Basics of Support Plates

Woody's support plates:

  • Act as a fastening device for studs
  • Are composed of high-grade, lightweight aluminum
  • Disperse the load of pressure exerted on each stud
  • Are domed to trap the track and hold studs rigid
  • Must be paired with the appropriate equipment:
    • Single-ply plates with single-ply studs and tracks
    • Two-ply plates with two-ply studs and tracks
    • Hole sizes with corresponding stud shank size

Deviating from Woody's support plate recommendations can result in track failure.
