    I have a section of black gas pipe running under my floor joists in the basement that I would like to frame around and drywall over. I want to keep this as low profile as possible, as it runs in front of a window that I will be trimming around.

    Do I need to protect this section with a series of nailing plates, or is the pipe considered robust enough to protect itself?

    Thanks,
    Jim
