Eliminates the need to install a backer rod separately, as the product features a factory-applied backer rod that is affixed to the vinyl Drip Flange and set for accurate jointing. This accessory allows the installer to create a “gap” on the wall without the hassle of aligning it in the field, thereby saving time and materials. The Drip Flange is recommended over window, door heads, short roof flashing, or underneath stone for a brick-ledge condition. Punched holes near top of attachment flange facilitates easy fastening.

- Combination Bead - Reduces steps in the field installation of Drip Flashing and separate backer rod. Ensures backer rod is installed around all door and window openings.
