Acoustical to Drywall Transition Moldings
Armstrong Ceiling & Wall Systems
March 27, 2013
The company has expanded its line of acoustical to drywall transition moldings with the addition of five new offerings. The new additions include both 9/16- and 15/16-inch Flush Transition Moldings, 9/16- and 15/16-inch Tegular Transition Moldings, and “F” Vertical Transition Molding. Transition moldings eliminate the need for corner bead and vertical taping, a separate acoustical wall angle installation, and return framing to support a vertical drywall return. Transition moldings are easier to install than conventional transition methods because they combine an acoustical molding with a drywall taping flange. Because fewer parts and pieces are required, installation time and costs are reduced. The additions also feature a pre-punched vertical web to improve screw attachment, and a knurled and slotted integral taping flange on many of the items to accommodate taping and finishing. Factory-painted to match the company’s acoustical suspension systems, the new transition moldings are compatible with all types of framing, including Armstrong Drywall Grid and ShortSpan.
