Metal Lath > Foundation Weep Screed

 

 

FOUNDATION WEEP SCREED (NO. 7)
This bead is now required by most building codes and by ASTM C1063 on all framed walls as part of a drainage system for exterior stucco applications. The 3½ inch nailing flange serves as a flashing when water resistant breathable building paper or paper backed lath is installed over the flange. The "V" stop is punched with holes primarily intended as keying mechanisms. These also offer minor moisture weeping capabilities. As stucco cures it will shrink slightly away from the "V" stop allowing moisture to flow down the building paper and exit down the sloped surface. Available in galvanized steel and zinc alloy (by special request) in 10 ft. lengths. Packaged 10 pcs. per bundle,100 bundles per pallet.

* The Uniform Building Code requires that all weep screeds have a 3½” nailing flange with holes, manufactured from minimum 26-gage steel. Flashing should be applied in the form of asphalt-saturated construction paper or flashing strips behind all expansion joints and all joints should be imbedded in caulk. AMICO recommends the use of galvanized lath and either zinc alloy or vinyl accessories for all exterior stucco applications.
