#15 Zinc Double-V Control Joint


#15 Expanded Flange Control Joint (Double-V) is used to relieve stresses in large plastered areas of walls, ceilings, and stucco areas. The Double-V Control Joint counteracts the inherent shrinkage during stucco curing and general thermal changes and provides a higher degree of corrosion resistance than the galvanized steel version.

Application(s): Stucco

This nearly inconspicuous, expanded wing control joint minimizes cracking and assures proper plaster and stucco thickness.

  • Ground heights include 3/8” for thin coat plaster and 1/2", 3/4" and 7/8" for conventional plaster applications.
  • Follow use provisions outlined in ASTM C1063.
  • The #15 Double-V Control Joint is also available in galvanized steel for instances when increased corrosion resistance is not required.
