ClarkDietrich® has announced the addition of its new E-Flange Control Joint to their vinyl product line. The patent-pending E-Flange features a unique raised flange design that provides 80% more stucco embedment than standard flat flange profiles. The larger triangular perforations in ClarkDietrich’s E-Flange allow more stucco mix to flow through the flange, providing more thorough and consistent embedment. In addition, the unique E-Flange shape allows for quick tying of lath and other accessories, making for easier installation.
Specially designed connector clips are provided with the E-Flange Control Joint for easier alignment and a base for sealants. Factory fabricated joint intersections are also available in cross, tee, and right-angle configurations to be used as needed. The ClarkDietrich E-Flange Control Joint complies with all associated ASTM and code standards for exterior vinyl materials per ASTM D1784 and ASTM C-1063, Table 1. The product also meets the requirements for full embedment of the assembly per ASTM C1861 and C1063, and assist in accomplishing the ASTM provision for tying the control joint to the lath through its rib sections in the flange area.
