Trim-Tex Deflection Bead is currently being installed in one the largest hotel and event spaces in the Twin Cities.

Trim-Tex Wall Mounted Deflection Bead ensures that any building movement does not cause inside corner ceiling cracks – helping to keep the building looking new. Deflection Bead is designed to work in any multi-story tower with concrete decks. Deflection Bead features a flexible co-extruded gasket that compresses and expands during building movement. It offers up to 7/16” of deflection protection. To aid in finishing, Wall Mounted Deflection Bead also features a tear off strip, which leaves a clean finished edge.

Zintl Commercial Construction Systems is performing building construction at the JW Marriott Mall of America. The hotel's developer is Mortenson, owned by Hotel Development LLC, an arm of the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community. Marriott International will manage the property.
