Sto Corp. introduces Sto Mesh Corner Bead Standard and Sto Drip Edge Profile. These accessory products work with StoTherm® ci and StoQuik® Silver wall systems to enhance the quality of the wall systems. Sto Corp. is the first wall systems manufacturer to introduce such accessories in the U.S. market.
Sto Mesh Corner Bead Standard provides a solution to create true and straight corners that are resistant to chipping and cracking in StoTherm ci and StoQuik Silver wall systems. The Sto accessory is made of an angled strip of mesh (90° angle) reinforced with a plastic rail, providing a cost-effective and easy-to-apply alternative to the process of wrapping building corners with mesh reinforcement layers. Sto Mesh Corner Bead Standard is compatible with all Sto basecoat products and provides strength and protection against everyday knocks, enhancing the long-term durability of the façade.
Sto Drip Edge Profile is a PVC accessory with integral reinforcing mesh that creates a drip edge and plaster return in Sto’s two wall systems. Its intent is to control the direction of dripping water and help protect the building enclosure from moisture intrusion in vulnerable areas such as fascia returns, balcony undersides and other projecting building elements. Sto Drip Edge Profile is easy to apply, eliminating labor and costs associated with cutting of drip reveals in foam insulation. The accessory also provides additional crack resistance with its integral mesh reinforcement and helps achieve straighter, cleaner lines at plaster returns.
