (KD) corners assure that the DW Series and K Series drywall frames install in minutes on finished drywall construction. They are ideal for light- to heavy-duty applications in commercial and institutional buildings.
The DW Series frames are designed for interior drywall partition locations using baseboards. The K Series frames are designed for interior drywall partition locations not using baseboards. Die-mitered corner connections lock together once the frame is installed. Frames are factory prepared for field-installed silencers. The DW Series and K Series frames may be relocated without damage.
