The LiveWall system includes furring tracks, which provide flexibility in design over a number of different applications. The building wall design and means of fastening LiveWall to the wall system are the responsibility of the local architect and/or structural engineer and installation contractor and must comply with local codes.  The installation contractor will be responsible to select appropriate anchors.

We contacted Fastenal and HILTI for their recommendations for various types of wall structures, and compiled them below (based on 18 pounds per square foot).  Contact your preferred anchor manufacturer to confirm suitability for your application. Please note that adhesives should not be used.
