Let’s face it — finishing around windows, doors and other building components like these can be major pains, and even more major time-sucks. And that’s before you start throwing issues into the mix like allowing for structural movement, reducing sound transmissions and working with uneven surfaces. These requirements usually call for using caulk, and as anyone on this side of construction knows, bringing caulk into the equation usually means messy, inconsistent finishes (plus, you’ll probably have to go back and do it all again in a few years). Those can be huge problems. So, what is Super Seal Tear Away L Bead? It’s the versatile solution to all these problems, and then some.
Super Seal Tear Away L Bead is a vinyl bead that forms a perfect, permanent seal around windows, doors and anywhere else where drywall may be butting up against a heavier substrate like a concrete or brick wall. Comprised of a rigid vinyl leg, a highly flexible apex gasket and a handy tear-off strip, it’s the unbeatable choice for when you’re working on a job that may be subject to expansion and/or contraction. That flexible gasket will seal off the gap, which, in addition to allowing movement at the panel perimeter, dampens the passage of sound through it.
