Local building code requires that I have continuous support for the
ends of the drywall sheets for the ceiling. I have some places, due to
gas piping, where I can't put wood blocking. The building inspector
said there was some sort of metal angle I could install that would
provide the continuous support required. He called it floor stripping
or something like. Has anyone heard of this and know a better trade
name I can use to location this product, Home Depot had no idea what I
was talking about.
Not an good idea to have gas lines that close to the surface.
There are plates, but they are for protecting pipes and wires. I have never
seen a metal plate that was used to support drywall.
try Simson Strong Tie for plates

it for this application a few times. You must use drywall screws to
fasten the drywall to it. Here is one such animal:
