Conventional 7/8″ cement plaster
Diamond Furr ® Termination Trims have a patented design that offers the first real solution to the moisture intrusion problems that have plagued the plastering industry for decades.
The Diamond-Furr Drip Trim (pt# DFWD-375) is designed to be used just like a conventional drip edge at termination points above doors and windows. The Diamond-Furr difference is the built-in furring strip. This strip creates a perfect 3/8″ ground for metal lath and a flexible connection point when attached with 18 gauge tie wire. This method of attachment effectively eliminates 100% of the fastener penetrations through the moisture barrier at these critical points. The continuous 3/8″ furring means that the metal lath never comes in connect with the water barrier and completely removes the probability of accidental tears by over tightened screws in the last line of defense against moisture intrusion.
Another advantage of the Diamond-Furr Trims is that there is no need for additional petroleum based peel & stick products at the termination points. This results in a full 7/8″ depth at these critical points and less potential for cracking. Less cracking means less potential moisture migration.
The Diamond-Furr Termination Trims are designed to work as a complete system with the ICC approved Furring Strips (pt # DF-375) which reduce moisture barrier penetrations by 55% in the field. When used together your project receives the ultimate protection against moisture intrusion and greatly reduces your exposure to moisture migration responsibility.
Both the Furring Strips and the Termination Trims have been designed in longer ground lengths, CI System, for use on projects designed complying with the new energy codes when using 3-coat plaster over continuous rigid insulation.
