Can Drywall Slip-on frames be welded?

Drywall Slip-on frames are recommended and designed to be installed as KD (Knock Down) assemblies and not recommended to be welded (SUA). If a DW-Series or K-Series is welded prior to installation it is no longer considered a "Drywall Slip-on" frame due to the installation process. 

 Universal anchors are designed to be field snapped into MU-Series frames but will also snap into Drywall Slip-on frames and is only done:

  1. If required by the architect
  2. A distributor can use a DW of K series frame and convert it to a MU-Series frame construction. This would only be recommended if the jobsite requirements are critical.
  3. In those applications Steelcraft recommends using the MU-Series frame which has a complete line of wall anchors.
