Rated Base Reveal
Flush or recessed base board requires an additional layer of drywall which will increase the width of the wall. CEMCO FAS-RBR (Rated Base Reveal) eliminates the requirement for an additional layer of drywall and still maintains the fire rating.
- Allows the door throat size to maintain the same width as a standard 1-hour wall of single layer drywall on each side
- Will save labor and material costs of the second layer of drywall required by the traditional method in order to maintain fire ratings
- Has a manufactured J-Bead as part of the profile for ease of drywall installation and is ready to receive joint compound
- Can be manufactured in custom sizes for various recessed options and widths

Decorative Flexible Framing System
While Flex-C Trac has become a benchmark product for framing curves, its offspring has not been as widely known. Even while living in the shadows of framing masterpieces of his big brother, Flex-C Angle has been shaping its own place in architectural history and edifices. Flex-C Angle is used in many of the more spectacular and eye-catching features, and in these, is actually performing amazingly efficiently. When a curved soffit has an exterior curved corner, where two perpendicular framing components meet, Flex-C Angle is just the product for the job. So remember, for walls, Flex-C Trac, for soffits Flex-C Angle.
The line is available in both 20 and 16 gauge. For more information, visit flexabilityconcepts.com.
