Conventional 7/8″ cement plaster
Diamond-Furr ® 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 Plaster Stop (pt# DFS-375) is designed to be used just like a standard J-Mold at termination points in conventional 7/8″ cement plaster applications. The difference is the built-in furring strip on the Diamond-Furr product. This strip provides a continuous 3/8″ furring as well as a flexible connection point for metal lath. The lath is secured to the furring strip using 18 gauge tie wire and finished with a butterfy tie. This method effectively eliminates 100% of the fastener penetrations through the moisture barrier at these critical termination points and completely eliminates the potential for accidential tears in the mositure barrier by overtighened screws.
Another advantage of the Diamond-Furr Plaster Stop is that there is no need for additional petroleum based peel & stick products at the termination points. This results in a full 7/8″ cement plaster depth at these critical points and less potential for cracking in the corners. Less cracking equates to less potential for mositure migration.
We recommend using the Diamond-Furr Termination Trims along with our ICC approved Diamond-Furr Furring Strips for a complete system and the utmost protection against mositure intrusion.
All of the Diamond-Furr products are avaialbe with longer ground lengths for use on projects complying to the new energy code requirements when using 3-coat plaster over rigid insulation.
