Barber Specialties, Inc. specializes in all aspects of commercial drywall, metal framing and acoustical ceiling applications.
Metal Stud Framing
Metal stud systems consists of two main components, the track and the stud. Tracks are installed first and usually fastened to the floor and ceiling using concrete screws to both the slab and to the ceiling joists. Studs come in the same dimensions as most lumber and are inserted in the tracks, then twisted in place until they are square. Framing screws fasten the stud and track together. Both studs and track can both be cut to size using snips.
Grid and suspension systems can be economical or aesthetically appealing. Ceiling systems are dependent upon the parameters the architect/designer has developed to create effective sound control.
Ceiling Panels can make all of the difference when choosing what is best for a project. Acoustical panels, wood panels, metal panels, translucent panels, and canopies can offer a variety of options and create a unique design to any project.
Drywall suspension systems install fast to both interior and exterior projects and can be ideal for complex shapes such as coffers or stepped soffit designs.
Gypsum Panels are panels made of gypsum plaster pressed between two thick sheets of paper used in drywall construction to create interior and exterior walls and ceilings.

Building insulation can be used for thermal purposes, reducing unwanted heat loss or gain and can decrease overall energy demands. This also applies to acoustic insulation, fire insulation, and impact insulation Often an insulation material will be chosen for its ability to perform several of these functions at once. Insulating buildings during construction is much easier than retrofitting, as generally the insulation is hidden, and parts of the building need to be deconstructed to reach them.
