The total square footage of your clipped ceiling or wall multiplied by .7 for 16" on center spacing or .6 for 24" on center spacing is an accurate way to calculate the linear footage of furring hat channel required. An exact way to calculate is to count the rows of hat channel and multiply by the width of the clipped surface.
Furring hat channel snaps into the GenieClip or Green Glue Clip with no additional fasteners. Splice hat channel pieces together by overlapping at least 6" and fasten the hat channel together on the slant of the hat channel using a standard steel stud screw.
