Metal Sheet on Stud

Hello,

I am remodelling my bathromm and found some metalsheets sticking on the studs.
I am wondering what is this for since it doesn't hold anything together. They are just placed on the studs.

Thank you

There nailing plates used so someone does not drive a nail or screw into the pipes or wiring.

Any building supply or big box store will have them. They are what Joe said...nail or nailing plates. Normally in the same area as the Simpson Strong Tie brackets and such.
