#093 Zinc Control Joint is typically installed from door header to ceiling, from floor to ceiling in long partition runs, and from wall-to-wall in large ceiling areas. Zinc Control Joints are manufactured from high-quality pure zinc and can be used for interior or exterior applications where heightened corrosion resistance is required. The 1/4" by 7/16" opening is protected by plastic tape, which is removed after joint compound or plaster has been applied and the finish is completed.
Note: Where fire and/or sound ratings are required, a code approved and tested joint assembly must be installed behind the ZNCJ control joint. Consult construction documents for details of construction for the control joint assembly.
