The patented Diamond-Furr ® Furring Strips have a unique design that offers the best solution to the moisture intrusion problems that have plagued the plastering industry for decades.
Diamond-Furr’s Continuous Insulation (CI) System trims are intended for use on projects complying with the new energy codes when specifying 3-coat plaster over continuous rigid insulation.
The 18 gauge Furring Strips (pt# DF-1375) are just like the standard Diamond-Furr Furring Strips with a longer furring leg which protrudes beyond the rigid insulation by 3/8″. The Strips are designed to be installed directly over the weather barrier and fastened to all vertical framing members using waferhead screws through the provided mounting holes. The ground leg provides continuous furring for metal lath so it never comes in contact with the WRB. The metal lath is secured to the Furring Strips using tie wire through the 5/16″ attachment holes and finished with a butterfly tie.
The Diamond-Furr Furring Strips effectively eliminate over 55% of the fastener penetrations through the weather barrier in the field. If a liquid air/water barrier is incorporated the result is a complete 100% elimination of penetrations!
We recommend using Diamond-Furr’s Furring Strips with the full line of Diamond-Furr Termination Trims for a complete system and the best possible protection against moisture intrusion, thermal bridging, reduced cracking and greatly reduced exposure to moisture migration responsibility.
