PVC Control Joint with Embeddable Flange design

Designed to relieve stress and assist in controlling cracking in large areas of walls and ceilings. Specially designed connector clips are provided for alignment and base for sealants.

Description

ClarkDietrich E-Flange™ Control Joint has flanges with more open triangles combined with a raised rib in the center of each flange improving plaster embedment by 80% and provides for easy lath tying to the flange itself.
