SOUND ISOLATION HAT CHANNEL
Metro Supply Company stocks the correct fitting hat channel for resilient clips like Green Glue Whisper Clips. Hat Channel comes in all types and sizes and we have found the perfect fitting channel for use with the 2-1/2" wide clips. Hat Channel that has a wider base will cause the hat channel to warp during install which leads to unsafe installation and an uneven finished drywall surface.

- Width: Top 1-1/4"
- Width: Bottom 2-1/2"
- Height: 7/8"
- Length: 10ft (12ft available)
- Guage: 25 ga
