I'm working on my analysis of roof truss assignment and got stuck on the computation of dead loads having no value for metal furring load. I only have the value for wood furring which is 0.12 kPa. I've been searching in the internet but still I'm not able to find it. Thanks in advance.

Here is a catalog of various drywall finishing products:

You can also look up 'furring channels' for the metal furring products if the items in the catalog do not suit your purpose.

Thanks for the link!
I'll use 13psf for design load.
